>> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com with a quick tip on how to send photos from your cell phone to the photo-sharing site Flickr. It's handy if you're traveling, you're at a sporting event or for celebrity sightings. Now when you sign up for Flickr, you get a special e-mail address that you use to send photos from your phone. To find it on Flickr site, first login and then click You and then Your Account and then now choose E-mail. You should see your Flicker upload e-mail address there or an option to create an upload to Flickr e-mail address. Now you can also click edit and then if you click this tiny link down here, Flickr will e-mail you this address, which is a pretty easy way to add it to your address book, since it's not that memory friendly. Alright, now whenever you take a picture, you just email it to Flickr. The subject line becomes the title of the photo and whatever you put in the body will be the description. This works for videos too. Now you can also add tags to your photos. You include the word tags with a colon in the subject line. So you could do tags colon monkey baby. If you want more than one word in your tag, put it in quotes like tag colon monkey baby. Alright, one thing: if you do have photo sets on Flickr, you can't specify what set to e-mail your photos to. That is kind of a bummer and I hope that Flickr will fix it quickly. Alright, but now what about smartphone apps. If you're on a BlackBerry, Flickr has a very good app that lets you post photos, tag them, even geo-tag them if your phone has GPS, you can add them to different sets, and you can even change the site. Now strangely, there is no Flickr uploading app for the iPhone. You have to use the e-mail address for uploading. There is a web app for Flickr at m.flickr.com, but it's just for viewing and searching photos. There are some third party Flickr apps like AirMe, Reflection, Darkslide Premium and Mobile Photos that work on iPhone and they're all pretty decent. So there you have it. No excuse for not posting photos from everywhere you go all day long. Try not to abuse your new found power. For CNET.com I'm Molly Wood and you're welcome. ^M00:02:03 [ Music ]
