Uploading RAW files to Flickr


Active Member
Thanks, Satinder for sharing the information to make picture private in Flickr. Much appreciated.
What if Flickr finds out that the photo is not really a JPG file and deletes it? How safe are your photos then? This method violates there terms and conditions that you can read here. https://www.flickr.com/help/guidelines/

Don't use your account to host web graphics, like logos and banners, or as a replacement for a content distribution network.
If we find you using your account to host generic graphic elements of web page designs, logos, icons, and other non-photographic elements on other web sites, or if you show suspicious upload behavior that impacts the stability of our servers, we will warn you or delete your account.
You can still go ahead and follow this method but it won't be so cool if you don't have a physical backup and Flickr decides to delete your stuff when they find out. :)
