Two new tools

Here are two new tools that utilize digital imagery. While not closely associated with the process of digital storytelling, I like them alot.

The first is Flickr Album, another application of Flickr.com, and it makes use of either a members user name or a tag to create an online album. The album can display up to 100 images-the user then actually grabs the curled edge of the page and turns the page by flipping it with the mouse. Very cool. Try my username, DJ1.

The second is Woophy.com, which is another photosharing site but displays a world map of photos. Drag a square around a portion of the globe to enlarge that area and zoom in to see it in greater detail. Click on a square to see the image. Clicking on any of the images in the thumbnail column enlarges the image. I think this would be a great tool to use in a geography class...

Check out my photo of a staircase in New Orleans and Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, Oregon.
