An account on the PSRI Gallery has been a membership benefits for quite some time. A few devout “Gallerians” kept a collection of their photographs there, and even a smaller number updated the albums with any amount of regularity. The software that runs the gallery had a crash a year or so ago and it took some doing to bring it back. Since then, the software has not been updated and it may create a similar problem again. Although it is still operational, the link to the gallery has been removed from the new PSRI site layout in anticipation of this move.
Given that there are world-wide photo sharing sites with far greater exposure for our members and with additional capabilities like discussions, group projects, and the like. One of the most popular photo sharing sites is flickr that offers many enhanced features and I have already created a PSRI group on flickr which is open to dues paying members, just like the PSRI gallery has been.
So, as I announced at the meeting yesterday, the PSRI gallery will be taken down by May 31, 2001. In the mean time, consider getting a flickr account if you do not have one and request to join to the PSRI Group on flickr. To learn more about flickr, look at their quick tour and get acquainted with its features. The move to flickr may be even better news for Photoshop Lightroom users as it has a direct upload feature to your flickr account.
See you on flickr!
