Yet Another Journal of Nothing in Particular…


zooomr - Photo sharing that speaks your languageZooomr is a bit new (at least to me), but it’s really fun. Although many will most probably compare it to flickr, which is not a bad thing; similar user interface makes it easy to learn how to use the site. And there surely are some extra features such as signing in using your different web-services account namely Google, Meetro, LiveJournal, Level9, and OpenID. (Yes that’s a lot!).


Played around with it a bit and found some more cool features such as Lightbox, and the new implemented Lightmap (Geotagging). LightBox is a nifty feature using (if I’m not mistaken) Javascript by the same name by Lokesh Dhakar. It basically dims out the page, showing a particular photo in bigger sizes so you can see greater details. Here a description of Lightbox from their official blog:

Lightbox is a special display mode that can be activated by simply clicking on the LightBox emblem in the bottom left corner of all photos while searching

Also new to me is that the comment feature on their site supports Markdown, a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. And have you heard of Zooomrtations? You can add audio annotations into each image, kinda like storytelling yes? Nice. But in my opinion, the coolest feature is that it speaks 13 languages! Now go fetch your families and friends! :D

Surely there are some more features you can check yourself here.

As for now, go give zooomr a shot; there’s no need to register :D

  1. I have a zooomr account too, it’s on my blog. Whats yours?

  2. Hey, it’s
    I’ve also added a link to my Blogroll on the sidebar. Great photos you have! I need to go out and start taking pictures :o

  3. Hey Carlo, thanks for taking the time to talk about Zooomr.

    I was wondering if you had seen LightMap yet? Try GeoTagging your photos by clicking somewhere (after logging in, of course) on the map.

    Thanks again,

  4. Hello Kris, can’t thank you enough for that..

    Yes I’ve just played around with Geotagging a moment ago, pretty cool! Unfortunately Taiwan’s map is not as detailed as the US, so I can only make a rough guess at where Tainan is (or any other places in Taiwan) =p.

    Thanks again Kris, all the best to you and your team!

  5. Yeah, same thing for me and Russia. Still damned cool though.
