    Can someone explain this "Wall Art" option on Flickr - does this mean that Flickr are selling "your" images and pocketing the cash?

    I wondered the same thing but the option seems only available on your own work - like a printing service
    not sure if there is a further option to sell via flickr once ordered

    you should be able to figure it out...
    It looks pretty clearly like it's just a way to order prints, much like the books are just ways to make photo-books. There are plenty of services that do prints (with frames or whatever mount you want) and others that do books. Looks like Flickr's just trying to cash in on a bit of that market... I don't see any pilfering or anything nefarious - just a touch of capitalism...
