I have a pro account but I don’t have all the answers. this is what I do know.

You cannot download in bulk, you can only download one picture at a time.  The good thing about Flickr is that you can download at higher quality.  They can download for free and do not have to sign in as long as you give them the address to the set.

You CAN create multiple sets (AKA folders)

You CAN upload in bulk.  I downloaded a program to do this.  I don’t know if you can do bulk on the website.

The downside is that people cannot upload to your account.

“We” by that I mean Darling Husband has one.  I’ll try to answer some of your questions.

1. yes if you create a group anyone can download photos (ONE at a time!).  There are tons of settings to block, include people.  The hard part is if you want to only include some people (like family) you either need them each to have an account or make an account where you feel comfortable giving out the password.  It’s not like a regular “client photos” section.  I’m not 100% sure of all the settings.

2. see above – I have yet to figure out a way to download more than one at a time – don’t think it can be done.  it’s painfully slow going to each photo, loading the full size or large size version and downloading each.  BUT!! free – most photographers dont’ give you anywhere near that privledge.

3. no I don’t think that non pro people – OR anyone can upload to your account.  From what I know ONLY you can upload to your account. unless you give them the password and let them log in.

4. yes! you can create “sets”, “galleries”, “collections”

5. no if you set the settings the way you want, you can make it so anyone can download the photos, without a password.  Note: really hard core people don’t let anyone download anything – add watermark to their photos.  this is extreme but there are tons of options.

6. other… you can upload video!!!  Personally we really love using flickr!  It’s really convient since Darling Husband uses large file sizes and the unlimited is really helpful!  You can easily share photos with others, track your hits/downloads etc.  I admit: downloading each photo one by one can be anoyning… esp for my grandma after our wedding, but like I said you’ll be hard pressed to find a professional photographer who freely gives you the rights to just take them whenever you want!  of course you get the benefits of having your files digitally saved, you can tag people (we’ve never used), create different folders etc, order prints (we’ve never used their service) and all the usual stuff you get with a online photo gallery site.
