Share Photos Online – How to Choose a Site For Photo Sharing

Millions of people share photos online since it has become so easy. On most sites, you can just click on the “Share” button, enter one or multiple email addresses, and click send. What could be easier?

It gets a bit confusing, however, deciding which site to use. Sure, you can use any of them and most of the photo sharing sites will work fine. However, why not take advantage of some of the other features that are offered? Different sites offer different options, so you can explore and then decide which features are most important to you.

Here are some things to consider:

Photo Galleries and Display

How will your photos be displayed? Do you have a choice? Are there ads on the site?

There are many different types of galleries, some more sophisticated than others. A common display method is to show thumbnails of an album. You can then click on a thumbnail to get a larger view. Other types of displays might be slideshows, collages or stacking. With stacking, clicking on the top photo brings you to the next one. Fotki offers this option, among other choices.

Free and Premium Accounts

Most photo sharing sites offer both free and premium accounts. Premium accounts have a fee associated with them, but they offer more features. So take a look to see if the free account is adequate for you or if perhaps some of the upgrades are important.

Photo Printing

If one of your main objects is to send your digital photos out to be printed, check around because pricing can vary. In addition, different types of papers are used and delivery or pick up times are different.

Printing quality should be checked out also. Some sites will give you free photos on your first order, and this is a great way to try a site out.

Privacy Options

Do you want only certain people to view your photos, or would you like them available to everyone? Sites may or may not offer privacy options, but most do. Sometimes when photos are public, they will also appear in such places as Google Images. This may or may not be something that you want to occur.


Although there are many backup methods, you can use photo sharing sites as a backup system. Look for one that keeps your original file size. Some that do, charge for an Archive CD if you never need to get those photos back.


Forums, contests, and blogs can all be part of a site. If you are interested in “socializing”, look for these features.

Photo Removal

Make sure the site does not remove your photos after a certain period of time. For example, Kodak Gallery has the right to do this if you do not purchase an item (even one 4 x 6 print) within 12 months.

Take a look at a few photo sharing sites to see which one you like. You can try most of them out for free.

Some sites you might consider are SmugMug, Kodak Gallery, Shutterfly, Picasa Web Albums, and Fotki.

Holiday Photo Sharing Made Easy

You took the tree down, put the candles away, and stored the holiday lights. Back to the bustle of the post holiday rush – back to work, back to school, back to the real world!

If you’re like most people, you took a lot of pictures during your festivities and travels. You can see those wonderful, magical moments in your mind’s eye. Of course, those memories will fade over time. In fact, they probably have already.

You may still have those pictures stored in your camera – a lot of people do that until they get a “memory full” alert. Or, if you’ve managed to move them over to your computer, their may be sitting there, eating up memory on your hard drive while your memories of the holidays fade. If you’re really on the ball, you may have uploaded your photos to an online photo sharing site already.

Wherever you’re at in the process, you’re just steps away from bringing those memories back to life. Just think how much fun it will be to take a look at the end of the old year as you head into the new year! Doing so will help cement these wonderful memories in your mind even more.

If you’re photos are still on your camera, take a moment while reading this article to get your camera and upload them to your computer. It’s easy – just use the USB cable that came with your camera and follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

If you’ve already loaded your photos onto your computer, then take a moment now to sign up for an easy photo sharing site. Just do a search on the Internet for “easy photo sharing” – plenty will appear for you to choose from. If you already belong to one of these services, great! Once you’ve signed onto the easy photo sharing site, just follow the instructions to upload you photos.

Once you’re photos are uploaded – and you may have done this long ago (if so, congratulations!) – take a minute to think about who might like to see you photos. If it’s someone with an email address, just follow the instructions at your photo sharing site and send them a few of your favorite photos. If it’s someone without and email address, then order a few prints for them and have the prints delivered directly to their home.

Either way, you’ll be brightening someone’s day in a very special way. You’ll jog their memory and they’ll recall all the fun times they had with you. Easy photo sharing is a great way to strengthen the bonds of friendship, and keep family ties alive.

Think a little outside the box when you think about holiday sharing. Is there an aunt who you email occasionally? She’d probably love to see how your holidays went. Is there someone you used to be close with years ago, but have lost touch? Then, by all means if it’s appropriate, email or mail them a picture from your holiday celebrations.

Even the holidays are past, you can continue to spread good cheer with easy photo sharing!

Sunset Sunday – 26

This looks best embiggened on black. Click on photo or hit your L key.

A couple of quick notes. First, since this is my 26th Sunset Sunday that means I’ve been doing Sunset Sundays here on flickr for 6 months or half a year. Second, as I was driving home tonight at about 9:00 pm the temperature outside was around 7 F (-14 C). I thought this photo I took a few nights ago helped illustrate how really cold it is. Since this may be one of the whitest sunsets you’ll ever see, I titled it White Space.

Every Sunday is Sunset Sunday on my Photostream. I invite you to join in on the fun and post your own sunset (or sunrise) on Sunday and then share it with us here. Sunset Sundays are the only days I invite you to share your own photo in your comments here. Please keep it to only one and one that you’ve posted this Sunset Sunday.

Now let’s get out there and get some beautiful sunset/sunrise shots and share them every Sunday.

Photo Sharing Stories Promote Education

If you wanted to educate the world about the plight of the endangered albatross you could write a book, have it published and hope that anyone would buy and read it. But, a much easier solution would be using free online photo sharing stories to illustrate the issues that are making the albatross disappear from our country.
Just as an example, the photo could show an albatross on the end of a fishing line and the story could describe the way these innocent birds are killed as often as every five minutes during prime fishing season. This would reach a much wider audience and get your message across to people who might not care to spend hours reading about it, but would be willing to spend a few minutes looking at the pictures and reading the story.

Online photo sharing stories provide a unique way to educate others about almost any topic there is. You could create photo sharing stories about anything you are passionate about. Maybe you want to promote natural childbirth by sharing your story. Maybe you want to teach people about collecting baseball cards or how to do a magic trick. Teaching others how to properly clean their stove or bake a cheese soufflé could help homemakers around the world. Maybe you want to teach people how to make their own E85 fuel to help them save money on gas or show them how to recycle milk jugs into useful household objects. The ability to post your online photo sharing stories with both words and pictures gives a lot of flexibility in the things you can teach others.

Some people learn best by reading information on the page and others learn better through seeing things put into practice. Online photo sharing stories help put both of these methods into use which makes learning a topic easier and more interesting. A child could easily create a photo sharing story about the Civil War that could help him learn about the war to pass the test at school and then he could share that information with his classmates to help them learn as well. There are so many practical ways that online photo sharing stories can be used to promote education.
Modern technology makes a great partner in education both in the classroom and in the home. Online photo sharing stories can be used to educate people about almost any topic in a way that is easy and fun. In our fast paced lives people need a way to learn about important topics that is quick and uncomplicated. Looking at pictures and reading short stories makes learning convenient and doesn’t create a strain which means people are more likely to do it.

There is nothing more important than educating people because an intelligent world is a good world to live in. Creating online photo sharing stories brings people together as they become educated on the important and not-so-important things of life. Sometimes just putting a smile on someone’s face makes the whole thing worthwhile and helps create a better world for everyone to live in.

È la terza chiesa eretta su questo luogo: la prima era una rotonda a ferro di cavallo con quattro absidi, uno dei primi edifici cristiani della Boemia, costruita da San Venceslao (929); la seconda era la basilica di Vratislav e Spytihnev, in stile romanico, con tre navate, costruita tra 1060 e 1096; infine nel 1344 Mathieu d’Arras, incaricato da Carlo IV, iniziò la costruzione di una cattedrale gotica, che fu completata solo nel 1929.
Circa trenta incoronazioni di principi e re Boemi e delle loro mogli hanno avuto luogo nella Cattedrale e per molti di loro la cattedrale è diventata anche il luogo di riposo – circa quindici monarchi sono seppelliti qui.

Saint Vitus’s Cathedral (Czech: Katedrála svatého Víta) is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Prague, and the seat of the Archbishop of Prague. The full name of the cathedral is St. Vitus, St. Wenceslas and St. Adalbert Cathedral. Located within Prague Castle and containing the tombs of many Bohemian kings, this cathedral is an excellent example of Gothic architecture and is the biggest and most important church in the country.

A Birthday Celebration Made Special With Easy Photo Sharing

I never really considered myself to be a creative type. I’m not a great writer and my sense of design leaves a lot to be desired. All it took was an important upcoming anniversary celebration, a little inspiration, and a lot of help from an online photo sharing service to get my creative juices really flowing.

Let me explain.

A few weeks ago, I was planning for my father’s 75th birthday bash. I got the idea to make a beautiful scrapbook, filled with a lifetime of precious memories. I even found a few photos of him when he was about two years old that would make a perfect collage. I knew that Dad would really get a big kick out of it, but I was just a bit intimidated. And to make matters worse, the photos were frayed and yellow. No amount of creative spark could brighten up these photos.

A great idea was about to go sour. But then a friend of mine suggested I try one of the easy photo sharing services. And it made all the difference in the world!

Right off the bat, I realized there was no better or easier way to share your photos. After uploading all my old family favorites to the site, I realized they were safe and secure forever. And I was able to get other family members, some of who lived in hundreds of miles away, to include their special photo memories in my budding scrapbook too. And it was done instantly. So I saved an enormous amount of time!

But here’s the really good part.

The online photo sharing site had all sorts of quick tips and suggestions on how to make my presentation come alive. In no time, I added a border here, a banner there, and –voila — I created a fantastic slide show!

And here’s one more thing. I was able to add my own voice recording along with a few poignant words to add a whole new dimension to my trip down memory lane. Just search “easy photo sharing” and you’ll find a site that does audio.

As for the slide show, it was big hit! Everyone shared some laughs and some tears. And Dad, tough on the outside but always the big softie, well, he cried like a baby. It was beautiful!

So here’s my advice: The best way to share fun memories is online. Don’t be scared away form online photo sharing just because you’ve never used a computer or because you’re intimidated by new technology. The fact is, they do all the work for you. Just upload your photos you want to share, then use their automated sharing feature to send the link to our family or friends.

And a little imagination goes a long way. Easy photo printing also makes for a thoughtful gift. You’ll be surprised how easy and how much fun it is to create a photo album or a photo story book you’ll be proud of.

So throw away that old shoe box. Take down your favorite photos from the fridge. Start saving and start sharing your precious memories online.

You’ll love it!
