Back in 2013 I joined Flickr. To be honest for a few years I never bothered with it… but lately, I am finding that I am using Flickr more than I ever did before. And why is that?

Simply put, because Lightroom Classic allows me to share my images to my Flickr account via their Publish Services Menu. It is easy to set up a Publish Service.

Just scroll down this instruction page, until you get to the section marked Publish from Lightroom Classic to Flickr.

Follow the instructions, connect your Flickr account and then drag and drop the images you want to share to Flickr to you Photostream.

The advantages of this service, is that you don’t have to save your images to your hard-drive and then upload them to Flickr… it cuts out the middle-man as they say!

Once your images are loaded to Flickr then you can add them to Collections or Albums within the Flickr app or via the webpage. No more cluttered hard-drives and that is what I love about the Publish Services of Lightroom Classic.

On another note, years ago I purchased the Nik Collection software from Google and I am pleased to say Silver Efex 2 still works with Lightroom Classic. And I used Silver Efex 2 to refine my original edit of the image above. So, if you have the old Nik Collection from Google, give it a try, maybe this software will still work for you in Lightroom Classic… I hope so!
