Memos from December 2011


Flickr, Flick and Share

I’ve been a long-time Flickr user and fan ever since get­ting into Pho­tog­ra­phy. It’s been more than 5-years since I’ve joined, and to this day, I still con­sider it (hands down) the best photo shar­ing site out there. It keeps it sim­ple and just makes it easy for peo­ple to do what they want to do, share their pho­tos with friends and fam­ily.

With the Hol­i­days upon us, we are see­ing loved ones that we don’t often see as dis­tance is usu­ally a fac­tor. But one thing we do to recall and make those mem­o­ries last are take pho­tos and/or videos. I had my cam­era and just snapped away dur­ing our recent fam­ily gath­er­ing. I then uploaded the set/album to Flickr to share it.

One thing that is lim­it­ing is that not all of my relatives/friends/family are on Flickr. Even then, you are only lim­ited to down­load on a per photo basis (at the moment?). As to find a solu­tion to have my aunt down­load the entire set/album, as she wanted to get them printed at Costco, I dug around and for­tu­nately found Flick and Share.

With this project, I recall using Blue­print CSS for the first time in a pro­duc­tion stage. But that’s for another story, for another time.
