What is Flickrock?
Flickrock is a free viewer application that works using the official Flickr sharing API.
We want to provide photographers a suitable frame to showcase their portfolio. We designed Flickrock to enhance the image browsing experience allowing to show and discover photo galleries increasing the visibility of the original Flickr site.
Why Flickrock is an outstanding way to showcase photos?
If you like to display the most recent photos first, Flickrock allows you to sort your photostream by date uploaded or date taken.
How can I see my own photo gallery in Flickrock?
Just add your Flickr user id or alias name after Flickrock.com/ in your browser's address bar… and voilà!
What about copyright and privacy on Flickrock?
All photographs shown on Flickrock might be copyrighted by their respective owners. Flickrock does not host photos, store any user identifiable data, or infringe international copyright laws.
Our application uses an inline linking technology to show the images stored on Flickr's servers and reflects whatever Flickr provides through its sharing API.

Because the photos are not hosted on Flickrock and are instead surfaced to the end user directly from Flickr using their sharing API, please contact Flickr directly for any concerns that you might have about how Flickr makes your photos available through their API.
Does Flickrock display my private photos?

If you authorize Flickrock to access your Flickr, you'll be able to see your own private photos but for everyone else these photos are not visible on Flickrock as they are not public on Flickr.
Flickrock only displays public photos exactly as they are set on Flickr's privacy options.
