Flickr and many others

I spent a lot of time this weekend tryign to make sense of all the ways you can process, save, share photos. There was a time when photos simply meant taking the film to the grocery store and add them to a album and you were done.

Today as soon as you connect your camera you are faced with choice - Picasa, windows, Sony, Canon, all vying for attention. To this I added a new dimension _ PhotoShow by Comcast. COmcast lets you hav this cool Photo organizer and editor from SImpleStar for free for being a subscriber. I am impressed. I have all my computer pictures playing on my computer to nice music all day long with just 3 or 4 clicks. Comcast I realized has a lot of great tools now if you are a Cable subscriber. Photoshow costs $39.95 if you have to buy it.




I am a fan of Picasa, but there are other programs that I like Picnik, Jetphoto. I have subscribed to photo storage apps like Slide, RockYou and photobucket.

The Idea is integration being able to upload pictures to one place and then publish them to may places. I like the fact that I can add a picture to this blog using Flickr.

I will review the other software as soon as I can.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
