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.
