Paul Bausch has finished rolling his own Flickr substitute and just wrapped up his first round of extra features, including support for EXIF data, syndication, and tagging.
If you’re just joining us, Paul’s been rewriting his personal photoblogging and software from scratch and documenting the process. Here are all the posts in his OTFG (Off the Flickr Grid) series:
- Going Off the Flickr Grid
- OTFG Step 1: Setting the Stage
- OTFG Step 2: Thinking about Photo URLs
- OTFG Step 3: Authenticating the Import Script
- OTFG Step 4: Running the Import Script
- OTFG Step 5: Setting Up Sets
- OTFG Step 6: The Trouble with Comments
- OTFG Step 7: Import Notes
- OTFG Step 8: Resizing Images
- OTFG Step 9: Authentication
- OTFG Step 10: Adding Photos
- OTFG Step 11: Displaying and Editing Photos
- OTFG: Syndication, Exif Data, and Tags
When the Flickr community is all abuzz at the news of six layout options for Pro users, it’s inspiring to see someone designing his own infinitely flexible system from the ground up to suit his own needs. As a die-hard Flickr user, I’m already jealous of Paul’s black background.
