It's easy to post photos from the site to your blog once you've signed up for a free account.

To proceed, simply:

  • Visit www.flickr.com/blogs.gne to add your blog to your new account then click "layout" to select the way you would like photos displayed in your posts
  • Scroll to the bottom of your Flickr home page and select "The Commons" or "Creative Commons" to search images requiring attribution only for reuse or those in the public domain
  • Search for photos, preferrably with captions containing words or phrases related to the keywords or phrases in your post. (See the example with this post.)
  • Select the "blog it" button above your chosen photo, replace the caption above the text box with the title of your post, write your article in the text box and hit "post entry"

Voila! You've posted a photo and keyword related caption with outgoing links to one of the Web's most vibrant photo sharing communities.
