Arr! Smuggle yer booty outta Sony ImageStation!
Aye, ye be hearin’ right: Sony ImageStation be shutting down, the latest in a long line of free photo sharing sites to make for port and haul down their Jolly Roger. Back when I was just a young deckhand and the Dread Ship SmugMug was barely a gleam in me eye, Sony ImageStation was one of the heavy hitters in these seas, and the thought of running up against them on the high seas in the dead of night did shiver me timbers.
Things be different now, with the Dread Ship SmugMug hailed in all the seas of the living and the dead as the greatest pirate ship to have ever set sail. Once mighty cap’n Sony has hung up his hook for all time. But in a last dastardly act, that scurvy dog tried to foist off all yer booty onto Shutterfly, a true land lubber if ever I saw one.
If ye prefer to sail the high seas with the rest of us honorable scum, though, ye’re not outta luck! A new beta version of SmuggLr adds ImageStation support in addition to the great Flickr support it’s had for quite some time. Simply install the free Firefox extension (instructions here) and a few glugs o’ grog later, yer booty’ll be safe inside SmugMug’s holds, protected and supported by the best o’ me hearties on deck. Best of all? Enter the secret password ImageStation to receive a 50% discount on yer first year’s passage.
As ye can probably tell from me portrait, the Dread Ship SmugMug and her crew are quite fond of grog, booty, and International Talk Like A Pirate Day. If ye be needin’ help from one o’ the deckhands, be sure to throw an ‘Arrr’ or ‘Ahoy’ their way. Oh, and one o’ the slaves in our brig lays tale that the Black Ship Flickr be flying the Jolly Roger particularly high today as well. I raise a jug of grog in their honor, and the honor of all those who plunder the high seas.
