Photobox Turns Two

Over the last few weeks it's dawned on me that Photobox is about to turn 2 years old. It was around this time two years ago that I got the software written. In fact, it was more or less finished on May 22nd, and put online on May 29.

On reflection, while the development process has been pretty long, looking at the code and original version, it really has grown a lot over the past two years. The development cycles have been fairly staggered, but intense once they come around.

I had hoped to get the latest version (v2.2.0) finished and online around now, to coincide with the anniversary, but I really haven't had time. One of the biggest features in the latest version is the ability to tag photos. This is something I had thought would be cool quite a while ago, no doubt influenced by Flickr, but hadn't thought that it was a priority over other features I wanted to add. After I got version 2.1.0 finished and online, I started development on tags in March, and as soon as I got it working realised how valuable of a feature it is. It'll be good to get this deployed sometime relatively soon.

Nether the less, it's interesting to look back on Photobox's origins, when when it started the only intent was a quick way to put my photos from the 2005 trip to Arizona online easily, and it quickly turned into a fully fledged application.
