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?

 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance. Captured with the GH5 and 12-35 f/2.8 Lens #lumixloungegh3
 Rainy Day Reflections of Seattle's coolest public library - I almost said coolest building but the new Amazon spheres are crazy cool. I like living in the future - now if we could just ecotopia this place up all would be peachy!
