Docent: Your guide to galleries

Galleries are an exceptional way for members to curate their favorite Flickr photos. Don’t you wish you had a guide to help you find Flickr galleries from trusted sources? Happily, developer Paul Mison brings us Docent, which is now available in the App Garden.

Docent is your “friendly Flickr guide” who finds your contacts’ galleries and notifies you of new galleries as they’re created. It’s a fun and super easy way to see what your friends are curating, and all the links take you directly to the galleries, so that you can read your contact’s commentary, leave a comment, or visit the photos to add as faves. You can also get notifications pushed to you by using the application’s Atom feed; just add it to your news reader and the content comes to you!

If your contacts aren’t making galleries, find some new ones in the Galleries: promote galleries group on Flickr. We love featuring member’s galleries on the blog, since our members really are stellar at curating Flickr photos.
