The Canberra PM – Pivot Collection

Going through the 1,300+ photos from the 2011 Canberra Photo Marathon can be a true challenge. Or at least it used to be until now. With the help of Chris Arnold from PhotoPivot.com we have developed a Live Labs Pivot collection of all the photos from this year’s event. The pivot collection lets you easily sort through the photos, zoom in and out, see only photos from one theme or only one participant. It’s really quite intuitive and requires very little explanation. Simply open it in your browser and play around with it and you’ll see how easy it is.

The application gives you a whole new perspective on all the photos entered in the contest and you’re likely to discover new favourites you didn’t know were there. If you do find a photo you like, you can double-click on that photo and you’re taken straight to the Flickr page for that shot where you can leave a comment or add it to a gallery.

The Pivot collection requires that you have Silverlight installed. Silverlight is a runtime environment similar to Flash and is a quick download and automatic install on PCs and Macs alike.

    Unfortunate choice of technology to display the photos. Silverlight doesn’t run on iPad. Plain old HTML & images would have been simpler and more accessible to everyone.

      Hi Henry,
      Sorry for any inconveniences caused. The photos can alternatively be viewed on http://www.flickr.com/photos/canberra-photomarathon/collections/ as well.
