Flickr Pro Stats

If you have a Flick Pro account, check out the new Flickr stats. You have to activate it first but it only takes 10 minutes or so for it to generate your stats. What surprised me was that my Pink Flowers photo was the most viewed image yesterday. It’s a nice photo but by digging […]

Free postcard from QOOP

QOOP are offering a free postcard “while stocks last” that can be sent anywhere in the world. It prints from your Flickr stream and it’s dead easy to do. What’s the catch? You need to sign up. For any company that’s well worth the minor cost of printing one postcard and mailing it. Still, free […]

Get updates by email from Flickr

I’m not sure how new this Flickr feature is, but it still has the “new” graphic next to it so I’m certain I’m sailing through unchartered waters for at least some of my visitors. You’ve all probably been to the Recent Activity on your Flickr account by now, but tucked in at the bottom of […]

Flickr Blog now hosted to WordPress.com

Just in case you hadn’t noticed, the Flickr Blog is now hosted at WordPress.com! If you’re logged into the site you’ll see the familiar blue admin bar at the top of the page. The latest post has some great shots of the STS-117 Atlantis launch. Better move your feed reader to the new feed!

Bloggable Flickr Slideshow

Here’s a neat way of embedding Flickr’s slideshow feature in your own blog. flickrSLiDR asks you for a set in your Flickr stream and then gives you some html code to paste into your blog post. He’s cheating a small bit though. He’s using Flickr’s own slideshow application and simply passing the right parameters to […]

Kilbrittain 6 miles

Kilbrittain 6 miles A sign points to Kilbrittain in Co. Cork near the beach at Garrettstown. Has it been 2 years already Ryan? My Flickr account expires in February 2008 so I have a bit more time on my hands. It’s been well worth it however!

Explore Cork City in Photos

Flickr has a wonderful mapping system that makes it super easy to view photos from a particular location. Unfortunately Flickr can’t automatically figure out where the photo was taken. That has to be done by the user but it’s as simple as opening the map in your browser and dragging it to the proper location. […]

This old skool Flickr user doesn’t care

From: FlickrHQ Subject: Update for Old Skool members Dear Old Skool Account-Holding Flickr Member, On March 15th we’ll be discontinuing the old email-based Flickr sign in system. From that point on, everyone will have to use a Yahoo! ID to sign in to Flickr. It seems that everyone is up in arms about recent changes […]

Why interestingness just got harder (to game)

It looks like Flickr have changed their algorithm to decide what makes an image interesting. I noticed this a few weeks ago when my number of interesting photos almost halved to 14 photos. What has happened is that Flickr doesn’t count views and comments from certain groups on the site. Why? There are many critique […]

Have you mooed today?

Have you mooed today? I wondered earlier when my moo mini-cards would come but I needn’t have worried. The postman delivered them today! Very cute they look too, I’ll have to order more! If you’re wondering, there’s an easter egg in the Debian apt-get tool. Just try “apt-get moo”! 2006-10-08 – Since I first heard […]

FAlbum, WordPress Flickr Plugin

I decided to get FAlbum working again. You can now view my photos in a more navigable format than this blog allows because it uses Flickr thumbnails. It even shows the tags I use, and that I misspelled irishblogs.. Does anyone know how to mass-delete a tag from lots of photos? Oops.

Making the top ten of Interestingness

Making the top ten of Interestingness The Swan Gang, a photo I posted three days ago, became the 4th most interesting photo on Flickr two days ago. How? Nuggets of Gold Flickr Interestingness uses a secret algorithm to decide what is interesting, but is biased against users who consistently get a lot of attention. Up […]
