    Tags: photo management   


    If we are very clever and organised and have a flickr group photo thing I can put a ‘widget’ in the side bar here which will link to it. Then everyone who wants to add / share photos can put them in and they will be all in one place. And anyone who wants to see them has an easy way to find them. If someone sets one up and then circulates the url and lets me have it I will put it on here. The other way is to upload photos into posts, but some people have had problems with that so flickr might be easier….? 🙂

    What do you think? I can’t do much till next week now as the computer has gone to the machine shop

      Thank you all for a great weekend – I came home stuffed with bread and the satisfaction of good bakin’! Will get my photos organised (ie delete most of the swallows!) and maybe someone will tell me how to get them into the flickr group – or do we all have to have an account?
      I will sort out the griddle recipe, you can all do it in the privacy of your own homes!
      Hae a good week all, maybe a bit less bread?! and THANKS!!

      I have used the bakingweekend flickr page to start a public group DDD2010 which anyone with a flickr account can join.

      I you don’t allready have a flickr page you will need to sign up and follow their instructions on how to upload photos.

        Not quite sure if I have done this right, I have put the RSS feed code for your photostream into the flickr link on the sidebar. Is that what you mean, if not could you email me a link to the public group you started, I searched for DDD2010 and came up with a cycling group? x Joanna

          If you look at the bakingweekend flickr profile DDD2010 should be shown as a group we are a member of. I have just sent you an invite to it, it is a public group so anybody can join. This is all new to me so it will be interesting to see if it works.

          I have changed the RSS to that of the DDD2010 group, if anyone has pics of the weekend on flickr they can join the group then add pics to the group pool.

    All aboard now (I think) 

    I have added Stig and Choc and BigG as ‘authors’ and as if by magic their gravatars are in the bakers side panel which I have made a bit bigger. Stig, Choc and BigG you can now write new posts, upload pics, log in at the side, and you can do it from the dashboard…. I am not sure if there is anyone else to join up? comment away on any other post.  Let chaos reign – Looking forward to seeing you all,

      Zeb is now the official DDD web-mistress. Well done.
      Joes still cutting bricks for his oven, and tea (you may know this meal as dinner, although as far as im aware ‘dinner ladies’ only worked at lunch time) is nearly ready (unlike said oven). Sorry about the over use of parentheses, but theres been a (very) good crop this year. Ooops, I did it again.
      ps. Its been a very long day, please excuse me. 🙂

      Its funny what life brings.

    PS If you want to have a little picture … 

    PS If you want to have a little picture thingy instead of a random pattern, then you need to get a ‘gravatar’, who thinks these names up? Here’s the site http://en.gravatar.com/
