Wow! This week, I tested out using photophlow as a tool for selecting the weekly PhotoDump images. I invited fellow Flickr users to come hang out with me while I went through the photos, and we actually had a great turnout! At one point, I think we had around 15 people in the room, and that included both of the photophlow dudes.
This little get-together was an experiment, so it wasn’t a completely smooth ride. But it actually worked really well even with 10-15 people in there. I think we all had a good time browsing through the group’s photos, commenting on them, and learning from each other. Everybody had different insights on the photos, and it was worth just sitting there and listening sometimes.
I think I spent about 4 hours in photophlow, so we’ll have to work on streamlining things a bit when we have nearly 200 photos to get through. I’m planning to do a decent write-up on the possibilities of photophlow, but I’ll save that for later — I still need to do a bit of experimenting with it. So here are the Flickr group stats and the results of our 4 hour photophlow session.
