Using digital applications for creative design work.
Flickr is an image, video and web services hosting suite It is a popular website and online community for users to share and embed images and photographs. It is widely used by photo researchers and bloggers to host the images that they embed in their blogs and social media The application offers the ability to release images under certain common usage licenses or label them as “all rights reserved” to protect users with copyrights.
The core function of the site relies on standard HTML and HTTP features, offering wide compatibility among platforms and browsers. Flickr provides both private and public image storage. Flickr user can post comments to a Flickr photo unless this option has been disabled by the image owner. Flickr provides a desktop client for Mac OS X and Windows that enables the user to upload images without using the web interface. One feature makes it possible to drag and drop batches of photos and users of digital photo processing and editing programs such as Adobe Lightroom can upload their photos directly to Flickr.
Flickr offers a platform to designers, photographers, researchers and bloggers to showcase work or access other user’s images as a design resource for inspiration and research. Flicker is most useful in my creative design work as a source for research and design inspiration. It is also a good media platform to communicate my design work, photography and as a storage device for images that will be used across a variety of media platforms showcasing my design work.
