Share on Flickr with your Wi-Fi camera

Uploading directly to web services such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter is one of the many advantages found on Canon's Wi-Fi compact cameras. Flickr has now been added to the list of supported services making it easier for you to upload or back-up your photos on your account.

Setting up the camera for sharing on Flickr is similar to setting up other web services. First download the latest version of the CameraWindow DC software. Select your camera model, click on the "Downloads" tab and choose "Software". Then download and install the latest version of CameraWindow DC.

Connect your camera to your computer via a USB cable and start CameraWindow DC. Select "Set Up Web Services" and log in using your CANON iMAGE GATEWAY account. If you don't have one, you can create one here.

Select "Edit Web Services" and click "Edit" on Flickr. From this screen you can connect your Flickr account with your Wi-Fi camera. You can choose to save photos to Flickr only, or to both Flickr and your CANON iMAGE GATEWAY Online Photo Album.

You can also type a comment to be posted with every image you share or use the "Add Comment" function from your camera (if it is supported). A detailed step-by-step guide for adding any web service to your Wi-Fi camera is available in the Support area of the Canon Website.

If your camera supports the "Send via Server" or "Image Sync" function you can also choose Flickr as an online back-up destination from the set up menu.
