Shoalhaven Bushwalkers Web Albums on Flickr
Up until the end of 2016 all Shoalhaven Bushwalkers web albums were stored at Picasa - a Google subsidiary. In an effort to make Picasa users migrate to their preferred option - Google Photos - Google discontinued Picasa but still allowed access to the online albums through a very user-unfriendly archive system where albums are stored randomly. This is totally unacceptable, so the club now uses the much more user-friendly Flickr.
Flickr is an image and video hosting website, acquired by Yahoo in 2005. Users can store and share photos and videos on Flickr. Photos can be stored singly, in albums, or in collections; and they can be made public, private or just shared with friends.
Flickr has free accounts and paid accounts, but the free account is all that is needed. It is recommended for all BBCC members to become Flickr users, after which they can become a member of the BBCC Flickr group, where they can see and comment on the photos of other members, and share their own photos.
