Creating your photo blogging site withis super easy. Flickr is just a platform that allows you to upload and share your photo album with your friends and family. Flickr does have some space and folder restrictions. I think you can only upload 2 videos and 100MB worth of photos each calendar month to your flickr account. If you want to exceed that you will have to purchase a Flickr pro account. That’s why you should create your own photo blogging site or photo gallery site. You can upload as many videos or pictures to your site.
Here are some JoomlaI would recommend to create your own Flickr photo sharing website:
- Phoca Gallery – Phoca Gallery component is free and provides extensive features such as creating your own categories, sub categories, allows you to upload your pictures easily, tons of documentation, different modules to place around your site, customized behaviour (turn on or off the slide show option) and plenty more.

- Art Sexy Lightbox Lite Edition – This Joomla component is also free and easy to use. It displays your photos, photo groups with fancy pop up with a lightbox effect. Click here to check out the Art Sexy Lightbox Lite demo.
- Matrix 3d image gallery – If you’re interested in a photo gallery with Real 3d actionscript 3, this is the one. Matrix 3d image gallery has multiple types of settings for your gallery to change the look completely. This gallery can also function as a flash menu just changing the settings. Pretty cool, check out the Matrix gallery demo here.
