Add Your Walk Photos
There are over 35,000 photos of the various walks on this website.
We'd love to include your photos.
- tag them (see below), so we kow which walk the photo is for
- upload them to SWC Group on Flickr, a photo sharing website.
You can check them on the new photos page. We pick the photos up from Flickr, and add them to the website. If your photos don't appear on the walk's page after a day or 2, check the 'bad tags' page.
SWC group on Flickr
You are invited to join the SWC Group on Flickr. We use it to organise walk photos
Flickr is unique in allowing people to organise their photos, and share them with websites. Sadly, Google Photos, Facebook and Instagram don't allow this.
You can upload 1,000 photos for free, which is plenty - 10 to 30 photos is enough for most walks. Above that limit, you need to pay for a pro account.
- Create an account on Flickr (its free for the first 1,000 photos).
- Join the SWC group
- Upload your photos to Flickr.
- Remember to make them 'public'.
- Add them to the SWC group
- Tag them so I know which walk they are from, e.g. swcwalks swcwalk123
Flickr Apps - these make it really easy
How to Tag your Photos
Please tag your photos, so I can assign them to the correct walk
|All photos must have this tag - its how we find them|
|book 1, walk 3|
|book 2, walk 13|
|SWC Walk 117|
|Long distance path walk 22|
|short walk 3|
Walks Tags - special cases
|Use 'pretty' on any pretty photo - e.g. for a photo of a tree or flower, that could be from any walk|
|a new walk, not yet assigned a walk number|
|For SWC Social Events|
Why not use Instagram, Facebook, Google Photos,....
The Instagram, Facebook and Google Photos API's only give temporary links - i.e. they expire after a day (Google) or week (Facebook). Our intended public use of the photos is against their Terms and Conditions.
Google have switched off Picasa Web Albums API we used to use (although, the links for existing photos still work)
It would be possible to download your Facebook and Google Photos on to our website, and host them ourselves. We are considering both this, and having a club Flickr account.
