Just some photos

I was going through some old photos today and I saw these picture I took of some pretty scenery. The first one is boats going through the Ballard Lock. The second one is sunset at Alki Beach ( is it pathetic that the first thing I thought after I saw it is how the water looks just like CGI !). The third is boats moored at Lake Union. Also I am trying out this Flickr thing that TOchi seems to be using.(Any tips on using this thing?)

Nice pictures! Concerning Twitter, you can put up a widget on your blog to display whatever you posted on Twitter. Unfortunately, Twitter seems to be buggy at the moment since I haven't been able to update my message on it for the past two days...

Ok...forget what I wrote. For some reason I thought you wrote Twitter instead of Flickr -_-

I started using Flickr because blogger photos are now shared with Picasa, which eats away at my 1GB limit. Also, I use Windows Live Writer to write my blog entries (if there is one M$ product, other than XNA, that I'd recommend, it's Live Writer). Picasa doesn't have a nice way to link to their pictures, so I needed to find an alternative.

In Flickr, if you are viewing your own picture, you can click on "All Sizes" at the top, and get HTML code that you can plop down into your blog. I usually select the Medium size, which fits my blog's text column width nicely (better than Blogger's large size).

The uploading tool from Flickr is easy to use. It adds an entry to your right click menu, so you can easily upload and resize your image.

One of the best things I like about Flickr is the communities. I add photos I like to certain rating groups. People will give you feedback on what they like and what they didn't about your photos.

I stick pictures that I like onto Flickr to share. I still use Picasa when I need to do mass uploads. Picasa is just easier for that.
