Upload to Flickr via Digikam

I know there are a few digiKam users reading this blog. (Rob, this post is for you.) There’s no excuse now for not putting more photos up on your flickr accounts! Look under File > Export > Export to Flickr in the digiKam main window. It’s easy-peasy to upload a single photo or photos in a batch.

Do it!

Here’s a picture I uploaded via the digiKam flickr plugin. It was taken last Saturday night at the Moon in June race in Windsor, Ontario. The boy on the left was 1st place boy in the 200m dash and the one on the right was first in his age group in the 1km race. w00t!


Yahoo and Flickr: ’til death do us part

There’s unrest about the latest development over at Flickr. As of March 15th 2007, old skool members will be required to retire their old flickr logins and use a yahoo id to access their accounts. Yahoo and its supporters call this a ‘merge’, hardcore old skoolers call it abandonment.

Take a look at how some are showing their feelings, via flickr’s tagging mechanism. Nothing like dismantling the master’s house with the master’s tools la Audre Lorde:


I know I’m tempted to drop my account — I hate being forced to join a MegaCorp(TM). I feel like the local bookstore who was put out by Chapters, the local fruit market taken over by Loblaws, the many many many shops forced under by Walmart. Sure, maybe the merge may feel seamless, but when a community is overtaken by something powerful against its will you have to start wondering what is next – it’s a slippery slope… Start removing choices one by one so that people don’t complain too much or too loudly and soon it’s a dictatorship.

Drop your account or create a Yahoo! id: what’ll it be?
