Mobile phones have become the tool of this age. This is for good reason because a mobile phone is simply a computer that fits into your pocket. Besides being a computer, your mobile phone is a phone, a camera, a GPS system and a compass. Your mobile phone has a good camera these days which makes it the most convenient camera to take with you everywhere. Mobile phones have made photo taking so easy that we keep creating lots of pictures and videos every month. And I mean lots and lots. However, with quantity comes the problem of organizing them. Organizing photos on your phone is very difficult. Find out why.
Flickr and Facebook are great ways to make your pictures more “visible” on the internet. This way is not very direct but it can be very beneficial. Flickr is the largest photo sharing website (Facebook is catching up quickly) in the world and you can take advantage of its popularity if you do a few things right.
It’s only a matter of time until image geotagging will become the one thing that every photographer will have to do for their pictures. This type of image metadata is becoming very useful and desired. Flickr, of course, is the master keeper of over 100 million geotagged images. This means that they can provide a tot of geographically linked images and they can also create all kinds of interesting relationships between images and photographers.
