Zooomr vs Flickr
Nikon D700, ISO 640, 24mm, Tilt Shift, f/4, 1/80

Yesterday Thomas Hawk made a blog post about a Flickr user who was kicked off without warning.  I initially started to cut down on my Flickr usage when a company took one of my photos and used it in their monthly newsletter, posted it online and thought i’d never find out.  When that happened I removed thousands of photos from Flickr and left only ones I didn’t mind sharing there like Photowalks, etc.. Keep in mind that I am currently paid up until 2010 with Flickr for a PRO account and now I won’t be taking advantage of it at all. Thomas Hawk and Kristopher Tate started  Zooomr and I never really took a look until Thomas’s post yesterday.  I decided to give it a try and opened my account.  I only uploaded the photos I have on JPGMag.com currently but will upload some fresh photos next week most likely. Zooomr is missing some things like a Widget/Badge like Flickr has, but I’m sure it will come as the API is growing and Zooomr is getting more popular. Thanks for reading Scott Links

  1. Flickr has a newsletter?? What photo did they use of yours? I never heard about this happening.

  3. Flickr didn't use my photo in a newsletter, a different company did.
