it would be wise to think out a logical tag system before starting :-
name date place occupation cemetery letter postcard
to or from

BTW my blog derived Picasa Web Albums - hughw36

and this blog was inspired by Flickr: Photos from sluggan

Frenchay Hospital - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The hospital, situated in the grounds of a Georgian mansion, Frenchay Park, started life as a TB hospital (Frenchay Park Sanatorium) in 1921, when Bristol Corporation acquired the land.

Flickr: Learn More: "Flickr is almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world. Let us show you why!

Flickr is a way to get your photos to the people who matter to you. With Flickr you can:

* Show off your favorite photos to the world
* Blog the photos you take with a cameraphone
* Securely and privately show photos to your friends and family around the world
* ... and much, much more!

Basically, Flickr is what butters the borders between your photos to the people you want to see them. And basic accounts are free!"

FlickrBlog: "One of the best things about Flickr is that our membership is made up of people from so many places and diverse backgrounds. It's important to us that everyone feel comfortable, despite vastly different cultural and personal comfort levels. What I like, you might not, and it's up to the entire community to make this work. So, we've rolled out content filtering which allows you to flag your images as you upload and also set your viewing preferences for what you'd like to see (or not)."

Sign in to Yahoo!: "# Flickr is part of Yahoo!
Now it's even easier to connect with friends and family through your photos. #"

If only I could remember my YAHOO id
I have kept the last email on gogle mail the search results for "your forgotten Yahoo ID are listed below:"

You have a limit of 100 MB per month.
Your upload limit is measured in bandwidth, or "throughput", not actual storage space.

Uploading tools

We provide tools for Mac and Windows to make it easy to upload a batch of photos all at once.

On a free account, Flickr limits the number of photos displayed.

If you have fewer than 200 photos, we display them all. If you have more than 200 photos, only the most recent 200 are displayed.

Your photos are not removed from Flickr, only from the list of your photos. If you blogged a photo and it no longer appears in your list, it will still appear on your blog, and the photo's Flickr page will still work just fine.

Upgrade to a Pro Account for just US$24.95 a year. Here's what you'll get with a Pro Account:

  • Unlimited uploads (10MB per photo)
  • Unlimited storage
