The Life of an Image

Roughly 1998, cobbled-together PC and Mac Performa While drinking my coffee this morning, I decided to take a look at Flickr. I’m pretty sure I’ve ranted about my love/hate relationship with Flickr over the years, so I won’t rehash it now. I was looking at stats, and this image is my second all-time most popular...

The new version of the Flickr app is pure awesome, though. Even the login screen is beautiful. Once you login, you're... Continue Reading →

Flickr and Pinterest

There has been some controversy surrounding the use of Flickr photos on Pinterest. Through this partnership, proper attribution will now be made when pinning from Flickr. Apparently, it's retro-active, as well. So previously pinned photos will receive proper attribution. Personally, I think Pinterest is a great way to gain exposure. It's "word-of-mouth" for the 21st... Continue Reading →

Flickr is making changes in 2012

via Flickr says it's making some changes in 2012. Hopefully, it will be enough to save them from Yahoo's sinking ship. They're getting rid of some features... Most of which I've never used. One I've never heard of. Are you going to miss any of 'em? There's been talk about Google+ being a better... Continue Reading →
