I am photos junkie.. Photography is one of my hobbies and collecting memories is yet another! As time was going by, it was becoming more and more difficult for me to maintain all the photographs.. It was all getting scattered!! (Some photos at my office machine, some on home desktop whereas some on laptop.. Some uploaded on one picasaweb album and few other on facebook, some on flickr where some on orkut, few on LiveSpaces and couple of them on Geni [related to family]!).. In short, maintaining 20,000+ photographs is not a simple task (I work as digital photo manager for some of my non-geek family members as well!)
I was planning to get everything centralized from quite some time and was looking for options! I considered many options including...
From all above options, none of them were giving me what I wanted.. (none was perfect solution!)
I started checking Paid online services and found few,
From all above, I found Flickr most compelling solution having No.1 place in online photo all around the world with Yahoo network! So, I went ahead with that one.. And till now my experience has been pretty good! The service is really good housing 10,000+ photos for me (I've been able to upload only those many till now! Though, upload still going on..)
Advantages in Flickr that I found most interesting,
Though, nothing is perfect in this world! Here are few things I think flickr needs to add.. (from what I have found as a user!)
From what I have found, Flickr is really a very deep layered service! There is a lot to learn about it for every flickr user!! Now, I know why Yahoo terminated Yahoo! photo gallery and made all users to move to flickr!! Great service!
Yeah, today is 2 year anniversary for this blog!! I still remember the day I started blogging (the day when I got the confirmation from Microsoft!)
Anyways, these 2 years has been pretty good.. learned and shared lot of stuff on this blog.. (at least its been somewhat worthy that Google lists me on top when somebody searches for ‘jigar mehta’..)
I also wanted to declare that I have got my own domain name http://jigar-mehta.com for solely blogging purpose.. Due to WordPress’s nice impression on my mind, I have shifted to wordpress on that site.. Please update your RSS feed to (http://jigar-mehta.com/feed).. [After sometime I will anyways redirect feed from this blog to there.. (Just waiting for Google to like my new site..)]
