Thing #6

I played around with Image Chef a lot! I tried the cartoon maker but could not get it to work- might be my computer at home- it looked like a very cool program. I can see a lot of possibilities for library promotion. I have to confess that I thought it would be funny to make a catalog of Medical Library bling for an April Fool's day in the Library. Oh, and I really loved the trading cards that the Library staff at Carleton did!

Thing #5

I loved the color finder to find photos that have a similar color. I went for lime green and found lots of beautiful photos of foliage. I also really liked the spelling with FLIKR photos and went through lots of names and words with images. I can't remember the name of the application where I made a slideshow of lots of people's photos of hamsters--that was great, too. The badge creator was big fun but my daughter had to help me a little bit.

How would I use this in my library--other than to amuse myself? ;-) I can see doing a nice slideshow of images from my library and/or institution.

Thing 4 Flikr

The photo that I uploaded from Flikr was taken by Cuellar- I neglected to credit the photographer with the photo when I posted it.

I enjoyed the Common Craft video about Flikr and other image services (I was unable to view an earlier recommended Common Craft video.) I took the Flikr tour and really enjoyed the map feature. I looked at photos from Woods Hole, Bihar India, and then from Salamanca. I chose the photo of Salamanca to post because I studied there one summer. Beautiful!

The edible book contest link was hilarious!

I can see countless possibilities for Flikr. For example,my library is part of a large nationwide network. The librarians rarely get to meet or to see the other libraries in the network. It would be great for all of us to photograph our libraries and our staffs to post them on Flikr- it would help us all get a better feel for each other's libraries.
