Cette page est destinée à étudier les stratégies de sauvegarde d'un compte flickr.
Via un post d'Alex lu sur Sauvegarde Flickr, je suis ravi de découvrir downloadair. Une solution simple pour récupérer quelques photos hébergées sur mon compte Flickr : https://downloadair.ghusse.com/
La sauvegarde est en cours et peut plusieurs heures.
@Clément : toutes les métadonnées (EXIF et commentaires) sont perdus. Néanmoins, je prévois de tester l'interface-utilisateur de Downloadair pour sauvegarder en local quelques images posées par les amis sur le silo Flickr. ++ xtof 28 décembre 2016 à 17:45 (UTC)
- Clément a trouvé mais n'a pas testé http://try.digi.me/desktop une solution de sauvegarde pour iOS et Android.
- Vincent a essayé Bulkr pour récupérer une archive complète avec métadonnées d'environ 50000 photos (mettre lien vers URL galerie)
Alternative indieweb à tester en 2017
Comment déposer une archive flickr sur un site personnel
- poser son flux complet Flickr sur un site local. https://github.com/aaronpk/Flickr-Archiver
- Alex utilise "fgallery" est un générateur de galerie photo statique sans fioritures qui a un look élégant et minimaliste. exemple : Bellinzona > https://www.thregr.org/~wavexx/software/fgallery/ - "fgallery" montre vos photos, et rien d'autre. Il n'y a pas de traitement côté serveur, seulement la génération statique. La galerie qui en résulte peut être téléchargée n'importe où sans exigences supplémentaires et fonctionne avec n'importe quel navigateur moderne.(...)
- Depuis juillet 2014, toutes les photos d'Olivier Ezratty sont rassemblées en [un seul endroit](http://www.oezratty.net/wordpress/photos) géré grâce au plugin WordPress **Photo-Folders** qu'il développé pour lui-même.

Why POSSE to Flickr in particular?
- Tantek Çelik: I noticed that my Flickr photos get some notable re-use due to better discoverability of Flickr photos, and CC licensing. Thus to encourage more notable re-use, I am POSSEing my photos to Flickr, and selectively make them public.
How to export your data
There are various tools for exporting your photos, comments, tags, and favorites from Flickr. Please document such tools here.
From one's account page, Flickr offers a one-click tool that will email you a link for data download.
You can use this tool to download the information that Flickr has about your account, including account preferences, profile information, and your photos and videos. This process will take some time, so we’ll send you an email when it’s ready for you to download.
Using Flickr Camera Roll
This method exports the photos only, no meta information like tags and albums. Open https://www.flickr.com/cameraroll and you should see all of your photos. You can click-and-drag to select multiple photos. At the bottom of the page will be options for the selected photos. Click "Download" and you will be prompted to save a zip file of the selected photos. If you select a large amount of photos, it may automatically break them into separate zip files. I exported 841 photos on 2016-02-23 and it made two zip files. gRegor Morrill
flickr-cli by TheFox is a command-line PHP tool for uploading and downloading Flickr items. It's download function has an option to download all of a user's original files and save their metadata in YAML files.
Flickr has publicly readable feeds of tagged photos: (e.g. photos tagged with "indiewebcamp")
Flickr's feeds related to a specific user by opaque userid in the URL are also public, e.g. for userid 39039882@N00 (user: http://flickr.com/tantek ) :
photo/video posts from a user:
favorites of a user:
photos of a user: (people tagged)
Flickr has a (totally undocumented?) feed of activity for the logged in user, where activity is anything you would normally be notified about in notifications (faves, comments, replies to photos you have replied on). To limit content to only photos in your own stream, add &activity_view=photostream
These require you to be logged in and redirect to a "secret" URL and may include activity on non-public photos.
2019-02-20 Chris Hardie wrote up how he used his own custom tool to export from Flickr and import into his own WordPress blog. The code is available on Github: Flickr Export to WordPress Import with reasonable instructions.
How to POSSE
You can POSSE the following to Flickr:
- reply posts as comments on Flickr photos/videos (including POSSE reply-threading, when you reply to an indie photo/video that has a Flickr POSSE copy).
- like posts as favorites on Flickr photos/videos (including POSSE favoriting, when you like an indie photo/video that has a Flickr POSSE copy).
Bridgy Publish POSSE
- photos, videos, comments, and favorites. Photos may include tags (supported since 2016-01-08) and/or people tags.

How to backfeed from
If you POSSE to Flickr, you should backfeed all the responses to your Flickr POSSE copies. E.g.
You can use Bridgy to backfeed favorites & comments from Flickr POSSE copies back to their originals since 2015-09-17.
Feature requests for backfeeding taggings:
- tag-reply: https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issues/776
- person-tags: https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issues/488
IndieWeb POSSE backfeed examples

- manual Flickr POSSE copy: https://www.flickr.com/photos/tantek/23803704613/
- plain text tags were manually added to the POSSE copy after manual (via web UI) Bridgy Publish POSSEing of the photo
- original video post: http://tantek.com/2016/001/t3/stay-tuned-building-your-future-indieweb (video)
- manual (via Bridgy Publish) Flickr POSSE copy: https://www.flickr.com/photos/tantek/24235088549/
- revealed: "a video" text at start of caption (likely from video tag fallback) - Bridgy #612 (subsequently fixed)
- revealed: # hashtags in caption did not make it to Flickr tags automatically (added manually afterwards)
- fixed by marking them up as p-category in subsequent photo/video posts.
Summary of Flickr's features:
- account creation / management like typical silos
- photo and video posts
- post by email
- ... lots more features
Details of some specific features are provided in sections below.
Location data has different privacy settings from the photos
Photos on Flickr have a privacy setting for seeing the photo itself, and a separate privacy setting for viewing the location of the photo. For example it is possible to set a photo to public, but have the location only visible to "Friends and Family".
Flickr allows you to configure one or more geofences around locations such as "home" or "work", and any time photos are uploaded that fall into that area, the geo privacy will be set automatically.
How to delete your account
Has anyone deleted their Flickr account? What's the process? How long do they hold your data anyway? Etc.

There has been some experience with a PESOS approach not working well with Flickr:
- 2014-10-05 @anomalily
Whoa, leveling up in the #indieweb world: about to switch from PESOS to POSSE for @flickr because PESOS is failing me
Recommendation: POSSE to Flickr instead of PESOS.
Two Pages About You
Users on Flickr have two pages "about" them:
- /photos/username (also often works at just /username) - no link to your website, but shows your stream of recent photo posts, and has a rel-me link to your /people/username page:
- /people/username - has rel-me support for linking back to your website. Shows a few recent photo thumbnails, recent photos of your, your recent favorites.
No other service splits your profile identity like this. Typical silos all have integrated profile pages that show both your latest posts and your profile information like your website.
Because of this, and because Flickr encourages linking to the /photos/username page, getting rel=me to work with Flickr is a bit more out-of-the-way work, but still doable.
- version 4.0 of the Flickr smartphone app now auto-syncs every picture and video by default, without asking, which raises serious privacy issues
- "Upload failures" a.k.a. untested impact of new features
- Peter Molnar ended up using Flickr as a geotagging software due to it's relatively sophisticated drag-and-drop map organizer and to the lack of similar in linux land. The short summary is that once POSSEd photos are placed on the map in Flickr, this information can be exported and added to the local image file itself.
- Flickr originally only supported photo posts
- When Flickr added video posts they were limited to short (max 90sec) & small (max 150MB)
