posting photos...finally!

I finally bit the bullet and subscribed to a full Flickr account.  Take a look at the photos of the twins that mom Van Dop sent!

I can't believe how easy Flickr is to use!  I can drag and drop photos into my Flickr account or I can forward email sent to me with photo attachments directly into my account (check the Uploading Tools in Flickr).  You can set it up to automatically resize your photos too, so that you're not uploading photos are 1 to 2 MB each.

I highly recommend using Flickr to store your photos.  The only drawback is that Flickr does not support my blogger.  Some blog tools (e.g. Blogger) can be used in conjunction with Flickr.  I'm not sure what the benefit is, but it probably has something to do with the fact that I don't have to add links like the one above in order to see my Flickr photos!

Hi Yvette...what a great way to show off your photos. Loved the ones of Nikita and the ones of you at the wedding were good, too. You are looking GOOOOD, girl, and Brian's OK, also....love, Mom

Check my blog (which has yet to be updated since May). I use flickr and blogger. I usually still modify the posting because flickr puts a bunch of additional stuff. I primarily use flickr to archive my photos at the original resolution. The sharing part is a big bonus. When you start using the tags, it's really neat, but time consuming to set up. For instance, if you tag all the photos with the names of the people in the photos, then if I just want to see photos of myself, I just go to the Tags section and click on my name, and I'd be able to view all photos of me. Pretty neat eh?

Of course, the end of my post no longer applies since I've moved my blog over to blogger.com. Now, I just have to figure out how to link the photos to my Flickr!
