I’ve been a big fan of
- Sets (will be called Albums).
AJAXinterface, with drag ‘n’ drop for arranging photos.
- Dynamic Albums that will automatically fill themselves with photos that match criteria you set – what tags they have, how new they are, how highly rated they are, etc.
The big one that’s still missing is
RSSfeeds, but they say that’s “coming” – hopefully before the big release, as it’s been an important factor behind Flickr’s success. It all sounds pretty good, but I do fear for the interface. Yahoo tend to make everything rather unpleasantly ‘busy’, and they can be a bit heavy-handed with the ads at times. Still, they seem to be buying all the big Web 2.0companies, so hopefully they’ve understood why we love them.
