Flickr Galleries

In case you haven't heard the news, flickr introduced a new feature today. Flickr Galleries allow you to "curate" your own gallery, compiling up to 18 images from other flickr users, displaying them in the order you want, and adding commentary to each image. Note that you cannot put your own photos into your galleries, they must come from other flickr users.

I think there are some interesting possibilities here, and am brainstorming ways to use this new feature. What are your thoughts/ideas?

edit: check out some examples here

  1. Sounds like a great idea and a fun way to feature other photographers whose work you admire!

  2. Yeah, this is definitely a cool feature but probably not earthshattering. I'm interested to see what people do with it, however. I'm thinking I don't see the awesomeness simply because I personally don't know what to do with them. I'm sure I'll eat my words in a week or so when I'm checking out cool new galleries every day.
