„After I had my first digital camera for awhile, I thought I couldn’t possibly take more photos. Then I got a cameraphone. That always-on-me, tiny camera changed the way I remember (or forget) things for good. Alongside photo-sharing service Flickr, you can capture and file away your digital photographic memory where ever you are. Today I’ve got some ways you can use your cameraphone – or straight up digicam – in conjunction with Flickr as your photographic memory.
On uploading photos to Flickr from your phone

Flickr’s got some advanced settings for uploading pictures via email that aren’t well-known. You can tag photos in an email using the tags: x „y z“ format in the subject or on a new line in the body of a message. Also, using suffixes like private or ff with the secret upload email address Flickr supplies you will mark the photo as private or viewable by your friends and family.

For example, say I’m at Fry’s and I spot a hard drive I’m interested in, but I want to research it more online when I get home. I create a new message with the photo on my phone, and use the email address Flickr supplied me for upload. That message might look like:

To: foo10bar [email protected]
Subject: Seagate 300GB tags: „to research“ frys „to do“
Body: [Photo attachment]
300GB, 7200RPM, USB 2.0, but a bit expensive?

Subject: Seagate 300GB tags: „to research“ frys „to do“
Body: [Photo attachment]

You’ll notice I added private to the address so I won’t subject my friends to my boring, blatant consumerism. (That marks the photo as viewable by me only.) Also, I tagged the photo „to do,“ „to research“ and „frys“ so when I get home I’ll remember to find out more about the drive and where I saw it.

Now that you’ve mastered on-the-fly tagging and privacy settings, here are a few ways one can create a personal photo database with your cameraphone on the go….“
