What do you like best?
The popularity of Flickr is mainly due to the ability to manage images through tools that allow authors to: tag their photographs, explore and comment on other users' images. Flickr is a tool that can be used to enhance photography classes. Storage: allows you to classify and store photos. In addition to sharing them with whoever you want.
Pro version: there is a version that is not free (costs 18 to 20 annual approx.), Which is the ability to save unlimited number of photos you want, with the maximum resolution.
You can choose to view the images in various sizes and even in presentation mode
It is very easy to upload the photos, label them and describe them
The organization of the photos is very simple.
What do you dislike?
Quality: in the free version, the photos lose resolution as in Facebook.
Privacy: only allows you to share it with all your friends or family, or with anyone, I would prefer an application that would allow us to discriminate between my own contacts, since I could have the intention of sharing it with only a few. The same problem with Facebook.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Subscribers of free accounts can upload videos in normal quality and 100 MB in photos per month, with a maximum of 200 images as cap, for each free account. After reaching these limits, only the last 200 images uploaded remain visible, that is, the first charges become hidden, but they are not eliminated. In the same way, a user with a free account can only upload images with a maximum resolution of 1024 * 768 pixels, that is, if a higher resolution image is loaded in a free account, the site resizes it to the indicated resolution.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It has a community of users who share photographs and videos created by themselves. This community is governed by rules of behavior and conditions of use that favor the good management of the contents. Allows searches of images by tags, by date and by Creative Commons licenses.
Other functions are the RSS and Atom channels, and the API that allows independent developers to create services and applications linked to Flickr. The service is based on the usual characteristics of HTML and HTTP, allowing it to be useful in multiple platforms and web browsers. The interface of labeling and text editing uses AJAX, which is also compatible with the vast majority of browsers. Images (photographs or videos) can also be sent via email.
Organizing is a non-essential component of Flickr, which is based on Adobe Flash technology, which is widely available but not fully open.
