Curate Embeddable Thematic Photo Galleries from Social Hashtags with Picsho

Robin Good's curator insight, June 30, 12:50 PM



Picsho is a free web app which allows you to create embeddable photo galleries from your favorite hashtag pics gathered from Instagram, Flickr, Twitter, Tumblr and other social networks.


Picso which I have reviewed before in 2012, has completely revamped its interface and released a new much simpler and more intuitive new version. 

To use it, you simply enter a hashtag or keyword, you select up to five visual sources (Flickr, Instagram, etc.) and then you wait for your gallery to load up. Once displayed you can manually curate which pictures to keep and which ones to exclude.

Once done, you assign a name and you can save and publish the gallery. If you are logged in, you can also re-edit and update your gallery anytime.


The only limitation, is that you cannot re-arrange or reposition images in a gallery.


For the rest, Picsho is one of the best and easiest tools I have found to rapidly curate a social images based collection and to be able to publish it on any site.


Free to use.

Barbara Vermaas's curator insight, July 1, 2:53 AM

Volgens Robin Good een erg handige een eenvoudige tool om afbeeldingen te verzamelen van Flickr, Instagram, Tumblr en andere sociale netwerken. Ik wil me niet zomaar overal voor registreren om een applicatie uit te proberen, dus ik moet afgaan op het oordeel van een ander. Maar wat hij erover schrijft klinkt wel erg bruikbaar.

Je verzamelt op basis van een hashtag of trefwoord een complete gallery waar je naderhand nog afbeeldingen uit kunt verwijderen. De volgorde kun je niet aanpassen.

Gratis tool.

Prezi realizza presentazioni di grande effetto con il minimo sforzo, ma spesso l'autore non riesce a sfruttare il supporto nel migliore dei modi. Questo post fornisce indicazioni utili e semplici almeno per cominciare nel migliore dei modi.

"Opening up the potential for anyone with a Web connection to hack the humanities."

 

"The online library is a massive, years-long effort to digitize and connect the collections of libraries, archives and museums across the U.S. Its mission is to unlock a rich trove of historical and cultural data—including documents, photographs, artwork, maps and audio—digitized, archived and easily searchable thanks to rich metadata."
