I've had a Flickr account for a few years, but I really haven't uploaded much there (just the pics I use for our business blog). Tell me about how you use Flickr! What's the best way to use Flickr to share and/or backup pics? Should I use Flickr Uploadr if I want it to play nicely with Lightroom? Does it handle RAW files? How do you manage privacy settings (upload all to the same folder, then manually change the privacy settings for photos you want to make public?)? Lots of questions... want to do all my research before investing the time in learning to use it Thanks in advance!!

Good questions! I only upload JPEGs to Flickr to save on space. Yes, 1TB is a ton of space, but I still like to maximize my allotted space.

I started using my Flickr account more after I had to give up my SmugMug account. I like the increased storage, but I'll admit I don't utilize it. I have uploaded my digi-scrap pages more for sharing than anything and since I've been enjoying the Tinyplanet filter from an app on my phone, I'll upload directly from my phone which is fairly simple. Not 100% how to get the new file uploaded to my actual Tinyplanet album, so I will eventually remember to go to my account from my desktop and then move the photos then.
Anything I upload I have no privacy issues with, so I assume they are all public. I follow a few people and have it set up on my phone so that I get updates when they post new photos, it shows up in my HTC Sense feed.
While I'm sure there is more I can do with it, I like it and find what I do to be very easy to use.

I use Flickr for all my digi pages, and extended family photos.
What I did:
I set my settings to the most private. That way, if I forget it's too restricted rather than not restricted enough.
When I upload I stick the layout in a folder by year. At that point I can also change the privacy settings on multiple pages at once. I've never used the Lightroom function, I just open up Flickr and upload away. I did use the Flickr sharing in PSE14 and that worked fine.
