Dumb question, but...

... Is there any way to share a PRIVATE Flickr photo here, or with a non-Flickr member? Do you know?

I have a nursing photo of my SIL with the baby that I like a lot and would like to share, but I don't know how to. And she's a non-Flickr member, so I'm not sure if she will be able to see it even if I send her a direct link. I'm guessing not.

You used to be able to but they made some changes and you can't do it the way I did before :(.

Go to view all sizes. I click on the size I want to share, and copy the image address, and give the recipient the web address.

OK, thanks, guys. GiGi also let me know about another site (fotki.com) where you can password-protect certain albums, so I may try that as well.

Hm... I always mark mine as private for only friends and family on Flickr, but still have been able to share them here.

OK, I'll have to try that with another image. I don't want to do it with this one, because my Flickr stream pops up on our home-theatre PC too, and so when people are over they might accidentally see the nursing image... which is tasteful, but if I were the mom I wouldn't want people seeing it, and my SIL is probably the same.

For now, I finally got this one up on Fotki (I was having trouble adding more to the album before!). So just for the share, here's the nursing one in particular I wanted to share. I just think it's very sweet. Smile
