Some sites are big hits, and some are carbon-copy wannabes. Most are innovative, but don’t quite take off the way their creators hoped they would. This is mainly because massive websites cover the market so well.
The platform that managed to cover image sharing is Flickr. It is a place for people to show off their work, and it is probably the most popular photo site on the Web. It has plenty of professional portfolios, amateur albums, and even Creative Commons items you can use freely for personal or commercial purposes—with proper credit, of course.
If you use Flickr and want to increase your visibility, there are several ways you can do so. But first, I want to address a common misconception people have about the site.
