    This may seem like a dumb question, but I wondered if there was Flickr integration with the Droid X gallery, or whether you need a separate app to upload your photos to Flickr? There are already a bunch of these in the Market.

    I ask because I remember reading/seeing somewhere that Flickr wasn't included as an option for syncing or uploading, just things like Photobucket, Picasa, etc.

    The HTC Incredible I have now does upload to Flickr happily (even though it doesn't offer much flexibility), and it'd be no big deal if the Droid X doesn't do it without an extra app, but I thought I'd ask those who already have the phone just in case.

    I don't think Flickr is included, but you can always use something like upStream.

    Thanks for the info. upStream has always seemed like a good alternative and actually offers way more options than HTC's Flickr sync.

    You can always email from you phone to Flickr.

    Go to the Flickr website. Click your ID at the top left of page to go to your account. Click the Email and Notifications tab at the top. About 3/4 the way down it shows your Flickr upload email.

    Subject line is the title
    Body is the description


    You can email many multimedia sites. I send photos to TwitPic all the time via email because I can send the full 5Mp. MMS has size restrictions. With Twitpic, the subject is the tweet that goes with the link to Twitter.

    Thanks, Doit2it - I always forget about the simple email ability we've had with Flickr for years.
