    I know this was recently discussed but I cannot find the thread. I am wondering if folks would mind just posting one or 2 pics of an item and note in the comment under the pic that more pics are available on their own flickr page. I have fairly slow internet and enjoy seeing the many lovely items people share. However, it takes a long time to load the pictures and getting so many of one item means I just don’t get to see the rest, just too time consuming. Does anyone else have a similar problem?

    Yes, my creaky ole internet seems to be powered by a very lazy hamster, and my cell service is even worse. We did have a thread on it recently. I’ll read about something in the “what are you sewing now” thread and then go look for it, like meleliza’s stunning white fairy tale dress — it seemed like it took an eternity find it. Then, too, it’s so exciting to share, and it feels a bit sad, doesn’t it, when your photo gets quickly buried?

    My general rule of thumb is three pictures: one front view, one back view, and one detail picture (if warranted). I agree that it’s a little sad when the pictures go off the front page so quickly, especially when it’s because someone posts a dozen seemingly identical pictures of their (admittedly cute) kid wearing a new dress.

    Three is good,four if you are showing detail,or mention you have more in your stream.

    I liked the old Flickr better when one had pages,not this tuna blaster thing.

    I’m finding myself super inspired by this Flickr submission (and not just because of the amazing garment, but wow it’s lovely) it’s a collage of three photos in one, something that could easily be made in a free program like pic monkey, and I prefer getting to see all the details at once without having to flick through to the next picture. http://www.flickr.com/photos/52151674@N08/8564086870/in/pool-oliverands/

    That is so clever!

    What is pic monkey?

    I’ve started doing similar and getting the detail and the garment shots into one flickr picture. I use Lightroom for the picture editing.

    Oh, goodness, that’s mine – thank you!

    I was just about to post that that’s what I’ve started doing – I used to just post one or two pics (front and back), but I know that I myself am unsure which pics to comment on when looking at others – I use my phone to both take and upload pics, and I found a collage app – it was a free one, I think, and I’m sure there are better ones out there! (The one I have is just called PhotoCollage)

    Picmonkey.com is a free online program that lets you fix, alter, and play around with photos, and it has a really easy collage option where you pick your outline and pictures and you can be done in 30 seconds! There is also Pixlr.com, but I think Picmonkey is a bit easier to use.

    Ooh I will have to check it out. I love the collage. All the details in one view! 🙂

    That is a super fun idea — draws you in to make you want to see more 🙂

    Great tip! I need to try it too… Don’t forget that the bloggers can always leave the link and if we like the picture we definitely will peek the blog!
