The Flickr All Sizes
page for a photo I
The All Sizes pages for photos you upload include the code you need to use the pho-
tographs on your own site. If you publish a blog, or a regular website with a blog-based
content management system, you can also set up Flickr so that photo detail pages include

to Your Account, then click the Sharing & Extending tab, and then add them in the Your
Blogs section.

mation about their products, and by publications and blogs to let people know what
they're publishing on their sites. For example, my favorite ice cream place posts their fla-
vor of the day on Twitter every day at around noon.
