My sister and I started a really popular flickr group today that has gained over 120 users in less than 4 hours. It’s called Flickr Firsts and it is a place where flickrites can add their first image to the pool. Everyone is welcome and if you’ve ever uploaded an image to flickr then you’ve got one perfect for this group.
If you’ve never added a photo to flickr – now’s the time to do it. You bought that fancy digital camera / scanner, so show that collection of beautiful images off! Also feel free to invite your friends and family to join as well.
I find that as I join more groups my photos get more exposure and I get more comments. That’s really why anyone uses flickr anyway right?
Oh, and about this image, I whipped it up in Photoshop using the flickr logo and some Verdana size 36 font – it’s for the group icon.
Update: It’s been a day and a half and our group now boasts over 700 members. It’s been fun to watch as the growth is beginning to increase exponentially. Reminds me a lot of what I read in Malcolm Gladwell’s “The Tipping Point”.

Your logo seems out of alignment on the baseline.
yeah, it is. I didn't spend enough time matching the font exactly, or lining it up exactly, or even balancing the negative space. Oh well.
It doesn't look as bad in the small version on Flickr – and that's what I made it for.
