Flickr Now Supporting Once-Ostracized Illustrators, Screenshot Uploaders

Flickr's wavering policies in the past regarding using Flickr as an illustration portfolio or to show off screen captures of software has been to restrict user accounts and block their images from being included in search functions. When some users responded negatively to these moves, others stepped in and aggressively defended Flickr's status as "for photos only." Flickr fumbled around for a while, sending some pretty mixed signals.

The "photo-sharing" site has finally come around to accept that new user bases are not a bad thing, and is now supporting search filtering for both of those robust types of content, which people have been putting up for years.

Good for Flickr.
