Switching From Flickr to Zooomr
I have decided to switch from Flickr to Zooomr
today. Zooomr is showing so much more
potential then Flickr ever has in my mind.
I’ve been reading some of the comments that people have let on Zooomr
from various sites, and a large percent of them seem to center around how much
it looks like Flickr. Instead of concentrating
on the fact that it looks like Flickr right now, I took a look at the features
that they offer in comparison to Flickr.
The first thing that I found that I love about Zooomr is the
trackbacks. It’s nice to see where the
traffic is coming from. I’m not the best
photographer, but I enjoy being able to see who is linking to what.
Something that I might not use on a regular basis but is steps
above Flickr is what Zooomr calls Zooomrtations. It’s basically audio annotation for your
photos. You can upload MP3 or WAV files
and play them alongside your photos. Genesis
idea and it’s implemented perfectly. Geotagging
seems very cool, though I have not figured out how-to use it yet (Thomas?).
Nonetheless, considering the amount of the time Zooomr has
been around with just a single developer, I’m putting my money on Zooomr
overtaking Flickr and thus I going to transition from Flickr to Zooomr now. I’ve got a free
Pro account from Zooomr since I’m a blogger and I will likely not be paying
Flickr next year to renew my pro account.
Speaking of a single developer, I have to say how impressed
I am with Kristopher Tate. I’m not much
older than Kristopher and I have to congratulate him on his current and future success which is sure to come.
If Zooomr ever needs any help, feel free to drop me a line.
