Flickr offers Android app including image processing
Photo sharing site Flickr has launched an Android app for uploading, browsing and processing images. The processing - which allows the application of ten filters and effects - is one of a number of features not included in the equivalent iOS app. These features put it squarely into competition with the popular, iOS-only 'Instagram' processing and sharing service. Flickr says an iOS version will follow 'in the coming months.'
Flickr Launches New Product Features: Photo Session and the Flickr Android App
New Features Make It Easier For People to Share Their Lives and Discover Interesting
Images – Anytime, Anywhere
Today, Flickr announced two new product features – Photo Session and the Flickr Android App – both of which reaffirm Flickr’s commitment to innovation driven by online community conversations. These features make uploading, discovering and sharing photos more interactive, allowing community members to engage with friends and family on their favorite device (mobile or PC).
Photo Session from Flickr:
Photo Session from Flickr is a new interactive way to share Flickr photostreams and sets with small groups of friends and family, so you can browse photos and chat together in real-time, on your computer, iPhone, or iPad. Created during the last Yahoo! Hack Day, the release of Photo Session from Flickr underscores Yahoo!’s passion and commitment to continued photo-sharing innovation and product support for Flickr.
Starting a Photo Session is as easy as sending a link to a friend or family member, who can then access the photos via their icomputer, iPhone or iPad from any location. With Photo Session, users can share their photos with up to ten people at a time simultaneously, engage in conversations through an embedded chat feature, and even make notes on photos using the drawing tool.
Photo Session Use Case Examples:
- Just got back from your African safari? Invite your friends to a photo session and inspire wanderlust in one and all.
- Planning a wedding? Create a Flickr set filled with wedding ideas and show them to your BFF’s to help you pick the perfect dress.
- It’s a girl! Congrats! The whole family is dying to meet her. Set up a photo session to show off the latest pics of your newest member of the family and fill them in on every coo and gurgle.
- Doing a kitchen remodel? Document the process in a Flickr set. Then, share the tears and triumphs with your remodel-loving friends via Photo Session.
