The folks at CommonCraft have created a short “in plain english” video explaining online photo sharing.
Online photo sharing is not only fun, but it also provides a great way to backup your digital memories. This video reviews the benefits of using the online photo sharing site, Flickr.
This is a great way to get started on Project 365 which I blogged about earlier.

A few weeks ago I wrote about photosharing on Flickr.
The Blogging Section of SLA-IT has a post on five uses of Flickr (or any photosharing website) for libraries. Some great ideas for extending the use of photosharing sites.
Flickr also has photo groups you can join.
Take a look at some of these “library” groups for ideas on how you can use a photosharing site in your library:

I love organizing stuff, especially on a rainy Saturday afternoon. 🙂
Flickr is a photosharing site owned by Yahoo.
What can you do on Flickr?
- Upload photos via the web, iPhone, camera phone, or email.
- Share photos with the world or keep them private and share them only with friends and family using guest passes.
- Join groups where you can share photos with those who have similar interests. (I spent hours browsing the depression glass group.)
- Drag-and-drop your photos onto a map to show where you took them, or browse a world map to see where other people have been and what they saw.
- Flickr also has a great search feature. You can search for photos using full text or tags, search for people, groups, or by camera model.
- RSS users can also subscribe to be notified when photos are added to tags, users, or groups.
With 2000+ photos uploaded each minute, it’s easy to see why Flickr is one of the best online photo management and sharing applications.
I love you too Flickr.
