Taking, and Sharing, Pictures

I've had some folks ask me about how they can share pictures they take during the Summer Institute. The answer, it turns out, is very simple. All you need to do is to host your photos via Flickr, a free photo hosting site. Once you've gotten your photos online via Flickr, you've got two options for sharing them with everyone. The first, and easiest, is to tag each photo you take with the tag "csuwp". I know, very creative, huh?
Once your photos are tagged, then you'll automatically see them in the badge on the right side of the blog main page. Click on them to see them in full size.
Also, once your photos are in Flickr and you're registered as a blogger on this blog, you can click the "blog this" tab above your individual photos from Flickr. Then, you can write a blog post and put a particular picture right into the post, as I did with the "Trouble" post below.
This stuff, once you get the hang of it, is all really quite easy. I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures.
