Galleries: Unleash your inner curator

galleries-iconThere’s a long list of features that we’ve wanted to develop for our members. Giving our members a way to celebrate the creativity of their fellow members has always been high on that list. Today, we’re thrilled to launch our newest feature: galleries.

For whatever you find interesting, fascinating, or mind-blowing on Flickr, galleries are a way to curate up to 18 public photos or videos of your fellow members into one place around a theme, an idea or just because. Here are a few favourites from our preview:

And, don’t miss Contemporary Black & White Portraiture The Future Is Now, Half Sky, Half Water, tea, Heaven for Book People, beautiful fish, the blue hour. We’d like to thank our generous members who participated in our galleries preview. You can see even more of their work in Explore / Galleries.
