This week the WELSTech podcast discussion topic is online image hosting with Flickr plus graphic designer, Diahann Lohr, joins the conversation.
Photo Sharing – Living in a Web 2.0 world means churches and schools can take advantage of online photo sharing sites such as Flickr to post, organize and share digital images. Martin and Sallie explore Flickr and talk about ideas for using it for ministry advancement.
