I finally bowed to the inevitable and got a Flickr account. Flickr, for those of you who don't know, is a photograph sharing/storage facility. You can upload your photographs and tag them (assign keywords), and share them with everyone, or selected friends.

Flickr is ok. No more than that, and in many ways it's not even close to Fotopic. It's got a smaller upload facility, and Fotopic allows you to store up to 2,500 pictures which are all available. Flickr (from what I've seen of the freebie account) only allows the latest 200 pictures to show. I also prefer the statistics package that you get with Fotopic. Flickr seems to have 2 main advantages - tagging, which is a good idea and poorly executed (no type of controlled vocabulary for example), and the fact that it's much more widely used, with the ability to add more information and interact with other programs.

I've still not decided which one I'll use as my primary collection of photographs; I suspect that I'll end up using both for a while and seeing how it goes. However, if you've got a Flickr account and want to add me as a friend, feel free!
