Ho aggiornato il mio spazio in RealTravel con il viaggio in Trentino Alto Adige della scorsa settimana. Naturalmente ci sono anche le foto geotaggate su Flickr !! accedete da qui !!

Per l’occasione ho tolto da alcune pagine il mio insopportabile faccione blu elettrico per sostituirlo con delle gif animate tematiche. Ho spostato inoltre sul blog i consigli per l’upload delle foto su Flickr e suggerito un percorso d’ascolto per Monty on the Run nella pagina Gamez

With Flickr you can edit metadata tags of uploaded photos but you
can’t sync them with the original pics for now.

So, before uploading pics onto Flickr, I suggest to you to:

  • Resize your pics for web use. I use batch script processing of Corel Paint Shop Pro.
  • Add IPTC tags. I use Microsoft Photo Info. The main tags are:
    • Object Name (Title). This will be the title of your pic on Flickr (e.g. Santorini )
    • Caption/Abstract (Description). This will be the description of your pic on Flickr (e.g. view of Red Beach)
    • Keywords. They are semi-colon separated strings used for searching (e.g.: gomezdegomera;”red beach”;santorini)
  • If your photos are not taken by a digital camera or you forgot to set the current date, add EXIF Date Time Original tag to your pics (tag ID 36867), so Flickr can show the correct taken date. I use the quick Exif Editor and not the odd adjust option of Microsoft Photo Info. Use the format YYYY:MM:DD hh:mm:ss and don’t forget the time!
  • Add EXIF geo tags. I use the Picasa Google Earth integration
  • Upload pics onto Flickr but first remember to enable EXIF geo tag parsing
