Flickr has a great user interface. It takes some getting used to, but once you find out that you can edit anything by clicking on it — no matter what screen you’re on — the utility increases greatly.
I’m uploading new sets now. This process will probably go on sporadically for a few months until I’m done with all the pictures I took since college — or until I get bored with Flickr.
[EDIT:] Oh yeah — I hit my 20MB monthly upload limit, so I won’t be uploading even a third set until February at the earliest. It’s 25 bucks for a pro account, which gives you 2GB of monthly uploads. There’s no way I’m going to upload that much. But how much will I post? Without knowing, it’s hard to know if the Pro account is worth it.
Also, I’ve been uploading images at their full resolution. I may try resizing them to web-friendly, which I believe is 500 pixels on the wider edge.

Getting a Pro account was quite possibly the greatest decision of my life thus far. I’ve gone way over 20 MB per month (especially uploading at full resolution) and I was really limited by the maxium 3 photo sets with the regular account. I never resize photos anymore because 1) It’s a pain, 2) people like looking at the full size photos, and 3) It gives me a space to backup my full-size photos if anything should happen to my hard drive.
Plus I get the little “pro” icon next to my username, which makes me feel important.
A free account only allows you to have three sets?
But Lewis if anything should happen to your hard drive you could always use your Compaq system restore disk right? That will fix all your problems… right??
Yes a free account only lets you have three sets at a time.
And I basically use Compaq QuickRestore for everything…computer problems, frying eggs, heating bathwater, fueling my truck. It’s an amazingly versatile tool.
