Glow -- I want a free Pro account - Contest


Glow
Originally uploaded by Fotozo.

Wow, this is awesome! Imagine being the photographer of this. I wish I was there, but I'm just happy to be able to see this pic.

I've been a flckr (www.flickr.com) member for a few months now and found it to be the best website available for storing photos. You can store your photos at their original size and you get access to the amazingly exciting tags that are beginning to spring up all over the net.

I actually paid for a Pro account as I have a couple of thousand pics that were taking up too much space on my computer. Now most of them are on the net and they are so much easier to find now too!

Do you want a free Pro Account? Here's what you do: Make a comment at the bottom of this post with a link to your 5 best pictures. If I like 'em I'll give you a free Pro account.

More about Tags
Tags are now a feature in:
google's gmail as a way of easily finding old emails.
del.icio.us lets you find your bookmarks in an easily accessible website so you have access to them from anywhere in the world.
flickr.com lets you store (original sized!) pictures and easily search for them. Mine are accessible at www.flickr.com/photos/seaniz .
