How to Improve Public Searches of Your Flickr Photos?

You may come across a situation when your photos are not appearing in Flickr public search results. In that case follow the process given below:

  1. Upload five or more public photos to your account.
  2. Turn off your default "hide from search" settings for new photos.
  3. Use 'Organizr' to ensure existing photos are searchable:
    a. Mouse over You, then select Organize.
    b. Drag and drop photos into the batch area.
    c. Click Permissions | Hide/show in public searches.
    d. Uncheck Hide these items from public searches.
    e. Click Change.
  4. Before photos are searchable or shareable, Flickr staff must moderate the account. Request a review of your account.
  5. Add accurate tags and descriptions to your photos so they're easier to find.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
