Images »Flickr Photos

Flickr is a web-based photo management application which allows users to upload, organize, and share their favorite photos. It takes care of your image resizing, allows you to tag your photos, and even enables visitors to submit notes and comments on each photo. What’s more, with just a few clicks, you can post a photo from your Flickr account onto your WordPress.com blog.

Flickr Embeds

You can also embed your Flickr images in your WordPress.com blog. To do this, select one of your Flickr images, click the “More ways to share” icon, select “Grab the link” and copy the link:

Then, simply paste that link on its own line in a post or page in your WordPress.com blog and your image will appear, linked to your Flickr image:
