How to Change My Account Name on Flickr
When you use the Flickr service to store and share your photos, you create a unique screen name. It stretches across the top of your profile page, and gives other Flickr users a way to identify you. If you decide that you no longer want your original account name, create a new one. Flickr does not limit the number of name changes per account -- change your username as many times as you like.
Sign in to Flickr.
Click the down arrow beside "You" in the Flickr menu at the top of the screen.
Click "Your Account" from the drop-down menu. Find the Your Profile section on the Personal Information tab.
Click "View Your Profile Page."
Click the "Edit Your Screen Name" link in the gray box on the right side of the page.
Type a new name into the box beneath "Change Your Screen Name To."
Tips & Warnings
- Tell your Flickr friends that you're changing your account name. By giving them your new name ahead of time, you'll prevent confusion.
- Your Flickr account name cannot have more than 20 characters.
- Once you change your Flickr username, your old handle becomes available to other users.
