Flickr Milestone – 2 Million Views!

I began using Flickr to showcase my images in 2007. It has been a successful site for me, I have sold many images to web site and publishers that they discovered from the Flickr Page.

Here is the link.

Last week I surpasses 2,000,000 views!

The first million views took 7 years, the second million, only 2!

Flickr is easy to use, uploading is fast, and I can create albums and galleries to gather groupings of images for submissions.

Flickr also has a cool feature called Explore, where the best 100 images are culled each day.

I have been lucky, more than 30 of my images have made it into Explore. here is the one that pushed me over the 2,000,000 mark.

Flickr Explore

If you’ve taken a photograph at any point since 2004, chances are you have heard of Flickr. Whether shot by professional or amateur, advanced or novice, more than 6 billion photos have taken up residence on Flickr, the Web’s most popular image hosting community. Each day the best images are selected for Flickr Explore.

Explore is Flickr’s way of showcasing the most interesting photos within a given point in time — usually over a 24 hour period.

Flickr receives about 6,000 uploads every minute — That’s about 8.6 million photos a day! From this huge group of images, the Flickr Interestingness algorithm chooses only 500 images to showcase for each 24-hour period. That’s only one image in every 17,000!

My Flickr name is i8Seattle. Here is a link to my Flickr page!

So far I’ve had 34 of my images showcased on Flickr Explore.I must admit that its a pretty big win for me when one of my images is chosen for Explore!
