Flickr fun  
I've been spending a lot of time on Flickr again. I'm uploading a bunch of stuff. Right now I'm working on my trip to Miami in 2006, Day old Chick pics, and current stuff I may be taking. Those of you that have been here that long have already seen those. I like how I have nearly everything organized now into sets and collections. Chris has been using his too uploading older pics. I figured out how to arrange which contacts appear on your front page. If your favorite ones have dropped off the page because you've added too many new ones, just go into the contacts page and edit their status. Like add then remove them as friend but not as a contact so you don't lose them. It sends them back to the top. I did that with someone and was wondering why she was back on top. When I realized what had happened I went through and fixed it my way. I think it displays 12 so put your 12 favorites, if you have that many, in backwards order to edit and they should show up fine.

I also found out you can arrange pics in sets. There are limited choices but one is chronological order which is my fave. I try to keep things in order chronologically. The only bad thing is if you edit something in photoshop it will change the date and will become newer even if it isn't. That's a bit annoying when trying to keep things in order based on the exif data.

Two more sprouts came up today of my black albomarginata and my first one is doing very well. I hope lots more will sprout and that I'll get a pair. A male and a female. That's the whole point of growing these things from seed so I can keep breeding them.

Tomorrow is a day off. We're going to go to the botanical garden. I'm really looking forward to that.

One of these days I'm going to get my Flickr going. I may ask you for help.

Have a great day at the botanical gardens. Can't wait to see the pictures you take!

I need to write up those tutorials for you like I said I would. I've actually been thinking about it alot. Your pics would be awesome on there. Flickr is difficult to get used to. Only a few days ago I found out there was a recent activity list and I can check for responses that way instead of hunting down if someone replied. Wish I had known that sooner.

It will be fun. I know they have a carnivorus plant area so I'm really looking forward to seeing that.

Glad Flickr is useful! I have about 4 friends on there I think lol!
Its annoying it messes up the order when you edit them and resave them though.
Have fun at the botanical gardens today!

It's been a lot of fun. I think it's the best of the photo places as far as chatting with others and exchanging ideas. But photobucket is much better for a quick upload and getting the url to use here on LJ.
I will. I'm really looking forward to that.

That annoys me too, how the date is changed on the pic if I edit it or move it somewhere. Not that I use Flikr, but it happens on my 'puter.

Thanks. I will.
Yeah, it happens in folders too. I have most of my folders set to "sort by date/modified". The rest I have in alphabetical order.

I probably won't put too much up on Flickr because of the limits, but it's good place to put pictures for now.

Yeah the limits are really annoying for free accounts. Once you get over 200 they disappear, but are still there if you have the url. I think the way to get around that is to make sets and divide everything up that way they'll always show. I never tried that but I think it would work.
