How do I Share My Photos with a Group?

The first thing you need to do is to be sure you have a Flickr account and that you have joined the Group.  Go to the group you want to join and  click the “JOIN GROUP” button on the left side of the page. Then you need to upload your field trip photos to your own Flickr Photostream.  You can choose to add the photos to a group at the same time you’re uploading if you click the Add to Group link on the left side of the photo upload page. If you’ve already uploaded the photos and now want to add them to a group, there are two options.  For a single photo, go to that photo’s page, scroll down to click on the Add to Group link.   Choose the group you want to add it to, and click Done! If you have a bunch of photos to add, go directly to the Group and click the Add Photos button.  You’ll now be able to choose 6 photos from your Photostream to add to the group.  Repeat if you have more than 6 to add. Only you and the group administrator can remove a photo from a group pool. Note: If you share a photo that you marked as private with a group you are a member of, other group members will be able to see that photo, but the photo won’t be displayed for people who aren’t members of the group.  So please be sure you’re adding only public photos to our groups.
