Fun Tool From FLICKR
FLICKR.com is a FREE site and resource to manipulate and store digital images and videos.
Once you upload a photo you can obtain a url for the image, re-size it, share presentations online with an embed code or link. Take screen shots and create links or re-size and edit to use as a jpeg if you don't have a tool like snagit.
You can create groups for your customers or clients to upload their photos and establish a fun online community sharing pictures. Think about the possibilities for your local communities. Set up groups within your personally branded account for schools, for events or a specific subdivision and it's activities or amenities.
I created a group called "Bearizona" in my Flickr Cosmic Cow Pie account to share with anyone who has come to Williams, Arizona to be able to upload their wildlife park pictures and videos from Bearizona.
Bearizona opened May 22, 2010 in Williams, Arizona. I took pictures and created a "set" with my FLICKR account which I can now embed the slide show in my blog in a very short time. Please leave some comments if you like the pictures or the idea.
I am going to create a group for our new community dog rescue center in Williams, AZ. "SaveMTR" Save Meant To Rescue and the organizers will upload pictures of the dogs available for rescue. The dog rescue organizer does not have a computer so this can help at least get the pictures of the dogs out to the public with a place for a description of each dog.
I would like to invite you to practice with me engaging in the Cosmic Cow Pie group sharing some of your favorite photos. Check out my Spam photos at Burger King in Maui and a green gecko along with a Cow Pie rock in Sedona, Arizona. Social media is about mixing things up with people from all over the world. Come give it a try then create your own groups and share the fun.
Join the group and post some interesting pictures pictures.... Let's have some fun with photos!
