The photos in the Flickr photo album are arranged based upon the date the photo was entered on the site. In general this will also be similar to the dates the photos were taken, but they may be significantly different. The first photos are the photos that were entered most recently. Scrolling through the photos you will be looking from the most recently entered photos to the photos entered earlier. If you wish to look for a specific photo, the recently entered photos will have both titles and tags which are searchable.
Check the list shown at right for searchable terms. Searching for a photo or a set of photos can be done using the white search bar visible in the upper right corner of the Flickr window. When you type your search word such as “Bird” in the search bar, you will notice below what you have typed will be a set of search locations. Be sure to click the “This Group” option. If you do not limit the search to the group, you will be searching for your keyword in the entire Flickr database.
You can also make comments on photos or have discussions, all of which are supported by Flickr. If you wish to comment on a photo, you should open the photo by clicking on it, then make your comment by clicking the small white speech bubble visible in the lower right corner when the cursor hovers over the picture.

In order to post your photos to the Wake Audubon Flickr Photostream, you must have your own Flickr account. This is free up to a terabyte of data. Once you have created your own Flickr account (actually a Yahoo account – Flickr is owned by Yahoo), search to find our Wake Audubon group, and submit a request to join it. We encourage your submissions – though, for the enjoyment of all who view them, they must follow these guidelines:
This is important and worth your time because as the number of photos increase people will want to find specific kinds of photos and having the appropriate tag will facilitate this.
