Photo Pool Help

Help us collect photos from the wedding:

Our photos will be available about two months after the wedding, and we will send everyone an email with the link and instructions for viewing and downloading.  In the meantime, we’re trying to collect some of the fabulous photos that our guests took.  To do that, we’re using a tool called Flickr.

What’s Flickr?
Great question!  Flickr is a social media site, kind of like youtube, for people who want to share photos.  Each day, Flickr users upload thousands of photos and share them with their friends and the world.  It’s totally free to make an account (though you have to pay if you want to upload a  lot of pictures).  You can check out all the details at www.flickr.com

What’s a Flickr Pool?
Another great question!  In Flickr, users can create “pools” or “groups” where all of their friends can upload photos into one album.  This way, people like us, can collect all the photos from an event in one place. We’ve created a Flickr pool for our wedding photos, which you can see here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1493067@N21/

How can I upload my photos to your Flickr Pool?
Wow, you ask fantastic questions.  Here’s what you do:
  1. Join Flickr:  If you are not already a member of Flickr, click here to create a free account.
  2. Upload your photos: Go to your homepage and click “Upload Photos and Video” on the right.  Follow the instructions on this page.  Be sure and have these photos listed as “public” so we can see them.
  3. Join our group: Once you have made a free account, log in and then go here and click “Join this Group”.
  4. Add your photos to our group:  After you join, you should be redirected back to our group’s homepage.  Click on “Group Pool/Add Something?”
  5. The box on this page will show you all the photos you’ve uploaded to your account. If you already have photos in your account, just choose the one from the wedding and click “Add to group”
    1. Please note that, for security reasons, once you submit the photos to the group, they will still need approval from us before they can be seen by everyone. We will do our best to get to them quickly, but you are welcome to e-mail us to let us know they are ready. Thanks for your patience.
  6. That’s it!  It’s easier than it sounds.  We promise.
Thank you for sharing your photos with us.  We cannot wait to see what you’ve got.
