A few facts about Flickr were drawn to my attention this week, something I hadn’t been aware of as I did not bother to read the small print when I signed up (and paid for the “PRO” account). The fact is, Flickr DOES NOT support anything other than photos. Big deal I hear you say. But what is the actual deal here? No scanned images. No drawn art. No Photoshopped pictures. If you are showing lots of Photoshopped or scanned images you will get automatically branded as “NIPSA” and you will not appear in public searches. Flickr appears to discriminate against certain types of JPEG file, those not tagged with EXIF information. This has thankfully not happened to me yet but please be aware that it could happen if you upload images that appear mostly to not be digital photos. In revenge I for one want to create a “Flickr for artwork” where photographs are BANNED! I hope I dont hear the web 2.0 wheels coming off the waggon!
