That’s not a typo, it really does have three o’s. And thanks to Sharon, I now know that Zoomr.com is a new Flickr-like photo hosting service where you can:

  • Show your favorite photos to the entire world in anyone’s language (well, 15 languages currently)
  • Actually put your photos on the map
  • Add sound to your photos
  • Have full RSS support for looking at photos from your favorite news reader
  • Use the trackback feature to see who’s linking to your pictures
  • Login using your Level9, GMail, Meetro, LiveJournal, or OpenID account
  • Apply tags that allow you to define photos for convenient searching later
  • NEW! Zooomr Pro will allow you to upload 2GB of photos every month with unlimited storage!

There’s more information about Geotags and lightmaps but it’s late and my eyes are glazing over so I’ll just point you to the page where you can find out more.

Anyway, a friend of ours bought a Nikon D50 earlier this year and it wasn’t long before I was round there lusting after his equipment, so to speak. And since I have the most beautiful dog in the world, I’ve taken up the Zooomr offer of a free Pro account to any blogger who signs up and posts a Zooomr hosted picture.

    That is indeed a beautiful dog, healthy coat, intelligent eyes. You’re a lucky lady to have Daisy.

    […] This image is being hosted at zooomr which was recommended to me by Daisy. Now if I can just work out how to geotag all those photos I’ll be able to build a map of my holiday! […]
