Exploring Flickr

I've set up a test account on Flickr, an online photo gallery site. I've been using Gallery for some time now. Gallery is functional, but I'd like to offload the hosting responsibilities onto someone else and see some fresh software in the process.

I'm pretty impressed with Flickr's photo management applications so far. There's a lot of Flash involved, and I'll have to resort to Windows to use the upload utility, but there's good metadata going on here. I'll probably upgrade to the Pro version once I hit my monthly upload cap.

I'm hoping this will motivate me to use my camera more often. I like the visual record, and I think I'm more likely to shoot if I can make sharing a bit easier.
