Iâ€™ve been lately noticing more and more people on twitter using URLs with the flic.kr domain as short ULRs for their pictures on flickr so I decided to do some research and find out how they did this.
It turned out that the short URL of every picture is provided by flickr and is included in the HTML code of the flickr page page itself.
To find out the code to your picture here is what you should do
Open the flickr page of your desired picture, e.g. http://www.flickr.com/photos/akhater/3188623049/
N.B.: make sure not to include any /in/set-xxxx in the URL, for e.g. http://www.flickr.com/photos/akhater/3188623049/in/set-72157600048927403/ will not work, you should stop before the in/set-xxxx part

I clearly remember, not so long ago, I was â€œproudâ€ to own a dSLR and not having a live-view. I couldnâ€™t imagine taking picture with camera just looking a screen, I found that almost offending.
The day live-view hit the dSLR market I was really disappointed and was sure I was never going to use that feature.
However, just a few months after I got my Canon 40D (the first cam I ever owned with that feature) I am finding myself using live-view more and more and it is becoming a â€œmust haveâ€ feature for me.
Here are 6 good reasons why I got hooked to live-view
It is time to share all the new blogs/photoblogs that answered my call. Although I did break my own â€œ1 yearâ€ rule by a few months I couldnâ€™t include blogs that have been running since 2006 or 2007 sorry !
So letâ€™s get started
- â€œHow I Took Itâ€ by Richard Hollins (RSS)
Richard share with us how he took and processed some of his favorite shots
- â€œAlltag eines Fotoproduzentenâ€ by R. Kneschke (RSS)
German stock photography blog
- â€œMore About Photography" by Mario Bucolo (RSS)
Mainly interesting photography links that Mario shares with his readers
Having no answers for the question back then I did some research on the issue and found out that it could indeed be done with the LR2/Mogrify plugin.
Here is a highlight about what you will need to use this plugin
I received this by email today and it is simply too good not to share !
Sorry I have no idea who did it so I canâ€™t give proper credits
