Have you ever tagged someone else’s photo on Flickr? I have, but usually only when I’m in it. I guess anonymous tagging happens more than we realize and so Flickr has now added the ability to see who added the tag: Flickr has quietly made a big change to its tagging system, which from now on will show who added a tag to a photo or video. As Flickr’s Community [ Read More ]

I’ve been looking through a lot of photos on Flickr lately and have noticed that not many people are putting their pictures on the map. Why is this? I love adding my traveling (never pictures taken at home) pictures on the map. This way there is always a location tag on my photos. I also think it’s handy for conference goers. If someone is going to CIL next year, they [ Read More ]
Oh neat!! I was playing with Last.fm today and saw that I could link my photos from concert to the concert page on Last.fm. So I put a machine tag on my pictures and all of the sudden they were linked right to Last.fm: How cool is that? I didn’t know that you could do that!! Technorati Tags: flickr, lastfm
When teaching Flickr, I’ve shown people the neat Flickr Color Picker tool from Krazydad. Today I found a search that goes one step further. In addition to letting you search for just one color, Multicolr Search Labs lets you find pictures which match a color scheme.
No one is going to get me to stop using Flickr – in fact moving off of Flickr would probably be nearly impossible for me with over 5,500 photos in my account. That said, you may be interested in this comparison from DownloadSquad of several photo sharing sites. You may also be interested to know that I’m not alone in loving Flickr – here are the voting results as of [ Read More ]
Since finding Photoshop Express, I haven’t used it … Why not? Because I upload hundreds of photos to Flickr each month and I don’t want to have to upload them to other places too. Now, I have a reason to re-visit Photoshop Express – Flickr support! This from DownloadSquad: At the conference call in March, we asked Adobe about their plans for integrating Photoshop Express with other web services and [ Read More ]
I just found out about Photoshop Express and had to sign right up. You can see my page at http://nengard.photoshop.com. Upload, sort, polish, and store up to 2GB of photos. All for free. Resize, tint, distort, and more — add your mark to all your images. Then show them off on Adobe® Photoshop® Express or your Facebook page. Sounds pretty handy – I’ll have to give it a whirl tomorrow.
Flickr & TechSoup have announced a great program! The Flickr photo sharing service has teamed up with TechSoup Stock to offer premium “pro” accounts to individuals within eligible organizations. The pro accounts are available in packages of either two or five accounts. Organizations must assign these accounts to individuals over 18 years of age, and the accounts will remain assigned to those individuals even if they leave the organization. For [ Read More ]
I taught a class on Thurs on the 2.0 Office. At the end I had some extra time so I showed some fun social tools that you can find professional uses for. One of these tools was Flickr. Well, it turns out (thanks David for pointing it out) that the Library of Congress has come up with a pretty awesome way to use Flickr. The project is beginning somewhat modestly, [ Read More ]
Flickr is going to add editing capabilities using Picnik in the next few months: Currently, you can rotate photos on Flickr, but the editing stops there. When the new tools launch, users will be able to edit photos more extensively using the Picnik Flash based tools [Via TechCrunch]
