Zooomr is a free photo sharing and hosting service.
Zooomr is a free photo-sharing and hosting service. It offers support for multiple languages and geotagging, the process that lets users place their photos on a map. The service also offers several modern day Web technologies to sort through photos such as tags and camera EXIF data.
One of its more interesting features called "portals" was launched late last year. Portals are clickable zones that link photos together. For example, if there's a picture of a house, you can make the door into a Zooomr portal and link it to a picture of the inside of the house. Users can create all sorts of complex portals and share them with friends.
In many ways, it's very similar to popular photo service Flickr, although Zooomr offers its services for free and is independently run.
