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.

Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service. From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
