As bizarre as this may sound, I just recently discovered flickr.com. I found it by seeking out a disheartened poster on another newsforum. Some of the other posters had been giving her a rough and rude time because of her frustration with a new digital camera. Well I know ALL about that! Anyway, I found a link in one of her posts to her space on flickr and went a-lookin'. What I found - aside form some great images of her dogs and local scenery - was how dang easy flickr was to use! I htink that very afternoon, I set up my free account and started uploading images.
Flickr is a boon to me, becasue I've plum run out of room on my own web space for posting images, and I didn't really want to buy more disk space right away.
The software for uploading files is dead easy to use; you can even download a system-resident app that will help you find, size and upload your photos. It's like the iTunes of photo gallery apps.
I'll soon be buying a pro account, which is only $25/year and gives me a huge amount of uploading bandwidth, including the ability to store my hi-res images. Possibly a great option for backing up my files, but I'm still looking into that.
Anyway, feel free to drop by and see what I've got on display at my flickr page. Don't forget to say hi!
