Easier Login

Here’s a bit of a non-camera news about the site: After my last re-vamp of the backend, I decided to add support for OpenID.

What that means, basically, is that you don’t need to create an account to make comments here, you just type in the address of your home page on a service that supports it. In effect, if you’re a member of almost any social network site, you can use that account to log in, except that I never need to see your password.

The Login page is here. don’t use the username and password fields, type the URL in the third box.

Give it a try and let me know if you have any trouble!

As I probably know most of you from Flickr, you’d probably want to sign in using your Flickr address (not your login and password!) It should look like:

Flickr
www.flickr.com/photos/username
