Yesterday I gave Flickr a shot. And then I became a paid subscriber. I’ve heard good things about Flickr before, and thought it looked neat.. but couldn’t really think of a reason to sign up until now. I wanted to make a wedding page with all the photos that Kim and I collected this past month, and the photo album thing I wrote for my personal website wasn’t anything that I was proud enough about to share with family. One really cool thing about using Flickr for our wedding photos is that I can create a group, invite guests from the wedding to it, and then they can upload any pictures that they may have taken to be shared along with mine.
I also put up a video of our wedding day at wedding.runnells.name with the Google Video upload tool. This is the first time that I had uploaded anything larger than 100MB so I had to grab their java uploader. The uploader isn’t pretty.. but it worked.
