                 Flickr: UPLOADING PHOTOS
 Sets--a grouping of photos that you can organize around a
  certain theme, such as Our Get Together. You can use them to
  highlight your favorite photos, or make an album that is only
  pictures of your employees in the party, or of photos you've
  taken with a particular camera.




                      Flickr: Flickr SETS
 The Organizer is where both Collections and Sets are created. It
  also allows you to perform common tasks on large batches of
  photos, such as tagging, changing permissions, or editing
  timestamps etc.




                        Flickr: ORGANIZE
• Collections are a grouping of Sets (or other Collections) so you
  can organize around grander themes, such as People, Trips,
  Events or by Month and Year.




                      Flickr: COLLECTIONS
   Tags
   Favorites
   Contacts
   Groups

 Groups are a way for people to come together around a common
  interest or a topic.
 If you can’t find a group which interests you, start your own.
 Groups can either be public, public (invite only), or completely
  private. Every group has a pool for sharing photos and a
  discussion board for talking and conversation.

Flickr: INFORMATION DISPLAY
 Privacy is a common area for concern on the web, but on Flickr
  it’s easy to control who you share your images with. For each of
  your photos on Flickr you can set:
   – privacy level, which determines who can see your image
   – usage license, so your copyrights are protected
   – content type, flag your photos as either photos,
       artwork/illustrations, or screenshots
   – safety level, so other members only see images within their
       specified comfort zones
 You can choose who can see your photos, add tags, notes, favs
  and comments
