Flickr web service

Apologies to all if I have overlooked something dumb and simple. How do you use the Flickr service?

I see that in Tools | Options that there is a tab called Flickr. I successfully went through the Authorize and Complete processes. All seemed to be successful. But now what do I do?

I can connect to my Flickr account using HTTP but this seems to just act like a regular web page. I thought that there would be some more direct method made available to manipulate the files there. What am I missing?

I was surprised not to find 'flickr' at all when searching these Discussions. I would RTFM... if I could find it. Sorry

Ah, thank you.

Yes, I managed with the registration and authentication setup steps with Flickr - got that all working... but then I could not see what to do thereafter. Somehow, I missed the bit about using it to store screenshots. That makes sense now. Very innovative.

Nice tutorial, Stephen! Someone should use this within the Terminals documentation. I'll be linking to this post in an review of Terminals that I'm writing for a web site.
