IMO flickr is a lot more intuitive and user friendly than pb.  And quicker.
The only annoying thing i've found so far is the inability to nest a collection inside another collection if the collection being nested in has albums in it.

So no folders within folders which is what I thought  :banghead:

That means I have to be very specific with my folder naming as I can't group all my F-4 builds into one folder then have sub folders which each subject as I do on my PC.  Ah well, can't have everything I suppose  :-\

You can have folders within folders but as soon as you have actual photos in a folder then you can't have a folder in there as well.

So you could have a folder called F4s which contained sub folders for individual builds but you couldn't put photos in the F4 root folder, only in the individual sub folders.

I think I am in danger of mansplaining this.

If flickr will let you look at this page then you will see how I have organised my stuff.

Cheers mate  :thumbsup:

That is my plan once I start shifting stuff over. Figuring out how to actually do it will be the fun part of the exercise.  :o I was always a "theory" rather than "practical" bod.

Thanks to zenrat for the information that making layers of folders or sub folders inside other folders, knowing it was possible helped me accomplish that although my folder organisation is not a neet as his is.

Various things are coming together, all my pictures are now moved to Flicker and at some point I will start to update several build threads but if they are not currant builds that I am actively working on it could be come time before I actually update them.

Many years ago I bought a casting kit and made one rubber mould using a lid from a coffee jar as the outer casing because I was not worried about cutting up and throwing away the lid to get at the mould. The mould consisted of a few parts of a Tamiya 1/35 Panzer so I could upgrade a few other kits but I lost interest and threw away the kit. Recently I became interested again due to a couple of builds and projected builds which involve Sabre engines as fitted to the Hawker Tempest Mk. V fighters. Rather than buying a whole host of kits and cutting the noses off just for the engines I decided that perhaps casting the engine would be a far better solution and potentially cheaper too so I have bought a couple of small bottles of food quality rubber as the start of the process. Hopefully the whole thing will move on smoothly once I manage to find time with work, Wimbledon, Le Tour and numerous other things going on and making my get up and go to do just that while leaving me behind.

That's another build updated picture wise, my F-111B build is now updated ready for me to try and get back modelling this aircraft again.

Gondor

P.S. And my F-111K build as well.

I should really get back to working on these two. Both are intended to be production machines, the B to be of VF-1 and the K is to be of 17 Sqn if I remember correctly  :-\

That's another build thread with updated picture links. My KC-11 build and all its fifty eight photographs were moved from PB to Flicker then all the links that I could modify were. Think I will need to lay down in a dark room for a bit after all that.

I know exactly what you mean.  It's almost like pb make it as hard and slow to download pics as they can without actually stopping you do it...
Count the number of pop up ads you have to close between opening pb and successfully downloading a folder.  My record is 9.

Is that a maximum or minimum number your trying to achieve or recording?

I appear to be making some progress. Not only have I been working on the ejector seat for my 60 Sqn Lightening, I have also started to work on the ejector seats for the other two builds for my XV426 build as well.

It was an annoyance level.  0 would have been optimum.
