    I'm sure most of you have heard of Flickr, and many of you are users. While billing itself as, "almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world" may seem over the top, it's actually pretty accurate. Many of you might be aware of the iPhones epic popularity on Flickr, ranking among the top-5 cameras being used on Flickr as reported in stories on CNet and elsewhere.

    Well, the Pre certainly isn't going to knock off the iPhone atop Flickr's chart anytime soon, but I think we should give it a run for its money. If you look at the camera finder, and scroll to the bottom, you'll see the top 5 camera phones on Flickr. We're going to get onto that list.

    Right now, the #5 phone is a Sony Ericsson shooter, with around 300 users uploading photos each day. The Palm Pre, after little more than a week, has had 60-100 users each day for the past 4 or 5 days.

    So you see what we need to do work our way onto that list. With the hundreds of users reading this forum, we can very quickly knock off the 580wi and maybe even take down a couple Blackberry phones which feature ~500 users/day. The Nokia N95 is next at ~900 users each day. After that, we'd be #2 to the iPhone.

    I think we'll get there with time regardless, but it would be a big story if we could move up the chart so quickly. If you're not already a Flickr member, please join it's free. Just upload 1 photo taken with the Palm Pre each day (easiest way is using upload by email). Also feel free to join the Palm Pre group on Flickr and add your photos to that group, too.

    Now take a photo and send it to Flickr each day.

    Uploaded two. Now if Palm would integrate flickr into their photos app so I don't have to email. On a side note, the GPS tag seems to be quite off when I select "add to my map." Anyone else have these problems?

    For any who don't know, once you have a flickr account, go to this page:

    http://www.flickr.com/account/uploadbyemail/

    And get your personal email address to email photos straight to flickr. Make a Flickr contact with that address and it makes uploading *almost* as easy as if there was an integrated flickr uploader like the facebook/photobucket ones.

    Thanks! I said the same thing, but you said it much more effectively.

    Well, you can (kinda) if you tag your photo in the upload process and use something like

    dopiaza.org

    to automatically create sets based on your tags.

    OK, we went from 67 users yesterday to 73 users today. That's good, but we have to do a lot better than that.

    Thanks for contributing, try to convince other Preople to join in, too.

    Just sent 3 pictures of my dogs. Very simple. Been meaning to get setup on Flickr anyway.

    I Posted this on another palm pre forum, which isn't as big, but still gets quite a bit of traffic, I wont post the name of the forums, for obvious reasons.

    I quoted you, and said

    source: jakerome


    then i also quoted you neodorian, and also give the credit to your post to you.

    I have had camera phones for a many years but never really used the camera too much - other than taking photos of my contacts. With this thread, you have appealed to my over developed competitive gene, and this morning I nearly dropped my Pre in the Hudson while taking shots from the top deck of the ferry

    Love the camera on this thing. I post a few pics yesterday in your group. I'll try to keep it up. Can't believe there are only 73 of us...
