Flickr adds to sharing options, now easier to share photos across the Web

It sure is nice to see some new developer action over at Flickr. The relatively slow-moving photo-sharing service has just announced a new sharing update, which consists of several new and easy ways to embed or link to your photos: Share from Photo page: There's a new sharing option on each and every photo page. When logged off, the button shows only Facebook and Twitter options. But once...

Flickr adds lightbox viewer for iPad surfers

Flickr has announced that visitors who browse the site using an iPad can now view photos using a lightbox-style viewer. On any photo page, simply tap the picture you'd like to view and the background will darken and the higher-resolution image will load in the foreground. It's a subtle change, but one which definitely makes browsing Flickr on an iPad a more enjoyable (and efficient) experien...

Cloud Save for Google Chrome sends files from the Web to your online storage

We've shared a handful of Google Chrome context menu extensions before, and this weekend we discovered a new one which is oozing potential: Cloud Save. Install Cloud Save, and you'll add the ability to right-click files on Web pages you visit and zap (or sideload) them to various online services like Google Docs, Dropbox, Picasa, Flickr, Posterous, CloudApp, and Box.Net. The extension appear...

Flickr for Windows 7 tablets and Windows Phone 7 officially introduced

Originally unveiled back in January, Flickr has now officially introduced its apps for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 tablets. You'll find the Flickr WP7 app in the Zune Marketplace, while its tablet-friendly cousin is downloadable from this page (Silverlight required). Both apps provide a slick interface for browsing and searching Flickr, and they also provide a nice way to upload and manage yo...

Creepy app uses Twitter and Flickr data to track anyone on a map

When you post a photo online -- especially from a phone with a built-in camera -- you're likely sharing more than the picture itself. The same is true for updates you post on Twitter. Location data is commonly included, and crafty types can do all kinds of creepy things with that information. A good example of what's possible is Creepy, a desktop app which lets you track a Flickr or Twitter ...

Five great photo sharing apps for your iPhone

Ever since the introduction of cameras to mobile phones people have been snapping photos of just about everything on their daily travels. The dawn of the smartphone brought the ability to share things to a wider audience than MMS could reach, and when the smartphone collided with decent-enough camera modules, the social photo sharing craze kicked off. The iPhone hasn't escaped the deluge of ph...

Yahoo to enable Google and Facebook sign-in on all its Web properties

The Yahoo Network of Web properties will soon let you sign in with your Facebook or Google credentials. The change will go live tomorrow, January 20, and effectively hammers the death knell for Yahoo's continuing identity crisis. Yahoo first rolled out a federated OpenID login to Flickr back in October, but Google was the only accepted third-party sign-in. With the upcoming change, you will be...

Flickr for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 tablets shown off in promo video

Windows Phone 7 may have 5,500 apps, but Flickr isn't one of them -- yet. The Yahoo-owned photo sharing service has released a preview video of its up-and-coming app for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 tablet devices. All the expected features seem to be there, with photo viewing, uploading, and sharing mixed together with Metro-styling on WP7. Sideways scrolling panes take president, and WP7 device...

Flipboard, the RSS and social aggregator that recently won Apple's US iTunes iPad app of the year, has gotten a pretty solid update today featuring even more sources for quality content. First up is a pretty big one -- Flipboard now integrates with Google Reader, arguably the most popular way of organizing RSS feeds. Now you can sign in with your Google account, pull in and sync up all your feeds...

5 perfect computery Christmas gifts for your mother, father or family elder

Let's be honest: if you're reading Download Squad, you're in the 99th percentile when it comes to computer technology. You probably know how to touch type, or send a file across the world at the speed of light, and in all likelihood you own one of the big three video game consoles. Like all things that you've grown up with and come to rely on, though, you don't realize just how lucky you are to ha...

Viewfinder - a Mac app for finding the right image on Flickr

If you're a blogger, a designer, or just someone who uses a lot of images from Flickr, you might want to check out ViewFinder. ViewFinder is a Mac app that offers speedy searches of Flickr, using tags, titles and descriptions. It even lets you limit your search to Creative Commons-licensed images, and automatically generates attributions for you, so you can properly credit the work you download. ...

Flickr Schedulr lets you create an automated queue of uploads to Flickr

Flickr, like all social networks, can be gamed. Yes, you can simply upload photos to share them with friends and family, but for many users -- the Flickrites -- there's a whole lot more to it than that. For the elite few -- the Flickr version of 'social media experts' -- it's all about garnering exposure, and thus accruing views and comments. Ultimately, I guess there are dreams and delusions of ...

Flickr adds Google accounts to sign-in options, plans better OpenID support

Starting today, signing up for Flickr is possible using Google accounts. This feature is rolling out as part of a new push from Flickr to support OpenID. Google is the first partner, but support for more services is expected in the future. Up until now, Yahoo-owned Flickr required a Yahoo ID to use. As you can see in the screenshot to the right, this is now also possible using an existing Googl...

Flickr now imports Facebook friends, suggests users you may know

Flickr has added a couple of new features today. People You May Know is a rather self-explanatory tool that suggests friends for you based on your existing contacts and the people they know. This feature now appears on the Find Your Friends page, but also has a module on the Flickr homepage. You can categorize people as a friend, family, or contact right within the module. To have new suggestio...

Flickriver is a fun way to browse through Flickr photos

Flickriver was briefly mentioned on Download Squad back in 2007, but it really deserves its own post. It's a very simple interface for browsing Flickr photos which displays a bunch of photos on the page, and you scroll down to view them. As you near the bottom, more photos are loaded so that you can just keep scrolling. This is by no means a new trick, but I find it very convenient and easy to us...
