Triple Posting Pictures

I have a flickr account for photos located here: My flickr photos. I also have a .Mac account where I post photos which is at: My .Mac Account Homepage. I also have gallery installed on this site which I use to post photos that I want to include in posts. It is located here: Gallery on jimphelps.info

I find myself triple posting pictures. I like to use .Mac because it is quick and dead simple and my friends and family know to look at that site. I like to use flickr for the tagging / folksonomy / social software aspects of the site. You can also automagically include photos from flickr into WordPress (the software used to run this site) though I haven’t configured that yet. And there is gallery, which is the easiest way to get pictures in-line in my posts on this site.

Triple posting pictures sucks. Each site has their own strengths and weaknesses. Any one have thoughts on this?

One thought on “Triple Posting Pictures

  1. Jim, I would agree with your points on Flickr and .Mac. I also have both of those, although for the past year I’ve only been using Flickr. I don’t know how you use 3 accounts; that seems like a lot. I should start using .Mac again, though, since I am paying for it; and like you say, it’s so easy to use. Plus, they have given us more storage space now. Hadn’t heard of Gallery. Will have to check that out; although I post Flickr photo’s into my blog post without difficulty.
