Sharing photos via Flickr is an awesome way to archive and share photos, I’ve been using the service almost since Day 1. The now free service provides a great way to easily upload photos over mobile while it is also to have a backup of your photos hosted in the cloud. Flickr makes it a little tricky to locate your feed, however, it really is there!
I’m a long time Flickr user having joined a few weeks after the service launched several years ago. With thousands of photos archived permanently it gets tough to come up with clever ways to organize and share photos. One of my favorite and most useful tools is a cool Slideshow creation tool called FlickrSlidr http://flickrslidr.com. the app enables users to easily and quickly create a handy slideshow of images (all of them or from a selected set) and share via website or blog. Just another handy tool for the toolbox! Finally, a handy tip.. when archiving photos from your travels on flickr, be sure to organize your photos in logical sets. IF you need to create a map of your photos simply be sure to geotag photos from an entire set, then you’ll be able easily grab a GeoRSS feed of your photoset and use it within tools like google maps and Google Earth to display and share your images using a handy map UI.
