Scrapblog: Create special photo albums (with an impressive Flash based interface)

With Scrapblog you can create online photo albums (based on cool design samples or make your own). The ScrapBook creator software is flash based (apparently created with Flex) and is a must see!

Here is a sample that I have created in less than 10 minutes based on some of my photos on


Jaw-dropping Photosynth demo

Using photos of oft-snapped subjects (like Notre Dame) scraped from around the Web, Photosynth (based on Seadragon technology) creates breathtaking multidimensional spaces with zoom and navigation features that outstrip all expectation. Its architect, Blaise Aguera y Arcas, shows it off in this standing-ovation demo.

Some nice stats from

According to the flickr blog:

  • They serve 12,000 photos a second at peak times — that’s 2,654,208,000 bits each and every second
  • They set an all-time upload record May 28th: 2,070,075 photos in 24 hours!
  • The Flickrverse has over 8.5 million registered members

So their bandwidth peaks are at 2.7 Gbit/s. That’s not bad at all….

findr: Tag based, interactive image search in the flickr cosmos

Again a flash-based interface add-on for flickr: With findr you can interactively browse through the photos on flickr using their tags. The more tags you select the more focused your search becomes.

Create comic strips with “bubblr”: Another cute flickr tool
