The most important feature of this new album is the reliability that Google will maintain the software and hardware, ensuring that we shouldn't lose our album again. In January a simple server glitch caused us to lose our original photo album, although all the photos were able to be recovered.
One notable downside of using Picasa Web Albums for our photos is that it can not be fully embedded within the PSTV Alumni website, as the last album was. Because of this, navigation menu links will load the album in a new window/tab (Internet Explorer only).
As mentioned earlier, no photos were lost when we lost our original photo album, but data such as captions were lost. Most photos have been re-captioned but we need your help to re-identify some other photos. Please browse through the albums and let us know if you notice any mistakes. Especially check out the Class Photos album, where we couldn't positively identify the year and semester of nearly half of the photos. And we also need somebody who works at WXXA to take a look at the Alumni album to make sure the right names were put with the right faces.
As always, please contact me if you have new photos to add to the PSTV Alumni Photo Album.
