Sharing Photos With Flickr And Our Marching Band
I’ve been using Flickr quite a bit lately. I’ve decided to use it as the core online photo service for distributing our marching band photos to everyone who wants them. Flickr allows you to upload 100 megabytes of photos per month and share them with the world for free. In addition, you can do amazing things with Flickr like share your photos through email or an RSS feed. It’s the ease of use of Flickr that was the deciding factor in choosing them.
Here is an example of an embeded Flickr Stream of our band show at Carnegie Mellon today:
There are a number of great WordPress plugins for Flickr as well. Check out this great article from Mashable about 50+ Media related WordPress plugins.
