There are a number of methods of finding people. Firstly if you know the users
or email address
you can use the find methods.
FoundUser user = flickr.PeopleFindByEmail("firstname.lastname@example.org");
FoundUser user = flickr.PeopleFindByUserName("Sam Judson");
FoundUser user = flickr.UrlsLookupUser(new Uri("http://www.flickr.com/photos/samjudson"));
A quick note about username
, which is also know as screen name
. My username is
, this is not the same as my URL alias
which is samjudson
. Users can change their username therefore you should never rely on this information to stay the same.
Store their user id once you have retrieved it and use that.
