How to Share Private Flickr Photos With Non Members?

Flickr gives you full control to set who can see your photos you post on your Flickr account. If you set your privacy setting as 'Private', only friends and family can see your Flickr photos. But, if they do not have a Flickr account, then you can share your Flickr photos by creating a 'Guest Pass'. Flickr Guest Pass allows non Flickr members see your photos. Following is the step by step process how you create a Guest Pass to share private Flickr photos with non members:
  1. Go to the photos that you want to share.
  2. Click on the envelope that you will see above the picture.
  3. Type in the message and email address to the person that you want to share the image with.
  4. Click Send. What this does, is issue a 'guest pass' to your recipient so that they can view your photos.

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!!
