I have been playing around with the online photo site known as Flickr, which is part of Yahoo. I know there are several sites available on which to upload and share photos with friends and family. I do not know which one is the best, or what the differences are between the various sites, but I chose Flickr to play with.
I have begun uploading photographs of trips to Philmont Scout Ranch that I took in the 1980′s. In 1984, I attended the Philmont training center for Scoutmaster Fundamentals. In 1986 and 1989, I attended the ranch to go backpacking with the Boy Scouts from my troop. One nice thing about using a site like Flickr is that I can upload hundreds of photos and it does not take any room on the troop’s website. What I do not like is that people need to leave the troop’s website to view them.
I would be interested to hear what you use for your own troop’s photos. What works well for you, and why did you choose the site you use. Leave a comment or write me an email through this blog. Thanks.
