Photo Session From Flickr, Browse Photos With Your Friends

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 04:00 AM

http://mashable.com/2011/09/28/flic...-photo-sharing/

"Flickr has introduced Photo Session, a new feature that lets a group of people browse photos together from multiple devices - both mobile and desktop."

This seems pretty slick, being able to have up to 10 people viewing and chatting about your photos in real time, and even works while you are uploading photos to the set. This will work on iPhone, iPad and the desktop, so pretty much anywhere you are you can use it. Yahoo! should do more stuff like this with Flickr, they may have their niche!

iPhone 4 is the Most Popular Camera on Flickr

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 10:00 AM

"If you're shooting a photo and uploading it to Flickr, chances are that it's on an iPhone 4, as Apple's iconic smartphone has officially surpassed the Nikon D90 as the most popular camera on Yahoo's photo sharing site."

Besting the Nikon D90 in terms of quantity of course, not quality, the iPhone 4 is now the most popular camera for uploading photos to Flickr. Interesting to note that there isn't one Windows or Android phone in the list of the top five, so I guess either those owners don't use Flickr or they prefer a different camera, what are your thoughts?

Flickr Deletes Wrong User Account

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "The Competition" @ 08:17 AM

http://www.businessinsider.com/flic...s-photos-2011-2

"This is awful. Flickr accidentally deleted the entire account of one its users -- a paying, Pro user no less --, removing 4 years worth of pictures. What happened is that the user reported another user for lifting his copyrighted photos and Flickr accidentally deleted his account instead of the infringing user's."

Ouch. I'm not so sure free service would appease me, even if it was for four years. The user isn't too happy obviously, and has a blog post about the whole experience and what this is going to entail for him in the next few weeks (or months) as he tries to rebuild his library and links. From the sounds of it, he does have them backed up, although Flickr had no backup in place. I don't think I would expect it on a free account, but if I was paying for the Pro level account I think I would expect some sort of backup of my photos. What are your thoughts?

Google Reader and Flickr Support Added to Flipboard

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 11:00 AM

"Flipboard, the iPad app of the year, was updated tonight with several new features. Flickr support was added to the personal, news-based magazine in addition to support for Google Reader."

I may end up using the free iPad app Flipboard more now that they have Google Reader capability. You can also browse friend's Flickr stream and the best part of all is that you can now update your status to Twitter, Facebook and Google accounts simultaneously.

iPhone Most Popular Camera Phone on Flickr

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone & iPod Touch" @ 10:00 AM

http://cultofmac.com/iphone-popular...kr-charts/12681

"Apple's iPhone has recently become the most popular camera on Flickr, one of the Internet's most well-regarded photo sharing social media sites. Expressed in "percent of members" terms, the iPhone has lately bested two models of Canon's EOS Digital Rebel, of which the XTi had long been the clear favorite choice of Flickr members."

This actually has been amended so the iPhone is now behind the Canon Digital Rebel XTi, making it the 2nd most popular camera used on Flickr. However among camera phones, the iPhone clearly is the leader as the graph above shows as a percentage of Flickr members. Wonder what the stats are over on You Tube among camera phones?

Apple's 5th Avenue Store Among Most Photographed Landmarks

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 12:00 PM

http://www.ifoapplestore.com/db/200...-to-photo-fame/

"Among the 175 most-photographed landmarks on earth, Apple's Fifth Avenue (NYC) store has risen to fame the quickest, beating out Wrigley Field (Chicago), Buckingham Palace (London) and even the White House (DC). According to researchers from Cornell University who studied over 33.3 million Flickr photographs, the iconic glass cube of the Fifth Avenue store was the fifth most-photographed landmark in New York City, which is the world's most-photographed city"

Interesting study but it is a pretty dry read. But if you are interested, they have published the results of the study as well as the photo mapping they used to complete the study. They used something called "mean-shift clustering" to get the top seven most photographed landmarks on Earth, as well as the top seven in each of the top 25 metropolitan areas. I don't exactly know what "mean-shift clustering" is but they fully explain it in the report they presented at a Web conference in Spain last week. New York city was the most distinctive tag they found, and the top five landmarks worldwide were, in order, Eiffel Tower, Trafalgar Square, Tate Modern art museum in London, Big Ben and Notre Dame. In case you are curious, the Apple Store on 5th Avenue was number 5 on the list under New York City landmarks. The top 4 were, in order, Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Plaza and Grand Central Station.
