New fotonauts milestone

Slowly but surely the fotonauts development team is getting to the point where we can begin to release invites from the – now very long – queue. It will be worth the wait.

Today I was able to make an album from my Aperture library, and without time to even blink, a web version of the album was available for me to share – http://www.fotonauts.com/albums/d5b780ae-8509-4f01-9a4d-38fa974a6255. I also published it to my Flickr account without extra effort – http://www.flickr.com/photos/kteare/sets/72157607916412505/.

And, as with all albums, I could make a widget to put here:

Up until now the web versions of albums could only be seen by those already participating in the beta, and Aperture was not on the list of sources, and Flickr, whilst there, was not so easy. This entire thing took about 2 minutes, start to end.

Sadly, these are my best pictures (from about 15,000). So as you can see, fotonauts needs photographers able to show it off at its best. Mine barely do so 🙂

Jean-Michel Jarre posting pictures on fotonauts

Jean-Michel Jarre has – he claims – been resting. And during his rest he has started playing with fotonauts – as one of the very early beta testers.

fotonauts albums can already be posted in the wild via widget.

Here is a page from his “Concerts” Album – from his Paris concert in 2007.

And Barcelona 2008

As you can see below – the application gives him a direct means of communicating with his audience, and allows them to add their own photos from the concerts.
