Basic system requirements for using Flickr on a desktop computer are an Internet connection and the current version of the most common browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Explorer. The most common platforms are Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X. Ample bandwidth is helpful for good performance when browsing in the Flickr environment. Learn more about these requirements in this video.
- [Voiceover] You need two things to have a good experience with Flickr on a desktop computer. The first is good internet connection. Yes, it's an online service, so internet comes in extremely handy when using Flickr. In fact, I would say it's a requirement. The second thing is the latest version of your browser. Yahoo says right here that it supports these browsers, but it also makes it clear that they want the latest versions, and you see that they put that in bold type, so they must be serious about it.
Chances are very good that you use one of these browsers right here. Make sure you have the latest version. Log into your Flickr account, and start having a good time. Or, if you want, hang out with me for a while and I'll show you some ins and outs of Flickr so you can have even a better time. Either way, internet, current version of the web browser, you're ready to go.
