Roast Beef- Dobler Style
monstersocks and I have been home for a while now. We got in around 7-ish, then did some unpacking, had dinner (Davanni's apparently has a delivery charge now so we were a little over-generous with the tip, I think we'll live) and then I worked on labeling the 213 pictures I took at CONvergence 2005. (It looks like sxoidmal already got his pictures from CONvergence online and labeled and he's been joined by Erin, Ed, Trina, Zhac, Nick and Molly. Even people I don't know like rez. There's also a flickr group of CONvergence pictures.) Now that the labeling is done I just have to do some editing to fix minor problems (damn red eye) and separate the weak from the strong.

Here's a whole big list of CONvergence pictures:

Flickr makes it easy! I don't have to code another damned page! I do still go through and do minimal color/light balancing though.

I have a flickr account but I haven't done much with it yet. I also have Buzznet, TextAmerica and Yafro accounts. I keep meaning to spend some time experimenting with them and comparing them for cellphone picture use. I guess I also have my lj scrapbook account. I ended up using that for posting pictures during CONvergence since I could combine the picture post with an lj post easily from my phone.

I really like some aspects of flickr but I'm a bit too much of a control freak to put all my pictures on something like that. I like labeling them before they're uploaded and having them in an HTML format so that I can put them anywhere I want without worrying too much about it. The tagging and grouping is pretty cool so I can see all sorts of people's CONvergence pictures or whatever. A flickr pro account would be a little more tempting if I hadn't already paid for hosting at my own domain.

The main delay for me now is filtering to get rid of bad pictures, editing to fix pictures that aren't as good as they could be and labeling. Once all of that is done exporting them from iPhoto is pretty trivial. I just get really finicky and spend a lot of time tweaking the labels and trying to decide which pictures are good enough and which aren't.
