How should I supply my printed images?

Prints, of any size, should be mounted on card backing of size ideally 50 x 40cm.

This website / Flickr

My photos are not appearing on this website

This website shows a limited number of latest photos from the Flickr group. If you have recently added a photo to the group and cannot also see it on this website, check the following:

Is the photo available via public searches? To check this, try using the search bar to search for your photo whilst you are not logged in (giving the title a unique name will help here). If you photo does not appear in the search results then your photo and possibly Flickr account may be blocked from public feeds, so try the following…

  1. Check that your account is marked as Safe by Flickr: www.flickr.com/help/with/review – scroll down and look for "Your account has been reviewed as safe by Flickr staff." Ignore that yellow box at the top saying things have moved. If you cannot find that text then follow the instructions on that page to enable Flickr to review your account and mark it as Safe. Once that is done you should be able to add your photos back to the group and they should show up.
  2. Check that you have not ticked any boxes here (ie opted out of searches): www.flickr.com/account/prefs/optout/
