SFlickr Turns 2


Our favorite photo-sharing site Flickr turned three earlier this year, and local user group (and social group) SFlickr now celebrates its second birthday this month! It was two years ago that a small group of photographers gathered at Cafe Abir to share their passion for their favorite photo site.

SFlickr’s fearless leader Bringo created commemorative t-shirts (no longer available) for this special occasion. But you can join us at Crossroads Cafe from 7pm on, for chocolate cake, wine, and metaphoto aplenty.

    What’s this “we” white man :) I’m a fan of KodakGallery for its privacy, better printing options/quality, and merch. I bet a lot of our readers also work/use Shutterfly & Snapfish. I’m a fan of *some* flickr stuff- resizing on upload and static links- but not as my only photo sharing option. I actually use it for blogging, and for meeting/talking with other photographers community, more than for sharing photos with family & friends. Yes, I know about flickr’s security – but the interface is so godawful that I can’t get any of my older-generation users in my social circle/family to use it! OK I think too much about this stuff obviously.

    heh, did I get a little “-ist” on ya? ;)

    I suppose I consider Flickr a big friend of metblogs, since most of us use it for blogging pix, plus the sidebar of the local flickr group.

    but yeah, not to recognize that there are other choices out there for photo sharing. reprahzent! :)

    What is the deal with Flickr’s printing? I got a few prints made from my brother’s wedding, and they look godawful. I expected better from Flickr, since they seem to be geared towards artsy-fartsy photographers. Did I just get a dud or something?

    I did a comparison w/ a friend @ snapfish and Kodak actually tells you thatyour blow-up is going to suck before you buy it. I like that. Not sure about Flickr’s printing- most of my prof. photographer firends have their own labs that they go to that do custom printing, they don’t even use kodak’s professional services.

    Anybody try Tabloo yet? I found them through WeddingWire. WeddingWire has a special running with them.
