Experimenting with Closr

Despite the fact that I’m sick and tired of the fact that every little startup from here to New Yrk thinks it’s cool to remove a vowel from their name, I’m giving Closr a try. It lets you upload full resolution photos and then zoom in to see the photo in minute detail. Interesting.

    It’s neat, but in the end not totally useful if you wanted to say, share the image since it’s in flash. Then again, maybe you DON’T want to share the image, which may be a good thing.

    Also… Maybe it’s the photo in this case, but looks overly blurry to me even after the ‘clearing up’ pass.

    I prefer using majhost.com. It lets you store huge images, lets you organize things into folders and makes the real images available. However, as Eric mentions, perhaps you don’t want to actually share the full image. Another advantage of Closr over majhost is that really big images are available quickly, since only a screen’s worth is sent down the pipes.

    Wow! Nice pic. Where was it takn? ;)

    Paulette — Honestly, I don’t remember! :-) I think it might be somewhere along the route between Seattle and Portland. I seem to recall it’s a bit of a tourist trap because the waterfall is about 150 feet away from the highway.

    That’s Multnomah Falls in Oregon. Google for more images of it. The photo only shows the second shorter drop.

  6. Dave Says:

    Todd - yes, thank you. That’s the right place. The photo I posted here is admittedly not a very good one. I just grabbed something to test Closr, and wasn’t thinking much about trying to show off a good photo.
