This form is only for uploading work found on Flickr created by someone else (not you). To upload work from somewhere other than Flickr, please use a different form.

The statement "This photo is public" DOES NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT COPYRIGHT. It only says that the photo is publicly viewable.

Flickr images have seven different licensing options. Only some are OK here:

If the image is OK, use Flinfo tool to extract the summary information and paste it below.

Licenses with NC (non-commercial use only) or ND (no derivative works allowed to be created) are not OK here. If the image is not OK, consider asking the author to release their work under a free license such as CC-BY (Creative Commons Attribution license) or CC-BY-SA (Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike).

Below the Information template, insert some categories that describe the content shown in the work. Fill in the description. Change the destination filename to something descriptive and meaningful. Be sure to upload the 'Original' or 'Large' version of the image, nothing smaller!

Keep in mind that Flickr users often don't know about copyright. If it is suspected that they are not the author of the work, it may be deleted here.

Commons provides an experimental service, which enables users to easily transfer images from Flickr. This tool is still experimental, but you are welcome to try it as an alternative to this page.
