The troop makes use of many forms of media services and to promote and disemitate information to our members and the general public. Here are some of the services we use and a little explanation of how we make use of them.

 

dropboxDropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. This means that any file you save to your Dropbox will automatically save to all your computers, phones and even the Dropbox website.

Dropbox also makes it super easy to share with others, including scouts, scoutmasters, webmasters, and other leaders.

If you alrady have a dropbox account you can request a shared folder for the Troop 451 so you can collaborate with us.

 

flickr

Flickr is the best way to store, sort, search and share your photos online. Flickr helps you organize that huge mass of photos you have and offers a way for you and your friends and family to tell stories about them.

We store all of our photos and videos in flickr for troop members to view and download. Once we collect most of the photos from any activity, we usually upload them to dropbox first for processing and selecting, then we post them on flickr and create the necessary links to our site. If you already have a flickr account you can just request access and join us directly.

 

YoutubeYouTube provides a forum for people to connect, inform, and inspire others across the globe and acts as a distribution platform for original content creators. Most of the movies created or edited by the scouts will be stored in the troop451 channel at youtube. If you have any videos you have taken of any events, please contact the webmasters so we can link them to our channel or upload them.
