If It Seems Dreary Around Here...

...My Flickr account expires soon, and I decided not to renew it.
Too many of my friends have left due to recent troubles(see my last post), and it just isn't fun for me anymore.
I am looking for an alternative. So far,ipernity is winning. But it's hard, because the workflow tools for uploading are not there, there are no groups yet, etc.

Anyway, because of that, I decided to delete most of the photos on Flickr that aren't interesting, so that the 200 that Flickr allows in a non-paying account will at least be somewhat interesting. So far I have whittled the over 2000 photos down to 399, so about 50% more have to go. I'll wait a few days for that...

Anyway, many of the photos on my blog have been deleted since they were hosted at Flickr. I'm sorry. But it had to be done. Maybe some day I will replace the photos somewhere else. And some day, maybe, I will feel like sharing new photos again.

A bit of a bummer Allan. Flicker always made me a little nervous even before they started obviously screwing up.

Hope you find something new that you like.

BTW, I'm slowly getting trip photos up on my blog.

You know, Allan, I was just thinking of you and your flickr issues this past week as I found myself in a related predicament.

I'm considering switching to the Google-owned Picasa Web Album since I've got a new camera and am using Picasa as my photo organizer. I don't have the same issues with flickr, more of an ease of use thing.

Also, unlike you, I have nothing near 2000 pix on flickr, but it's still not something I take lightly.

Let us know how it shakes out - ipernity or ???

I'll third the other 2 requests...let us know if you find a better alternative... *sigh* I'm annoyed and saddened by all the flickr news, but can't say I'm that surprised.

Maybe I'll increase my web space and host them myself. but then i'd have to reduce the resolution on most of my photos.
