I love browsing flickr to discover new ideas and get inspired, and so I decided to start a swap where we could all have fun with this. The first swap was a lot of fun, so I've created it's sequel.

For this swap, you will be assigned to one partner. After reading their profile, head over to flickr to search for at least five photos which you think speak to their interests. Please send links to these photos in an email with a explanation of why you chose those shots. This will be a quick and easy swap, and should be lots of fun.

Please have a 4.5 rating (or be unrated)-- newbies welcome. No 1s or 3s within the past four months. I will be checking profiles prior to assigning partners. Let's have fun and get inspired!

I did the last one of these and got a good rating but must admit I had some trouble getting the flickr images to load into the email, Can you tell me how this is done so I can make sure I am doing it right? Thanks. D.

Hi there-- what I did (and what I believe my swap partner did as well) was just to send the link to the photo, rather than a copy of the photo itself. I know that many of the photos on flickr are protected through copyright, and so there may be some issue with copying them directly into a message.

If you precede each link with a little blurb about why you chose the photo for your partner, or why you like it, etc. it really makes a lovely little lead-up to them following the link. Example:

"I chose this link for you because you mentioned that you liked altered text ATCs featuring red-- this one seems to be pulled out of some horrible romance story, and I thought it was sort of fun: http://www.flickr.com/photos/arianneroxa/4970245662/" or something similar. :)

Thanks for your question!

this sounds like a lot of fun! Wish I could do it.

I'm planning on making this an on-going swap-- maybe you could join in at a later date?

I just finished sending to my partner. This was really fun and very interesting. I would love to join another swap like this again.
