Newsaper Slideshows: Croydon leads the way.
They report that The Advertisers Picture Editor and Chief Photographer, David Berman, has been using Soundslides to create multimedia slideshows of some of their content.
What’s equally interesting to me is that the slideshows are being hosted off-site on Dave’s blog.
I’ve never understood why, given the restrictions of the centralised templating systems the locals are labouring under, more and more outfits don’t go to free or low cost services outside. Many of the small publications in the States have done this expanding the skunkworks concept.
Anyway,this is great, great stuff and you should head over to Dave’s blog and check the slideshows out. Oh,and maybe hassle the edtor of the paper to get a better link through to them of the Advertiser site.
