AOL’s Answer to Flickr

Category: Examples

AOL takes a cautious step towards Ajax with its rebranded image manager,AOL Pictures (login required). It’s not exactly Ajax as we know it:

Most tools, including those used for photo editing and batch uploading, are not AJAX, but are Active X controls, meaning only users of Internet Explorer will be able to use them. And unlike Flickr, where anyone can browse any pictures that aren’t marked private, visitors to AOL Pictures can only see pics that have been explicitly shared with them.

So no Flickr-style mashups for now.
