Flickr and Pinterest Make Image Attribution Easier

Flickr And Pinterest

On Labour day, Flickr declared that it’s collaborating with social networking site Pinterest to make sure pictures posted from famous photo-sharing site are always the right way attributed.

Past few months Pinterest gained popularity by users uploads and paste images to their virtual pin boards. However, not all images are the right way attributed to their rightful owners.

To set the problem, Flickr has set up a Pinterest button in the share menu of its site that automatically acknowledgments the picture when it’s shared. Remaining websites are also getting automatic rating with Pinterest today are YouTube, Behance and Vimeo.

If anyone doesn’t want to share their content then use the menu button to disable that feature, only for Flickr photos.
This will make it a lot easier for Flickr users to get the image attribution on Pinterest, a Flickr spokesperson told Mashable. All of the images shared from Flickr will be updated retroactively.
Because the rating cannot be edited, pins and reblogs shared via Flickr will always be credited back to the original photographer

We want people to feel easy about image-sharing and wanted to take the hard part of rating out of the equation by making the process automatic.
