Happy Christmas & Thank You!

Before everyone heads off to celebrate Christmas with family and friends I thought I’d take a moment to thank you for the support of The Kamera Club over the last 12 months. Personally it’s been a roller-coaster of a year, but this site and Just-June have been a great distraction in more than one way.
I’d like to thank all of you that have contributed to the site, either with your comments, feedback or information and all the fantastic original images you have provided and the stories behind them. I can’t thank everyone but I must give thanks to Terry, Kevin, Oldiznewagain, PhilD, Roop and of course the the fantastic Gloria Lomax and I look forward to seeing more great content next year.
It just remains for me to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year!

Image Hosting & Flickr

For those that didn’t realize, didn’t know or don’t care I host and store all my photo’s over on Flickr and I’ve been using the site personally since 2007. I only started using Flickr to host my Kamera Club images in May 2013, but have already amassed over 4000 images that have been published. I tried many hosting options before settling on Flickr, but the main reasons were that you got more control over your images on Flickr than other places. I tried Google+ and Google Photo’s, but they have a very strict policy on nudity and their automated system for checking images regularly removed the most obscure shots containing the odd boob, but would leave a full frontal shot alone!

With Flickr you have a lot more control and as long as you have your content and privacy settings correct, you can pretty much publish anything! I also find you have a lot more control over your images, who can see them, what size and what people can do with the images.

What I didn’t realize was how many sets I’d amassed in such a short space of time, 219! Thankfully your given a Terabyte of storage and I’ve not even touched 1% of it yet. I’m also a control freak, so all my sets are organised and in order, as you can see below 🙂

So, if you have a Flickr account feel free to head over to my account and take a look and follow it if you want. you’ll get to see most of my images, well those I’ve published and allow publicly anyway!

The only down side to Flickr is video hosting as they don’t allow very long clips, but I have a solution for that thankfully, so it’s not a deal breaker.

Anyone have any other suggestions?
