FilmLoop – Photo-casting

If you’re like me, you love to take digital photos and then share them with friends, family, and sometimes even the whole world. And you’d like them to share their photos back with you. But waiting for two-megabyte files to upload, creating albums, sending emails, and hoping that you can push people to pictures isn’t the way to go. Instead of emailing photos, or sending people to a web page, show photos in a “Loop” on your desktop. Share your Loop with your friends – they can see your Loop on their desktop too. And, they can add their photos to your Loop if you want.

FilmLoop is a free photocasting network. Tell your story in a live Loop and broadcast it to all your friends. It’s easy to get started with FilmLoop.

FilmLoop lets you to share photos, broadcast photos, and find photos with the greatest of ease. Instead of showing photos on a web page or including them as email attachments, FilmLoop presents pictures in a “Loop” on your desktop. All you need to do is drag your pictures to the Loop, and everyone who subscribes to the Loop will see them. They can also drag in pictures, and you’ll see them. Think: “drag and drop to anyone’s desktop.”

Plus, you can browse thousands of Loops created by our extensive network of professional photo editors. Enjoy amazing, super sharp photos from some of the world’s finest photographers, along with full story captions, delivered right to your desktop. Watch “news magazine” style Loops on news, sport, entertainment, humor and more. Loops update automatically every day!

The service is completely free – without any subscription or hosting charges.

The FilmLoop “client” is a small piece of software that you download for free and install via a short, benign process. The FilmLoop client talks to the “server” on a regular basis to manage your Loops of pictures: stuff like what you’ve added, what others have added, what’s been removed, who’s made comments and what those comments are. All of this happens in the background, so that you’re kept constantly “in the Loop.”

First, download the FilmLoop Player using the buttons on the left. Then, follow these 3 steps and you’ll be on your way:

  1. Click “create” and name your Loop
  2. Drag and drop photos into the new Loop
  3. Click “invite” (Windows) or “share” (Macintosh) to invite your friends, family, colleagues — anyone you want

When you share your Loop with someone, they’ll receive an email with a link to your Loop. No attachments or JPGs. No login or URL. If they click on the link in the Loop, they’ll get the Player and your Loop.

And if you’re one of those people who loves to flip through news and entertainment magazines and look at the pictures — then FilmLoop is for you too. On the FilmLoop Network you’ll see photos you won’t find anywhere else — either on the Internet or at the newsstand. These photos speak thousands of words, every day, right to your desktop.

FilmLoop pushes pictures to people, not people to pictures. The software is only 2.7 mb, and no login, no waiting, no uploading. Life cant get more easier. (both Mac and Windows)

    LoopL ( http://loopl.com )organizes very nicely loops that are available on the web.

    It also has music artist loops. When these are opened, song fragments are played.
