Re: So, where are you going?
yes, Bibi, I've noticed the option of managing access. but I've also noticed that many members have not restricted the "download the large size" option.

Re: So, where are you going?
Hi all,

Going through the alternatives, I must admit there's not much that really captures my imagination. Many sites - e.g. Flickr - are just too massive. It's OK for storing/dumping your shots, but when it comes to discussing pictures, I believe that less is more. And what I really appreciate here is the small community and the fact that we are allowed to post only one picture per day.

As much as I still feel ill at ease with the commercial new look ("learning about the world through advertizing") and as much as I regret all those excellent photographers leaving, I don't see any real alternatives really.

But if you do find that small-scale, intelligent, user-friendly alternative that showcases travel photography within a friendly, (inter)active and caring community, ...let me know. Meanwhile I'll just stick around, though with less enthusiasm.

Where am I going? To the bar probably...

But at least there are options to protect your photos... if people don't use them, it's their problem! ;o)

I am impressed with Perfectly Captured. The size limit to the photo is 1600 pixels on the long side and no limit to the kb. You can post 5 photos a day (which I don't), there is a live chat option, it was started by a Treklens member unhappy with the uproar on the forums there, the BG is black so the pictures stand out beautifully. There's just a lot of nice features. No right click option. You can look anyway.
See what you think.

Re: So, where are you going?
J'ai essayé Locr,je me suis inscrit,j'ai publié une photo,je n'ai rien compris,j'ai supprimé le compte trouvant la machine trop lourde pour mon petit cerveau,je suis allé regarder du côté de flickr,là c'est 200 photos,ensuite il faut payer.Ce site est un véritable labyrinthe,donc il ne m'intéresse pas et je n'ai pas envie de débourser un centime pour publier mes reste que je n'ai pas encore essayé.
Voilà mes amis.
Je suis vraiment désolé pour les amis anglophones mais je ne maitrise pas la langue.
Salut à tous

Re: So, where are you going?
after LOCR I began testing woophy, a dutch site, I'm not alone as I already met another historical TE member there, my first impression is good, the site is welcoming newcomers, it works also according to geography but there is a fix list of cities so if you are posting from a remote place you need to choose the closest town that can be quite far away, seems they still did not manage to hire our famous porteplume !

Re: So, where are you going?
I am sure I am not the only one quite uncomfortable with the possibility of loosing contact with some of the people who left ore are about to do it.

Bibi already mentioned the Facebook group Trekearth. That sounds a very good way of keeping in touch. Maybe this can be useful also: <a href='' target=_blank></a> ; it's a link to my bookmarks in Delicious related with (ex) TE members.

As for now, it seems that I am the only one in Delicious using the tag "te_members", so if those of you who are members of Delicious add the pages of TE members to your account and tag them with "te_members", maybe we'll have a good list of pages of (ex) TE members at <a href='' target=_blank></a>.

Re: So, where are you going?
Yup. I feel it too. It's in the air. Time to pack it up and leave this place...

Whoever cares, I can be found on flickr or facebook. I do not plan to be deleting my old TE page (with contact information) either.

Re: So, where are you going?
I like your suggestion José and I've updated my Delicious bookmarks and added the "te_members" tag to all the relevant links that I have. Hope that others will do the same too...
