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.

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.
