I'm baaaaaaaack!

...In Preston, that is.  I had an awesome 4 days in London, I already miss it.  I saw so much, and I definitely want to go back (don't know when, but it's going to happen).  Anyway, I have two large papers that require extensive editing and revision, so the London post is going to be a little slow in coming.  Because I know so many of you are waiting with baited breath at your keyboards for my next post.  At least that's what I tell myself.  I will, however upload the pictures (all 450 of them!) so you can get a preview.  Man, I'm beat!

EDIT: I hate photosharing websites.  Picasa has a storage limit (which I've alreadry reached, big surprise) and Photobucket gets everything out of order.  I'm in the market for a streamlined, free, photosharing website with unlimited upload capacity, so let me know if you know of one!  Also, Flat Stanley arrived while I was gone!  And he's life size, not the little guy I remember!  Whoa!

Elizabeth - I'm looking forward to hearing about and seeing pictures from London!

I don't know of any free site that offer what you are looking for, but flickr has a pro account that is $25/year which really isn't too bad. A lot of my friends have been using that and really like it.

If you do find something else that works, let me know!

I did look into Flickr, I might end up with that pro account. Picasa was really great, worked well with iPhoto, until it decided to tell me I could only store 1GB on there. Bummer!

Looks like you can upgrade Picasa to a larger amount but depending on how many pics you anticipate, you'll need to pay more (10GB for $20/yr 40GB for $75/year).

Apparently the flickr iPhoto plugin is alright... a bit crash-y, but usable. If you upload more than 300 photos at a time it usually crashes, but then you can restart iPhoto and it picks up where it left off. It's $25/yr for unlimited storage (which in the long run might be quite nice - you can always keep all of your photos online).

Sorry for all the info, you didn't really ask but this is much more fun than the work I have to do ;-)
