I'd like to use a photo I found on Flickr. How do I do that?
Flickr doesn't act as matchmakers so you'll need to contact the photographer yourself. Only members of Flickr can send messages to one another, so if you haven't created an account, that's your first step. As a member of Flickr, you can mouse over someone's buddy icon and click the little arrow to activate the "person menu." From there, select "Send FlickrMail" to compose your message. When contacting the photographer, it's best to include as much info as possible about the photo, yourself, and how you would like to use the photo.
