How to create a Flickr photostream

Get tagging with Flickr.

7. You can invite friends and family to view your photostreams by email or by uploading the link to your blog (if you have one). We set up a custom link for our photostream so that friends could search our snaps by entering a meaningful URL rather than an impossible-to-remember code.

8. If you're a Facebook member, you can link the two sites. Search for Flickr on Facebook to find the official Flickr link. You need to give Facebook permission to import your Flickr photostream. Enter your Yahoo email address and Flickr password to confirm the link. You can do the same in Blogger, Wordpress and MySpace.

9. Instead of simply setting your photos as Private, you can use the Creative Commons Licence to place limits on their usage. Go to Organize, Permissions (or click Edit next to the copyright symbol) to set permissions and specify whether other people can distribute and display your snaps.

10. If yours is a free Flickr account, friends can only download the image they see onscreen (or a smaller one). Only paid-for Pro account users can allow other people to download their originals. Flickr resizes photos to be 100, 240, 500 or 1,024 pixels along its longest edge. You can set size options on the Permissions page.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
