Flickr Content Filters Tutorial

To view the above restricted picture on my flickr stream, check your safe search settings.

A couple of days ago I discovered that my account on flickr was flagged, therefore marked as restricted. That basically means my account would be inaccessible to people that did not have a flickr account, were not over 18 and also resided in certain countries such as Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Korea and more I’m not sure of. I’m usually very careful about setting the correct safety levels on my pictures, but I guess I had missed something.

So after going through all my pictures, I sent it over to flickr staff to review and the next morning my account was marked safe once again. 🙂 I’m really happy with flickr’s response and I’ve decided I am going to be extra careful about marking my nude photography as restricted. I will also include some lingerie and swimwear shots as such to be on the safe side.

Since I’m planning to do all of that, I figured I’d do a quick tutorial to show you guys how to setup your flickr account so you are able to see my restricted pictures on my flickr, especially from my bare series. I love it when you guys leave me comments and fav my pictures, therefore I do want to make sure y’all can see them, so here goes!

Flickr Search Filters

First, create a flickr account and then make sure you are over the age of 18 before you continue! 😛 Now, you want to go into your safe search settings. You can do that by clicking on this link or by going to: > Privacy & Permissions tab > then “edit” the Search settings at the bottom below “Content Filters”

After clicking, you will see something similar as the screenshot above. ^^ You want to make sure you have turned Safe Search “off” and under “Content Type” and “Media Typecheckmark everything.

One thing I noticed after I had my account reviewed by flickr staff, I had my pictures set to photos and the staff had changed them all to screenshots. I am not going to change that since that’s what they set it at, so it’s really important you guys enable all the content types or you may not be able to see all the images in my stream and the streams of other SLers.

Once you’ve gone through all these steps, you should be able to see all the public content on my flickr stream. If not, then you probably reside in one of the countries where restricted content is not accessible, but you should be able to still view the safe content on my stream. I hope y’all do this and if you have any questions, feel free to email me or check out the flickr help section about content filters.
