I’ve been using Zooomr to store and share my digital photos for a while now (the pics I shared with you from the b5 media get together with Darren Rowse in Toronto were from my Zooomr account). But I wanted to write about it since it ocurred to me that a lot of people still don’t know that there is a great alternative to flickr. With Zooomr, you get unlimited picture storage (yes, infinity plus one) for the best price ($0.00) in the world. And they have all the usual features like tagging, geotagging, commenting, public/private settings, etc.
The company is still young and under the obligatory Web 2.0 “beta” stage. So if you’re looking for something that works flawlessly this isn’t for you. But if you want a fast and free way to store pictures and other digital images then take a look at Zooomr. If you have a blog it is a great way to take some strain off your server by having Zooomr handle your images/charts.
I like rooting for the underdog. Especially when he happens to be a hard working young guy who is going up against well entrenched competitors (flickr/Yahoo) and forcing them to play catch-up.
Here’s Kristopher, the creator of Zooomr, talking a bit about the delayed rollout of Mark III, the new edition of Zooomr which will feature a vast improvement with massive amounts of new features:
