The Flickr Android App speaks 9 more languages!

Also available in: Deutsch, Italiano, Français, Bahasa Indonesia, Español, 한글, Português, Tiếng Việt, 繁體中文

android-hero-english

Since its initial launch 5 months ago, we’ve seen people all over the world turn to the Flickr Android app to upload and share their pictures. We’re thrilled we can extend the Flickr Android app to even more members across the globe with the latest update, which now includes 9 new language options! German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese and Bahasa Indonesia to be precise.

Starting today, you can take photos directly from the app, enhance them with filters, and quickly send pictures to Flickr, Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere in these 9 languages.

If you already use one of these languages as the default language setting on your Android phone, your Flickr Android App will “automagically” update to match your phone settings with this new version (1.3). If you ever want to change the language in your Flickr Android app, you can do so by adjusting the language settings option on your mobile.

Don’t have the Flickr Android App installed on your mobile? Go download it at the Android Market.

Looking forward to seeing more of your photos on the go!

#firstflickrphoto

During our eighth birthday celebrations last Friday, we noticed people tweeting the very first photo they’d ever uploaded to the site. What an awesome idea! We were more than happy to encourage everyone else to join in, and you blew us away with your responses. Warm fuzzy feelings ensued and even the White House took part and shared their first photo!

Here’s a visual smörgåsbord of what people shared:

8 Years, 8 Members, 8 Stories: Kathryn Yu

For our eighth anniversary series "8 Years, 8 Members, 8 Stories" we contacted Flickr members who joined Flickr in February 2004. We asked them what the best thing that’s happened to them since they became a Flickr member, what it is that they love about Flickr, and what their eight favorite photos from other Flickr members are. We will publish the eight installments throughout the day.

KathrynOur eighth and last story contributor for the celebration of Flickr’s eighth birthday today is Kathryn Yu from New York City, USA, who has met many wonderful photographers through Flickr and was able to keep up with friends who live all around the world. When a friend of hers moved to New Zealand, she gifted her a Flickr Pro account so they could easily keep in touch!

Momofuku Ssam Bar

"A close friend of mine pointed out she was in one of my Flickr photos. But the photo was taken before we had even met! She found it afterwards. And mind-blowingly, she pointed out that Anthony Bourdain was in the shot, and I hadn’t even noticed at the time!"

Finally, Kathryn presents us her eight favorite photos.

It's my favorite time of the day to photograph.

"My friend Bonjwing is a food photographer & cookbook author who travels the world. I want to live inside of his photos. Please add this feature to Flickr."

"Because you never, ever see Grand Central empty."

"I love people who still shoot film."

"I like this one because it appears as if the bear is investigating these strange human specimens."

substance d

"Rabbit costumes are creepy. Period."

Florent Farewell - Darinka Chase

"Florent may be gone, but we still have the memories…"

"I’m pretty convinced that Roger can take an interesting portrait of anybody."

036

"Katie Sokoler is a great photographer but also has been documenting Improv Everywhere for the last 5 years. Who doesn’t love a black tie beach?"

Thank you Kathryn for telling us your story!

We hope you have enjoyed our "8 Years, 8 Members, 8 Stories" series!
