Getting photos from iPhone to Flickr

I’m getting a lot of questions about how we got the images sent from our iPhone to Flickr while we were walking around. Flickr has an “email images up” capability. You have to set up an email account on Flickr. Make a contact on the iPhone for Flickr with the email address that Flickr gives you. Then, take pictures and click the “send as email” button after you snap a picture.

That’s how Patrick was getting photos on Flickr while we were walking around the neighborhood. No syncing required.

On my Nokia N95 I just use Shozu, which is a Java app, to upload my photos. Works pretty well too.

  1. So I really wanna learn how to upload straight from my iPhone to flickr, but I seem to be having problems. maybe I’m just stupid. So I followed the link, and set up a flickr account (had to set up a yahoo mail account, very annoying, yet another email address) and got the unique email account to send my photos to, but I can’t get it to work… do I need to make Yahoo my default mail on my phone, so when I email the photo, it sends from my Yahoo, and not my .mac (which is my default)? If so, that’s kind of annoying, as .mac is my primary email address. Any advice would be really appreciated…
