Making a Mosaic with a Flickr Photoset

From eltpics Parties and Celebrations Photoset and BigHugeLabs.com

Here’s how you can make a mosaic with your Flickr photoset.

  1. Find your Flickr Photoset and get the URL. It should look something like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/krebsclass/sets/72157627677093806/
  2. Go to the Mosaic Maker at BigHugeLabs.com/mosaic.php and decide the size of the grid you want to make. For instance, 4×6 or 5×5 are good if you have 25 or more pics. You can decide on any size or shape, and you don’t have to use all the pictures.
  3. Choose “Flickr Photoset” for how you would like to select images, and paste the URL in the address bar. Then Create.
  4. Save your Mosaic. 
  5. Copy the HTML code so readers can follow the link back to the original photos.    
  6. Insert your mosaic into your blog.
  7. Be sure to be working in HTML editor and then, under your mosaic, insert the HTML code to link back to the photos. Or, like I did, you can add the code to the end of your blog post.
  8. Optional, add text or shapes to your mosaic using Preview or any other photo editor you like.

    There you have it! If you follow these steps, you can make a mosaic, annotate it, upload it to your blog, and properly cite it. If you have any questions, or need more explanation or images, leave a comment below and I would be glad to help.

Play Nice

We went from copying pictures from Google to learning how to properly post pictures on our blogs. We learned to use the Clipart our school subscribes to. We learned about the Creative Commons licenses on Flickr and how to properly link the picture back to Flickr. We learned how to give proper credit to the people that took the pictures and how to link them back to them. But that’s not enough.

We have used other people’s pictures, but now other people are going to be using our pictures. We are transforming from users to contributors. We will be taking pictures and loading them onto Flickr so that the whole world can see our wonderful pictures and use them for their own uses.

In class we thought of some words to describe the two categories of takers and contributors.

Takers—————————————————————-Contributers

stealing………………………………………………………………………………..giving

copying………………………………………………………………………………..sharing

lazy…………………………………………………………………………………linking back

unaware……………………………………………………………………………..donating

consumer…………………………………………………………………………..producer

irresponsible digital citizen……………………………………..good digital citizen

no permission…………………………………………………….properly cites CC pics

And these are just some of them.

On a scale from 1 to 10 in the world of takers and contributors we are probably a 4, but we are working to one day be a 10.

Our class has a new Flickr account to share our photos. Check it out. We have photos to share.
