Seamless Integration with Flickr and AirTight Interactive

After a BUSY Spring Semester, it's been real nice the last couple of weeks to not hop on an airplane and go to work!!

This is also the time of year, we usually like to go through our zillions of images and redo our website.. This is an extremely cumbersome task, and Web Designer, I'm not!

In comes Flickr, each and every night this spring, I tried to post here and also mirror the images on Flickr in a set titled Spring 2008

Next up, FlickrEdit a nifty little tool that allows you to make a backup of your Flickr account and save them as JPG's anywhere you choose.

Then using Adobe Lightroom and Airtight's Simpleviewer and Postcard Viewer, I was able to throw together a couple of neat little presentations of images from this past Spring..

Here they are: Simpleviewer and Postcard Viewer (postcard takes a bit to load, better with less than 170 images, I imagine)

Start to Finish: 15 minutes, pretty cool..

Now back to banging my head on a redesign, or keep it the same with all FRESH images from this Spring.. FJ GAYLOR Photography

I'd love to hear your thoughts

It looks great! I really like the postcard viewer. When I had a sort-of website, I used the simpleviewer for slideshows and got a lot of compliments from my friends. I never launched the website though due to time issues, but people love the flash-y interface

JW: Thanks so much.. I hear ya, I've used Simpleviewer and Postcard in the past, but you know, you get caught up and forget about it..

I should have been using it all along on the road, but I didn't have an FTP on my MBP (Go figure) to upload to the server..
