PhotoWall is my latest project, and the reason my blog rate has suffered recently! I've been working on this for a good number of weeks now, but finally I'm happy that it is ready for the masses! So what is it? Well, as usual the best way to find out is to go and try it out, and read the about page, but if you can't be bothered to do that, read this:
PhotoWall is a constantly changing montage of photos taken directly from Flickr (using their fantastic API). It's a great way to view lots of photos at once and discover new photos uploaded to Flickr.
So now you know! From this point onwards I'm assuming you've taken a look at PhotoWall. One of the most interesting things I find is the way the whole feel of the wall changes depending on the feed. For example, recently uploaded photos tend to be people, babies and places, but with similar colour tones and contrast. In comparison interesting photos result in a bright, colourful high contrast wall tending to be of objects and places, rather than people. The time of day also affects the recently uploaded page, which is obvious as to why it happens, but is more noticable that it happens using the wall.
In my opinion this is one of the best web pages I've produced, and I'm very happy with how it has turned out. The use of subtle animations and the clean interface is very professional looking, and I'm proud of it! Thanks also go to Tony for helping me test this, and for suggesting some features.
So what are you waiting for, go enjoy it and explore the millions of photos on Flickr...
