As you may have seen over the last few days, I've been using Zooomr to host my pictures. Blogger's handling of image files just plain stinks, and I didn't want to pay for a Flickr Pro account. Thankfully, Zooomr has come to the rescue.
What is Zooomr? As a project that started on a late October 2005, Zooomr was born to explore the information inside of photos. It aims to be not merely another photo sharing service, but something that helps connect people together through photos. Using Zooomr, you can do the following:
- Show your favorite photos to the entire world in anyone's language
- Actually put your photos on the map!
- Add sound to your photos
- Define who's inside a photo and maybe become famous
- Add notes/portals to your pictures
- Feel at ease when sharing private photos with friends and family members
Zooomr has been getting a lot of play in the blogosphere due to their offer of free Pro accounts to people who are bloggers. By hosting a picture on Zooomr, and incorporating it into a blog post, you can get a free Pro account too. Having a Pro account allows you to upload 2.5 gigs of photos every month. If you want, feel free to look at my photostream on Zooomr.
If you are looking for a place to host your pictures, in full quality, take a look at Zooomr. Coupled with the free Pro account offer for bloggers, it might just be what you are looking for.
