Zooomr is an online photo sharing service that helps connect people together through photos.

“Zooomr is a service that allows you to make friends and find amazing photos at the same time!” [Zooomr]

Features:

  • RSS feeds for recent photos & individual tags
  • Signup/Login using Level9, OpenID, or LiveJournal
  • Multi-language support
  • Email uploading
  • Unlimited Storage
  • 100MB Monthly limit for Free Accounts
  • 4GB Monthly limit for Pro Accounts
  • GeoTagging
  • Zooomrtations (sounds)
  • SmartSets
  • People Tagging
  • And more

I love the SmartSets feature where you could define sets using tags. I’m not sure if Free Accounts have a limit to how many SmartSets you can build, though. I noticed that the site employs Trackbacks, but could not figure out exactly what they are good for.

Too bad that Flock does not support Zooomr in its built-in Photo Uploader (yet). For ease of uploading, your best choice would be to use jUploader.

Speaking about “geotagging”: do you know locr?

locr offers the ideal solution and makes geotagging exceptionally easy. locr uses GoogleMaps with detailed maps and high-resolution satellite images. To geotag your photos just enter address, let locr search, fine-tune the marker, accept position, and done! If you don’t know the exact address simply use drag&drop to set the position.

For automatic geotagging you need a datalog GPS receiver in additon to your digital camera. The GPS receiver data and the digital camera data is then automatically linked together by the locr software. All information will be written into the EXIF header.

Use the “Show in Google Earth” button to view your photos in Google Earth.

With locr you can upload photos with GPS information in them without any further settings. In the standard view, locr shows the photo itself, plus the place it was taken. If you want to know more about the place where the photo was taken, just have at look at the Wikipedia articles which are also automatically assigned to the picture.

Have a look at http://www.locr.com.
