8. If you're a Facebook member, you can link the two sites. Search for Flickr on Facebook to find the official Flickr link. You need to give Facebook permission to import your Flickr photostream. Enter your Yahoo email address and Flickr password to confirm the link. You can do the same in Blogger, Wordpress and MySpace.

10. If yours is a free Flickr account, friends can only download the image they see onscreen (or a smaller one). Only paid-for Pro account users can allow other people to download their originals.
