Easy Way to Share Photos from Mobile to Flicker
With all the hype around the iPhone recently we thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if you could take a picture from your iPhone (or any camera phone) and have it show up on your friend’s desktop as wallpaper or a screensaver with animated 3D graphics?” Well, we thought it would be cool. If you think so too, here’s what you do:
STEP 1: Have your friends and / or family download and install Touchpoint Gallery. You can download it too, if you haven’t already. It’s free to use for as long as you want. Download Touchpoint Gallery.
STEP 2: Have them create a new Gallery that points to your Flickr account. Set up a new Gallery.
For Picture source select “Flickr User” from the Pulldown menu beside the number “3” in the purplish blue square. Click ‘New’ when the next dialog comes up enter your Flickr user name. Yes, you will need a Flickr account to try this - at least using this method. Get a Flickr account.
STEP 3: Set the Gallery you just created to be used as your default Windows screen saver and /or to automatically change your Windows wallpaper. Set Gallery as Default Screen Saver. Set Gallery to Change Windows Wallpaper.
STEP 4: Use your phone to email photos to your Flickr account. Flickr makes it pretty easy for you to do. Email photos from phone to my Flickr account .
Now every time they run Touchpoint Gallery or their screen saver kicks in, they’ll see the latest pics directly from your mobile camera phone. Sure, there are a few steps involved to get set up, but once you are you don’t have to worry about them. anymore.
Okay, many of you have probably figured you don’t have to use just your mobile camera phone for this to be cool. You can transfer the photos to your digital camera to your PC in the regular way and still have them update on your friend’s screen saver and wallpaper. That’s fun too. Again, at least we think so. If you want some help trying this out, just leave a comment or hit the user forums and we’ll get you the help you need.
We couldn’t be more excited about the response we’ve had to Touchpoint Gallery since our release in April. Along with some solid feature ideas, many of you have had very creative suggestions for new design Templates. Topping the list were requests for Templates that follow a scrapbooking theme, so we thought we’d give you a sneak peak of some of the animated designs we’ll have coming your way.
