Not long ago my friend and fellow blogger Kevin managed to send me a link to sign up for Xoopit which is in private beta. I quickly signed up (because honestly who can resist a private beta?) even though I wasn't sure how useful the service would be and I have to say that initially I wasn't all that impressed. I mean it did crawl my gmail account and organize all my photos, videos and attachments into an easy to use interface but honestly with gmail's search function being what it is it wasn't all that necessary. BUT...as I kept getting photo's I noticed that it was not only pulling in attached photo's from my email but also going out and getting photo's from sites like shutterfly, flickr and snapfish and downloading them into an easy to view slideshow format and then organizing them by sender. This has proven to be their most useful feature as far as I'm concerned as it saves me the unbelievable hassle of going to those sites, logging in and using their often unsatisfying slideshows. I'm not sure it works with all photo sites but I'll update further once I know more...Just thought I would share my experience...Oh, by the way, if you want an invite let me know, I have 5 to give out...

That's right...video on Flickr...whats the big deal you ask? Well, most of us who use flickr love it because it's an easy medium to share from and a good way to show off your photo's...BUT...we've always had to use another service to share video's...no more...We can all now share all our fun in one place! Yes, I hear you saying "But we can only upload a 90 second video..." OK, but you also know that there's more to come from the Flickr-ites...there always is! Regardless, I'm psyched and look for some video's soon...

Hi...I thought maybe I'd start posting whenever I add public photo's to Flickr...Hope you all enjoy!
These are from a couple of trips I took around Walton lake recently and I took a little time to do some photoshop work on them...
Oh and one more thing. To really see the photo's how they were intended by the photographer, I highly recommend using PicLens.
It appears that it is now available for every major browser (YES, even IE!!!) and is simply put an AMAZING improvement over any other way I have seen to view photos on the web.
