Using Flickr with Filestack

How can you use Flickr with Filestack?

This is all you need to get started. A simple pick.

Sample Code
filepicker.pick( { mimetypes: ['*/*'], container: 'modal', services:['FLICKR'], }, function(Blob){ console.log(replaceHtmlChars(JSON.stringify(Blob))); }, function(FPError){ // console.log(FPError.toString()); - print errors to console } );
