Add Your Walk Photos

If you'd like your photos to appear on this website, then upload them to Flickr.

You'll also have to tag them, so I know which walk they are of.

The photos on the right hand side are from the SWC Group on Flickr.

Flickr

  1. Create an account on Flickr (its free for the first 1,000 photos).
  2. Upload your photos to Flickr. You can download a Flickr 'upload' program to help.
  3. Remember to make them 'public'.
  4. Tag your photos so I know which walk they are from, e.g. swcwalks book2 walk6 (NB no space between book and 2, or between walk and 6 - its one word).
  5. Join the SWC group
  6. Add your photos to the group pool
  7. Once a week, I'll check for new photos and add them to the website.

Why not Instagram, Facebook, Google Photos,....

The Instagram API is only available to businesses, not small websites. The 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.
