Flickr in the Style of The Big Picture

If you’re addicted to The Big Picture like we are, then you probably also wish they posted more than two or three times a week. You should also take a look at The Big Pictr, a neat website we just came across. Although it blatantly copies The Big Picture in its name and design, the idea behind the site is pretty interesting.

It’s basically a community generated photoblog with the large photograph style of The Big Picture. Anyone can start a new collection with a Flickr user, search term, or tags, and then share it privately or publish it to the front page. For example, here’s a collection we just created using photos from our Flickr account.

If this website takes off, it could be a great way to both browse interesting photographs and promote your own photography.

    Aye – but here's the rub – the Flickr images must be at least 1024 pixels wide or something of that order – shame, I've kept things pretty small, as have many photographers, so this may not work for you if you limit your images to 800px for example…

    Love The Big Picture, and it's fun to see your own photos like this.

    Then it's not 'a big picture'

    Looks nice and indeed the images have to some what smaller. I guess I have to resize all my shots with the shortage edge being 1024px.

    The only thing I'm missing is an feed option for your own collection :-)
