No, the "main" OSM database has no way to store images. But there are
third-party projects that integrate with OSM, and your group can use

Mapillary: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mapillary

OpenStreetCam: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OpenStreetCam

They have JOSM plugins too it seems, though I don't use them.


P.S. (By the way, you shouldn't use the "website" tag to link to
flickr - that's not what people expect to find in that tag - it's
where you put the website that it associated with the object, e.g. a
business or organisation)

> I am helping a community group make a survey of a small wood area. This will be tagging trees, badger habitats, and even sewers.
> They use a Garmin  GPS with a camera to take pictures and then we use JOSM to extract the location to later add information like species and such and we upload it to OSM.

> I would use the website key:value to just put links to flicker or what ever but we much rather have links to the community group.
> Any suggestions otherwise?
