How to create a Flickr photostream

Get tagging with Flickr.

3. When you start adding photos to your Flickr page, you create a photostream. This can be a single set of images or be organised by subject, location or any label you wish. To rename an image, click in the filename field and overwrite the text. Press Save, ‘Add to Set' to instantly organise your uploads.

4. If you haven't yet created any sets, you can do so now by choosing a theme for the photos the set will contain. When you're in the Organize menu, you can grab several photos on your photostream and send them all to your new set or group, or assign properties to all of them at once.

5. The photos you upload to Flickr are set as Public. You can alter this under Organize, where it's also possible to adjust whether your photos can be found by their tags, image type and other criteria. Public Flickr photos show up in image search results. You can also set age restrictions and a suitability filter.

6. There are millions of photos on Flickr. You can make your photo collection as hidden or as prominent as you like by adding obvious or more obscure tags (searchable descriptions of an image's content). For ideas, go to the Explore tab on the Flickr home page, enter a search term and see what comes up.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
