Photocasting tips

Iphoto IconDerrick rounds up some photocasting resources – “Sharing your images via iPhoto 6 and RSS has advantages over building web pages and clogging up email with bulky attachments. I’ve published an overview of this technique on The Digital Story titled Photocasting with iPhoto 6: RSS Made Easy and a drill down piece on Mac DevCenter, Photocasting: Serve the Right Picture Size. These posts will help you get started serving up your images via RSS right out of iPhoto 6.

So far, I’ve stuck with Flickr – any Makers photocasting?

  1. You can plug any Flickr feed into iPhoto–just hit File:Subscribe to Photocast and paste in the URL of the feed. It works just fine, with titles, descriptions, and permalinks.

    I’m not sure how useful this is. I’ll probably keep all my photo feeds in NetNewsWire, but such a feature could come in handy for non-nerds.

  2. I’ve been ‘photocasting’ for a while now. All the way back before it was a buzzword, and it was just called – “Having a photoblog”.

    One of the things that Apple doesn’t mention is that you can subscribe to non-iPhoto photoblogs (ahem photocasts) in iPhoto ’06.

    I personally use Pixelpost. It’s a great photoblog setup, with web based administration.

    Then I just toss my RSS feed address into iPhoto ’06 and viola!
