So long Coppermine, Hello Flickr!

After years of using Coppermine Photo Gallery to share my photo’s on my site, I’ve decided it was time to move to something easier to share and maintain. I’ve decided to go with Flickr to share my work. What is Flickr? Here’s an excerpt from Wikipedia.

Flickr is a photo sharing website and web services suite, and an online community platform, which is generally considered an early example of a Web 2.0 application.

In addition to being a popular Web site for users to share personal photographs, the service is widely used by bloggers as a photo repository. Its popularity has been fueled by its innovative online community tools that allow photos to be tagged and browsed by folksonomic means.

The Coppermine gallery that I have will still be around on the site, I just won’t be updating it anymore. One of the great things about Flickr is that its’ community is massive, there are so many great photographers on there it’s mind boggling. (Yes I said mind boggling.. So what? 🙂 ) As a source of creative inspiration, and a way to have your work shared and commented on, there is no better site at the moment that I’ve found.

Flickr isn’t perfect, but it’s the best choice for me at this moment. Another Flickr-esque site I considered and recommend (I also have an account on) is Zooomr. It may potentially surpass Flickr at some point, but overall it isn’t quite there yet.

You can find my new gallery here, or click on the flickr link on the sidebar. The new slideshow presentation is great, so please check it out. If you are a flickr user already you’ll be able to comment on my photo’s, if not you can sign up, it’s free.
