How can I unlink/relink an account in the image library (like Flickr/facebook)? I'm wanted to change the FLickr account i currently have linked and I'm not seeing an option to change that anywhere. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

As it happens, it's pretty easy to change the Facebook account that is linked to your image gallery, and that can be done within Emma. We explain how to edit your social network settings here:

Because Emma's social connector will have permission to get images from your Flickr account until you revoke the link to that application, you'll need to pay a visit to Flickr and look for the Extending Flickr section of your account preferences.

Check out this screenshot for reference:

Once you've revoked the connection, you'll be able to link to another Flickr account within Emma.

It probably wouldn't hurt to log out of Emma while you're changing your Flickr preferences. Clearing your web browser's cache and cookies when you're through there would be a good idea too, since doing this will ensure that you're able to link to a brand new batch of delightful Flickr pics the next time you're in Emma.
