Remember when we shared photos of our summer vacation by loading up a slide tray — or pulling out a bunch of photo print envelopes? Now we simply E-mail a photo slide show to a friend in an instant.
Easy photo sharing via computer is all the rage. And that’s because nothing is faster, easier or more convenient. All you have to do is upload your photos. You get the pick of the litter and you get to send only those you’re most proud of.
But what happens when you have thousands of photos? That just happened to a friend of mine who came back from her honeymoon. The last thing she wanted was to leave all these precious memories on her computer. What would happen if it crashed?
Well, I told her about these fantastic easy photo sharing sites. So we checked out a few and chose one that had a mass uploader. Talk about quick! All her photos were uploaded in a matter of minutes. It was incredible! But, best of all, she now knew that they were all safe and secure, and she and her husband would have those precious memories to share for a lifetime.
I can understand my friend’s concern. When I send my photos to family and friends, there are some that I want to share with only a select group of people – not the whole world.
But then I started thinking, what about easy photo printing. Capturing a special moment with a digital camera is fairly easy. Transferring the photo to your computer is a snap. But what if you’re looking for easy photo printing?
When I was a kid, I remember how excited I was when I picked up the photos from the store. It was a real thrill to open the envelope and, there in big, bold colors was a picture of me and my brothers at he ballpark or the zoo, or on vacation with my parents. The only problem was I had to wait a full week to get to see them. And sometimes, well, I’d feel a twinge of disappointment when my favorites came out a little blurry.
The new online photo sharing sites deliver prints right to you, so you don’t have to hassle with going to drug store to pick them up. And you can choose whatever size prints you like. And, of course, the quality is first-rate, as good or better than you’d get anywhere else. As for price, you’re going to be pleasantly surprised. All the sites are very competitive and very reasonable.
When you come right down to it, with easy photo printing you get the best of everything, with none of the drawbacks. You don’t even have to be tech savvy; I’m certainly not. The easy photo sharing and printing sites walk you through it step-by-step.
I have six brothers and sisters and now we email each other all the time. Easy photo sharing keeps us close and keeps us connected, and keeps us laughing.

According to this photo, my optical mouse data LED appears to strobe @ at least 120htz. 😉 It also kinda feels like what an alien half-pipe might look at if they were into intergalactic cosmic skateboarding.
