Get tagging with Flickr

11. The monthly upload limit for free accounts is a fairly generous 100MB. Even so, you may want to consider resizing your photos before you begin so viewers don't have to wait an age for images to load. You can automate the resizing process in many photo editors, or you can use jUploadr.

12. You may prefer to edit your photo collection online using the Picnik batch editor that's incorporated into the site. Scroll down the Flickr home page and choose ‘Edit Your Photos' or click the Edit Photo option above your snap. Note, however, that you can only keep both copies of an image with a paid-for Pro account.

14. To set up your own, click the Group tab on the Flickr home page and choose ‘Create your own group'. Decide on a type.
