Amazing Photo Tools

I just spent the better part of today playing with a new website called TagGalaxy. It is a wonderful display of photos tagged on Flickr. I realized that I could create a unique tag for my own photos and see a interesting display with this tool. If you type in Indianabloom in the tag name you can see the images I have taken over the past two years. I can see plenty of applications in an art room. I can't wait to share this with my students in the fall. A great application of this web tool would be to allow your students to select a specific photo and tell a story about it. I plan to post artwork on Flickr to display for the school this year. TagGalaxy is a great application to display artwork publicly.

I'm glad to see someone else using the application. I think it is neat, although I am not sure how you could move it to something more substantial for the classroom. It certainly has a "wow" factor for me.
Good luck with your workshops.
