Here are some tips on the how to share your photos with Kew on Flickr.
Step One: Join Flickr
It is free to join Flickr, and once you have joined, you can share your favourite photos with your family, friends and the world. You'll need a Yahoo ID.
Step Two: Join the 'Your Kew' group
We run a group in Flickr — it's like a club. You're invited to join. Any photos you submit to the group may be seen on this site. People can comment, too! To join you will need to accept the group rules, and read and understand the Terms & Conditions.
Step Three: Upload Your Photos
Uploading your photos to Flickr is easy — the site explains how once you have joined.
Step Four: Describe and Tag Your Photos
Include as much information as possible in the title and description of your photo
- meaningful image titles that describe the subject of each photo and where the photo was taken in the gardens
- other descriptive content about your photo.
You must tag your photos so that we know what they are and so we can display them in the right place the Kew website.
- As all photos in the group must be taken at Kew Gardens or at Wakehurst Place, please make sure you tag your photo either kew or wakehurst
- If you are submitting a picture of a certain plant then tag your photo to describe it, for example oak or autumn or pagoda. Or all three if it's a picture of an oak tree by the Pagoda in autumn! You can add as many tags as you like.
Step Five: Submit Your Photos To The Group
Open your photo page. Click the button marked Send To Group. Choose Your Kew. It's done!
You can submit as many photographs as you like to the group, but please keep them recent and please just add your best ones!
All we ask is that the photos submitted to the Your Kew Flickr Group must have been taken at Kew Gardens, Surrey or Wakehurst Place, West Sussex.
