Finally took some time last night to try out Flickr. They have a pretty limited free version but I decided to just get the Pro version. This really is impressive an impressive website. It will take some time to get my images uploaded, but, it is MUCH easier than using the Coppermine Photo Gallery software I was using before — primarily because they have nice upload and management tools. I think I will probably leave all of my images public, unless I decide otherwise. I have about 4 gigabytes of images to upload, so, it will take a couple months to do it (which it would have anyway). I also want to make sure to tag them as I upload them. Title them as well. If you have a digital camera you should check this site out. I have looked around and not found anything comparable.

For local (on your PC) image albums and manipulation I still recommend Picasa from Google. The only problem I have run into is that when you modify a picture in Picasa it doesn’t change the source image. This normally is a good thing, but, if you want to move your pictures to Flickr you either need to do an email workaround (you can post pictures to Flickr via email) or you have to “Save” the image using Picasa or you have to Export the folder of images. There must be an easier way. If I think of one I will let you know.

Going to see Cirque du Soleil Varekai this weekend. Should be lots of fun!

That’s all for now.
