How to use email to upload to flickr via IFTTT

Flickr removed the ability to upload via Email around January 2019, and in South Korea (where Flickr’s iOS/Android app is not available) it was a killer feature for me. I just want to send something over the email and expect Flickr to host my images.

There comes the IFTTT, which you can use to get the functionality back, though this will require few extra step to set up.

How-To

I’m assuming you have flickr account otherwise you wouldn’t have searched for this, right? 😛

Now, get an account on IFTTT, and go to “Create” from the sidebar. You will see something like this.

Click This, and search for Email. You will see “Send IFTTT any email” when you click Email, and then click “That”. Search for Flickr, and “Upload public photo from URL”.

Don’t touch Photo URL field: It is automatically set to email’s attachments. What you type in email Subject will become the title of your flickr file, and the same happens for the description – your email body will become the description. Remember to remove email signatures from the email!

Click Create Action, and Finish. You’re done!

In action

Now, you can email [email protected] and it will convert your email to flickr post. Note that, as this is not an official product, it may take one or two extra minutes to publish on Flickr, but it should be there anytime soon.

I uploaded this through IFTTT to Flickr gateway.

Daily post photo challenge: Security

A lock in the bed.
The lock.

Security: (n) the state of being free from danger or threat.

The photo itself was taken in 2011 and I don’t have a highest-resolution image as of now. I might be able to recover from backups, but it will take time.

Snow
Last year (and a day ago) I bought my current iPhone. This is the first outdoor picture taken exactly a year ago. (This was the first snow of 2015-2016 winter. Coincidentally, first snow of 2016-2017 was today.)
