Flickr Tips & Guidelines

  • Flickr is a community for higher-quality photos. Save lower-resolution cell phone photos for Twitter and Facebook.
  • Add tags to your photos, including "Marquette University" for photos taken on campus
  • Less can be more. Pick quality over quantity.
  • Create photo sets that are associated with specific events.
  • Get permission from others before you post their photos on Flickr.
  • Give your photos a Creative Commons license so others can share them while giving you credit.
