Cool 'dynamic set' thing with Flickr, try it

Mike's photos on FlickrFlickr: A web place to store all your photo - here's my photo homepage. Once you've got 'em in you can tag 'em, see them by date or on a map - my tags and my map.

Flickr sets: Grouping your photo's however you like - here's my lot

Now, when you've got over 14,000 photo's trawling through them to stick 'em into sets is quite a pain even though I have started with the "Top 20 ..." type sets.

And then I discovered SmartSetr.
More explanation - Flickr will, if you explicitly allow, let other applications access your photos. There's quite a few Flickr 'apps' out there but I'm only really starting to discover them.

SmartSetr - create dynamic Flickr setsOne I have discovered and used is SmartSetr - this lets you create dynamic sets. You give it a few parameters such as how many photo's to be in the set, how to sort them, get photo's based on time, tag etc and off it goes, generating your set for you. It will then update the set automatically.

I used it to create the following two sets (more will come):
  • 40 interesting Mikes
    This smartset contains all photos that contain any of the tags mike. The smartset contains photos that are public and are sorted by interestingness ascending.
  • 40 interesting Riversdales
    This smartset contains all photos that contain all of the tags jack, meg, liz, mike. The smartset contains photos that are public and are sorted by interestingness ascending.
