I just finished setting up LR3 publishing service so it's a simple few clicks to upload my images to Flickr.

The one part I can't seem to figure out how to do is to upload the images into a specific collection or set from LR. And BTW what is the difference between those 2, sets and collections?

I'm hoping I don't have to upload the images, then create a set and move the images. If it can all be done from the get go, it would be great.

I have exactly the same question. Hopefully someone can answer this for us.

Have you taken a look at Jeffrey Friedl's LR to flickr publishing plugin? http://regex.info …om-goodies/flickr/publish (external link)

That's what I use, as opposed to the stock flickr publishing service that ships with LR3. Jeffrey's plugin has a feature that allows you to create a new "publish collection" in LR and simultaneously choose which set(s) and/or group pool(s) you want that publish collection to publish to in flickr. He has a very comprehensive user manual for the plugin which you can find on the page I liked to above.

A set is a group of individual photos on flickr. A collection is a group of sets. You would typically use collections to further organize your sets. For example, if you had a set that contained images of family, another set that had images of strangers, and another set that had images friends, you could create a single collection called "People" that contained each of these three sets.

thanks.
I learned that when you create the photostream in LR, that IS the set that is created.

I've been using that plugin. I figured out how to successfully get LR to set the Title and Caption for images, but not how to tell it what FlickR Sets or Collections I want it to go to.

Tips/pointers?

D'oh. Sorry about that.

Assume you have the "jf Flickr" plugin installed and working? Can publish to Flickr no worries?

I just had the default "Flickr photostream" at first. What you have to do is right-click on either "jf Flickr" or the "Flickr photostream" and select "Create Flickr Publish Collection". The name is deceptive/incorrect - it should be "Create Flickr Publish Set" because it is actually telling LR what Flickr Sets to publish to, not Flickr Collections. From memory the first time you try it the list of available sets from your Flickr aren't there, so there's a button to click to retrieve them. You'll get a message pop up that you have to close and re-open that dialog box. Do that. Then just create one to match each Flickr Set you have.

That's what I did, anyway.

You can add image Title and other information by including that info in the IPTC panels of LR.

unlike the 3rd party plug in. you have to drag the image(s) into the publishing services area and then export. stinks.

my facebook folder (for exporting) has defaulted to a specific folder that I didn't specify. and I can't change it, anyone know how to change it?

The J Friedl Flickr publish is far more powerful and feature-rich than the stock LR one. Much better to use it. You won't be sorry.
