Ponteland Photographic Society

Net Night

Internet presentationsOur meeting on Monday covered ways of sharing your pictures using the Internet and the cloud based services available online. Phil brought us up to date with the Guru Shots project and how members can add their pictures to the challenge. He also let us know that Fara has moved into the top Guru ranking over the summer! Quite an achievement – well done! Then we had a chance to look around our own website and the facilities it offers to members with a rather brave attempt at a live photo gallery upload which struggled with the slow connection in the hall. Finally Tony ran through the options available on Flickr, the website we use to host our full set of competition entries. It can do much more, of course, and Tony explained some of the group social elements and how the site can be a source of new ideas and support.
