You could create a separate account just for wedding pictures.

I second MaryAlison’s idea, and that is exactly what I’ll be doing. I have a pro account for my personal pics, and I have almost 2000 shots in there – there is no way I am letting a bunch of people who don’t really know what they’re doing fool around in there. It’s worth the $25 investment to have a separate account for your guests to use. Set up a user name and password specific to your wedding.

No, you can not. The only thing you can do is tag contacts as friends or family and control who sees what photos, but there is no way to have a different user name and password on the same account.

I too, have just set up a pro Flickr account, and am not sure what information to put on the instruction cards for guests. From the above responses, I guess I just give them my username and password, but what web address do I direct them to just to view the photos? For example, Mrs. Lemon instructed everyone to go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/kimandchris/ to view the gallery. How do I know the web address for my personal gallery? I already tried changing "kimandchris/" to my username…and got an error.

Shimmer…..it’s been a whlie since I’ve done that, so my memory is foggy….but I think you need to go to "You", select "your account" and then use "Flickr web addresses" to select your URL.  And you only get to choose the Web address once; after that you can’t change it.

Or you could just send all your guests to Kim & Chris.  🙂

Just start a free non-pro account for the wedding photos, much easier and less risky, I think.

And the upside of the pro account (as opposed to the freebie) is the ability to upload more photos.

Thanks for debating this ladies, I have been wondering the same thing!  🙂

One more question:  Has anyone ordered pics from Flickr?  How’s the quality?  Do they frequently have sales like Snapfish, and Kodakgallery?  

I am just wondering becasue I have been on the fence with Flickr vs. Snapfish just for the fact that Snapfish has photo sales…

Sorry about the inflexibility of the FLICKR account for your own use. Essentially, think of the pro account as a $25 cost for your guests photos. Since you can DOWNLOAD all of them in their full format, you’ll be able to print them out anywhere you want…. Costco, Mpix, Adorama, Kodak, etc. I have not ordered photos from flickr, as most of my orders go through adoramapix. 

You can, though, later "re-associate" your account with another Yahoo address. For example… our login was LASTNAMEwedding and we’ve since reassociated it with another yahoo email address. So we’ve been able to change both the login and the password, yet the HTML address remains the same!
