Sign up for a Flickr account

Flickr is a great place to back up and manage your entire library of photos, then share only the ones you want with friends, family, or the world! All you need is a Yahoo ID to join.

Create and use a new Yahoo ID

If you don't have a Yahoo ID, don't worry. It's easy to create one. Flickr registration will now allow you to create a new Yahoo account with an existing non-Yahoo email address.

  1. Go to Flickr.
  2. Click Sign up with Yahoo.
  3. Fill out your current email address.
    - It can be either a non-Yahoo email or you can click I’d rather create a new Yahoo email address.
  4. Fill out your personal info.
  5. Click Continue.
  6. Click Send me a code.
  7. Enter the code we sent to your inbox and click Submit.
  8. Enter your preferred Flickr name and username.
  9. Click Let’s get started.

Use a Yahoo ID you already have

 Important - Don't use a Yahoo ID that's already used on another Flickr account or it'll break that Flickr account and you'll need to contact us to get it fixed.

  1. Go to Flickr.
  2. Click Sign in.
  3. Enter your Yahoo ID and password.
  4. Enter your preferred Flickr name and username.
  5. Click Next.
