How to import Photos from iPhoto to Flickr?

You can share your photos online by publishing them directly from iPhoto to Flickr, a website where you can post photos for free. Before you can publish photos from iPhoto to Flickr, you need a Flickr account.

Sharing your iPhotos to your Flickr page is easy. All you need to do is set up your Flickr account in iPhoto and then follow the process given below. If you do not know how to set up Flickr account in iPhoto, we have explained that process as well.
