Late to the Flickr party

by Suw on October 20, 2004

I signed up for a Flickr account ages ago – before I'd even moved CnV from Blog-City to Blogware so it must have been early March – but although I've been signed up for months, it's taken me until now to start uploading photos. The impetus was wanting to post photos from last weekend's drinks with Joi, Cory, Tom and a raft of other lovely people, but not really wanting to blog about it all.
Anyway, I have to say that now I've used it, I really like Flickr. It's easy to upload and tag photos, it's fun when people leave comments on them, and because Flickr doesn't require any standard file size or anything, I don't have to resize in Photoshop. I just maybe crop and tweak.
It's also easy to see what other people are uploading and to explore their photo albums. Plus, you have an RSS and an Atom feed, and I think the pro version does even more than the free one. So yes, I'm a convert.
So, finally, I've started to upload my photos from Vienna and BlogTalk2 for your delight and pleasure. Enjoy!

I don't know how much you'e using the mac these days, but if you are, and if you make use of iPhoto, then there's a handly little export to flickr plugin for iPhoto – I use that to get my stuff up there.
I blogged about it here.
Having my latest photo on the front of my blog is also sorta cool 🙂

All my photos are, at the moment, on my PC because there's really not enough room on the mac. When I get some more work in, though, I am gonna get a g5 imac, and then I'll be able to make use of the iPhoto/Flickr plugin. 😉
