Ten reasons Flickr is great for teaching photography


I taught an online digital photography class this summer and decided to use Flickr for a common online space for students to share their class work.

Below are my 10 reasons why Flickr is a great platform to teach an online photography class.

  1. Free - up to 1,000 photos.

  2. Private group page for student Flickr accounts.

  3. Exif data imports with photo.

  4. Full size uploads/downloads.

  5. Lightroom plugin for easy import.

  6. Flickr Organizer.

  7. No ads.

  8. Can make photos private.

  9. PhotoStream and albums at a glance.

  10. Photos are easy to name and describe.
