Facebook has added a feature that provides parents a way to collaboratively build a gallery of photos of their children (or pets). Until now most parents tag their partner in kid photos so that those photos show up in both parent’s timelines. In the new method you devise a tag to use – could be your child’s name, nickname or something made up – you decide and only you and your partner are able to add the tag to photos and the gallery is accessible to you both.

Currently you must be in a named relationship on Facebook to share ownership of a tag and only two people can share a tag, making extended family sharing impossible. A work around is for those people to tag you and then you add the child/pet tags. They are also working on a notification system when new photos are added to the scrapbook – helpful for the grandparents.

Just remember that while Facebook is great for SHARING photos you shouldn’t treat it as a backup/photo archive. Facebook compresses your images and resizes down to 2048 x 2048, too small for real printing. Keep your precious memories backed up someplace that doesn’t heavily compress and resize your images. Smugmug, Zenfolio and Flickr are all great options for displaying full resolution images that can be downloaded without quality loss.

What do you do with all your child/pet photos?

 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
