Android 2.2 mobile phone users fond of sharing various moment in their lives with friends and family via social networking sites have now a new option available for them when it comes to Flickr.
To be more precise, we're referring here to the capability to upload photos to Flickr straight from the mobile browser included in their Android 2.2 Froyo-based handset
The new feature is being added into the mix so as to expand the photo sharing capabilities that Android mobile phone users were benefiting from until now, and which included upload-by-email.
“Flickr wants you to share photos from anywhere, including that cool new Android phone
,” Flickr's Markus Spiering announced via the company's official blog
“Up till now you’ve only been able to upload-by-email which allows you to send photos to Flickr from your phone without having an app. Starting today, you can now browse to m.flickr.com and choose exactly the photo you want to upload, directly from your phone,” Spiering continues.
Basically, when an Android 2.2
user accesses Flickr from the handset's browser, the social media site will provide an upload link straight on the Flickr homepage.
“This takes you to our mobile upload page where you will now see the option to simply “Choose a file”. Selecting this button gives you access to your photo gallery, where you can conveniently select the photo you like to upload and then send it to Flickr via the “Upload” button,” the aforementioned blog post states.
All Android 2.2 Froyo handset
users who are interested in uploading some new photos on their Flicker account should be able to do so nice and easy through accessing m.flickr.com via the browser on their devices.
“Android 2.2 is the first mobile OS that supports the file-type for the input-tag: <input type=”file” name=”photo”>, allowing the browser to pick a photo from the library and upload it directly to Flickr,” a post
on the Y! Mobile Blog states.
