From Flickr:
"Tags are like keywords or labels that you add to a photo to make it easier to find later. You can tag a photo with phrases like "catherine yosemite hiking mountain trail." Later if you look for pictures of Catherine, you can just click that tag and get all photos that have been tagged that way."

How to do this:

  1. When you upload photos to on step 3 you can add tags.
  2. On step 3, create the same tag for each of your photos (exp, "forgickr")
  3. After you finished upload all of you photos go to
  4. Enter your tag ("forgickr") and user name and then select all the photos you need for your slide show
  5. Press next and that's it!
Let me know if you have any questions

Good luck

Flickr Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Flickr is a more sophisticated network, of where you share photos, and people rate them, using it like 'face book', could, if not will, make you unpopular, it is a great website for photo sharing, but it is taken very seriously by some people.

How do I transfer pictures from my Windows Live Photo Gallery to Facebook

Hi Thomas:
Live Upload is a new add-in for Windows Live Photo Gallery that lets you upload pictures from the desktop on to your Facebook account(s).

This is very useful if you have multiple accounts on Facebook and need to share the same set of photographs across both your Facebook accounts.

For instance, both you and your wife may have separate accounts on Facebook but need to share that same set of vacation pictures with your own circle of private Facebook friends. Why duplicate the work when you can upload pictures and videos to both albums in one go.


Once you install the Facebook plugin, select the pictures you want to send to Facebook and then choose "Live Upload to Facebook" from the Publish menu.

Windows Live Gallery already supports publishing photos to Flickr and with this plug-in, you can easily share the same photos across both Flickr and Facebook. It will also transfer the associate people tags with your photos.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day

Cannot email pictures

Why don't you upload your photos to one of the many free photo sharing websites, and merely share the weblink to your photos with your friends. In this manner, both you and your friend's email boxes are not clobbered by these huge files. Here are several good sites.

How to download

Hi Kevin,

When you upload pictures into Flickr and the your server is experiencing connection problem sometimes the process will stop and then you will have to upload the picture again.

In order to create different size pictures I recommend on using a free software for editing pictures and do "resize", I use a free program called which has all the tools you need to edit pictures:

Highly recommended!

Good luck
