I’m planning to take alot of photos during my Rev 3 Tri trip. It’s kind of a pain to upload photos to my blog, so I looked at some options to get photo albums into my blog more easily. I love Picasa (a Google site)! I even downloaded the Windows App which organized all the pictures on my laptop. It also lets you upload photos to Picasa – and automatically resizes them for web/blog use before uploading, so the uploads are really fast! Once uploaded, you can rotate, organize, etc. It gives you some embed code to put a nifty slideshow into your blog. I’m guessing it will be easy to put the albums into Facebook, too. Very cool.
Anyway, here is a sample slideshow. It’s from my trip to the Outer Banks last summer.
Update: I went strawberry picking today with my daughter and took some pictures. It took me about three minutes to use Picasa’s Windows app to grab the photos off my SD Card, file them on my comptuer, delete them from the SD card, upload them to the web, and embed them here. And they are also automatically put on Facebook, too, under a Picasa tab in my profile. Google Rocks!
