Quickr Pickr Makes Flickr More Usable

Photos are important in anything that involve the internet. People are not content on just reading an article or going through sites, they want pictures that either supplement it or sometimes even just an infographic. That’s where sites like Flickr and Photobucket come into play. And this is also where Quickr Pickr makes itself useful.

There are a lot of image hosting sites these days and most of them offer you a free storage. Social networking sites are mostly the ones that give you almost unlimited bandwidth and storage like the Facebooks, Instagrams and Twitters. If you do websites or write blogs like me and want to share these pictures, it’s a bit harder since social networks have some limitations of showing your pictures without accessing their sites. There are also limitations on the quality of the picture since these social sites usually downsample your pictures to make them easier to access.

If you don’t want these limitations then there are dedicated image hosting sites like Flickr and Photobucket who host your pictures for you. I’ve been on Photobucket for quite some time now on a free account which gives me very little space and bandwidth (monthly consumption). I was ok with this since I never thought I would reach those limits. Now that I am, I had to go for another alternative. Luckily, Flickr was giving away 1 TB worth of storage to users and I went ahead and moved over. The problem with this was that it was very difficult to get the HTML codes for each picture in Flickr. That meant that for each photo I wanted I had to do 3 clicks at least just to get the code to enter on my blog post.

That is when I found out about Quickr Pickr.


Quickr Pickr is a website that does this for you. It’s simple, just enter your Flickr user name and it generates all public pictures. You pick the pictures and click go and it generates an automatic code with all those pictures included.

For me, Quickr Pickr was a godsend since now I can go on blogging for a little bit longer without having the need to pay for any service. Some day I will most likely need to pay for this service if my site gets a bit bigger, but for now, this works for me.
