Yes, thanks for the extra details.
Here’s our PNW Station Flickr site: https://www.flickr.com/photos/usfs_pnwrs
Once you have photos in Flickr, here is a free (and ad-free) slideshow tool:
The free version does has some limitations:
· 5 total slideshows;
· 5,000 views per day.
I imagine you could have an album for each location for your Yellow Cedar project.
Something nice about Flickr is also that you can assign location data, so the photos show up on a map.
Here are albums I set up when I worked as “information design specialist” for a NIFA bioenergy project in Tennessee;
I don’t remember if it’s possible to have a “sub collection” within a “collection.”
The other question is the matter of “shipping” the photos to us here at PNWRS.
One option might be to give you direct access to upload photos via the Station Flickr account, but that’s a discussion to have with Yasmeen.
The other option might be to use the PNW Sharepoint site to transfer photos from your location to our location, then have Yasmeen do the actual uploading to Flickr.
Time might be a limiting factor for both options – but as I mentioned on the phone, figuring out a workflow for photo management that works to preserve metadata and encourages station scientist participation is something Cindy has expressed interest in.
This may prove to be a nice case study.
Let me forward Yasmeen some links and CC Cindy and we can see if we can shake anything out.
