Main features

As in the previous chapter, before we jump into designing the clone, let's look at some major features of a photo-sharing application. Unlike in previous chapters, we will not list all major features of Flickr and clone those features. Instead, we will focus on a more generic photo-sharing application. However, the layout and design of the clone will reflect that of Flickr:

  • Users can upload photos
  • Users can create folders or albums to store photos
  • Users can add title and captions to photos
  • Users can comment on photos
  • Photos can be annotated
  • Photos have friendly URLs
  • Photos can be publicly viewable by all or privately by the user only
  • Photos can be edited and saved back to the site
  • Users can share photos with other users through the site ...
