fotopedia is both a web site and an optional downloadable client. At launch the web site brings together awesome images covering more than 4500 subjects. It allows those who download the client to create encyclopedia pages for subjects of their choice, or to add images to the already existing encyclopedia pages. Users vote for their favorite images (either on the web site or in the client). Each subject is produced dynamically from the votes of the contributors and the users and will likely change over time.
The subject pages bind to Wikipedia content for the same subject.
Here is one I did earlier, for Manchester United. I am using the embeddable widget feature to put it here on my blog.
Up until now the web versions of albums could only be seen by those already participating in the beta, and Aperture was not on the list of sources, and Flickr, whilst there, was not so easy. This entire thing took about 2 minutes, start to end.
Sadly, these are my best pictures (from about 15,000). So as you can see, fotonauts needs photographers able to show it off at its best. Mine barely do so 🙂
