Subject: BS: Google allows unlimited photo uploads

10 minutes ago, I heard about this... google blog

5 minutes ago I made an album...on The Meaning of Life. that I posted many years ago on MyOpera.

It identified me as a FaceBook member and sent me to the upload page, where it was simple to do everything.
I assume it all depends on this and that and some will have reservations... but I really wanted a new place for pics.

Oh.. I had just recently seen this http://www.tinyupload.com/ for smaller, temporary stuff.

My local TV newscast just made this announcement, commenting that Apple allows just 5 gig. At this point I'm uploading my phone photos to a couple of places for backup, Dropbox and Google Drive, but all of my computer photos are just there. It is something to consider. Of course you're giving Google the chance to play with your images and "sort" them for you.

looks good, but ...

as Stilly says, they sort them & I like my pics they way they are after I've sorted them.

I still haven't done anything with the pics I had on MyOpera.

Google being Google, you may want to check terms and conditions. This wouldn't be the first site where uploading photos means you relinquish your copyright/ownership of the images and allow the site-owner to sell the images for use by third parties.

You keep the copyright, but When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide licence to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes that we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content... (From here.)

Probably similar to many other such free services.

Thanks for the link, Bill. This could come in handy.

What sort of idiot would voluntarily relinquish all of this to Google and every other Tom, Dick, and Harry that Google plays with?

Stay tuned for a thread whining about what Google has done to/with someone's photos & other information.

Only free temporarily, as we all know by now is the case with Anything Internet.

I'm still fairly happy with Flickr,( https://www.flickr.com/ ) in spite of their ongoing "Improvements".

I have 20,320 of my favourite photos stored there. It allows me to organize them as I wish and share them publically or with a select group of people. One of the aspects I like about Flickr is that the people with whom I share images do not have to join Flickr to view them.

In theory, I retain the copyright and am the only person who can download them.

I have my own domain with several Gb of file storage - I can store whatever I want there and it's mine and completely private. I use the 1and1.co.uk service. I also have all my digital photos, or stuff which I've digitised, backed up on a terabyte external drive - and I'm about to buy another as they're so cheap these days - to make a duplicate backup drive.

I am very wary of storing photos etc on-line with any commercial provider (the practicalities of 0.1 MB upload speed of West Clare broadband aside). Although I use a few sites for short uploads of things I want people to see. I delete those uploads after a week or two, usually.

I have an external hard drive for back-up and, like Will, am about to move to a secondary back up of the back up.

Meanwhile I am in the process of making public a selection of traditional music photos through Clare library, who will keep them safe and are certain not to diddle me out of my copyrights or licence third parties use of the material.

You get what you pay for. Google also will "compress" the images unless you pay a fee to keep them in the native state.

I also go the huge capacity external drive route.

What Will Fly says. Having a domain and some space costs a little and (as with Google, Flickr or whatever) there may be a little learning to do in order to use it but once done things stay the same until you decide to change them.

I use a piece of free software called "Classic FTP", which allows me to view both my computer and the remote domain server. With directories selected on my side and the remote side, I can then shift files backwards and forwards between the directories as required.

I just keep mine on a hard drive on a Linux box. I've a few means of accessing them (Samba, nfs and upnp). If I do want to access them away from home I can use VPN.

I don't find I want to share many photos with others outside of home and when I do, eg. to link to one here, I prefer to use a cropped version. I normally put these on my own web space and have a clear out every so often (which, yes, I know can leave old threads with dead links...).

For home viewing by all of us together, the "image gallery" in mythtv will display them on the living room tv.

One thing I did with a sort of uploading photos was for my Panasonic Lumix camera. I wanted to be able to print to postcard card from it and couldn't get it to work with my Linux set up. In the end I came up with this simple script.

inotifywait -r -m --format '%w%f' -e close_write /home/jon/lumixprint | while read FILE
do
if [ -f "$FILE" ]
then
      lp -o fit-to-page -d PhotoPrinter4x6 "$FILE"
      /bin/rm "$FILE"
fi
done


As far as the camera is concerned, it's uploading to a Windows Workgroup (Samba takes care of that). inotifywait is a standard Linux utility that waits for changes to files and does so very efficiently. Files uploaded to this "Windows shared folder" get printed then deleted. The camera is slow connecting to the "Workgroup" but otherwise, it works quite well.

"I prefer to use a cropped version."

I meant resized but it's not uncommon for me to use a version that is both cropped and resized for Internet sharing.

"I use a piece of free software called "Classic FTP", which allows me to view both my computer and the remote domain server. With directories selected on my side and the remote side, I can then shift files backwards and forwards between the directories as required."

I tend to use gftp but it's easy to add a network folder (supported include webdav, sftp and ssh) to Dolphin (the KDE file manager). From that you could manage files in the same sort of way as you would with 2 Windows Explorer (If that's still the name for it...) windows open.

I've not tried this one but apparently you can mount a remote ftp directory That way, I could probably have Digikam, etc. using the remote folder "directly".

All (including the OS) free software.
