Switch your Flickr login from Yahoo! ID to Google or Facebook

Flickr/Yahoo just added Facebook Connect and Google OAuth support to their sign-in, this is great, coz now I no longer needs a Yahoo! account to use Flickr. (I assume you all loathe Yahoo! as much as I do right?)

Here’s how to change your Flickr account from your Yahoo! ID to your Google or Facebook account:

  • sign into Flickr with your Yahoo! account if you’re not already logged in
  • go to http://www.flickr.com/account/transfer/
  • hit “use existing Yahoo! ID”:
  • Flickr: Transfer your account

  • Hit “sign in as a different user”:
  • Dock-26

  • Choose Google, or Facebook (if you must):
  • Sign in to Yahoo!

  • signin and authorize your Google or Google Apps email and password, or if you chose Facebook, you probably will see a familiar oauth authorization window requesting some permissions
  • Click the “Okay, do it” button:
