Flickr – institutional photo database

Flickr

Flickr is the best online photo management and sharing application. It is simple to use and relatively inexpensive. A Flickr-Pro account is only $24.95 per year. The benefits are incredible:

  • Unlimited photo uploads (20MB per photo)
  • Unlimited video uploads (90 seconds max)
  • Unlimited storage
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Unlimited photosets
  • Archiving of high-resolution original images
  • Tagging, searching, browsing and sharing
  • View count and referrer statistics
  • Compartmentalized access

Brad J. Ward has a most-excellent post up on the potential for institutions of higher education to use Flickr as an institutional photo database.
