Top Photosharing Sites for Travelers
Photos are a great way to relive your vacation. Facebook galleries aside, photo-sharing sites are still the easiest way to organize digital images and video. After registering, you can store your photos on most of these sites for free, with an option to upgrade for a fee.
Pro memberships include benefits such as unlimited uploads of videos and photos, more room for storage, and ad-free spaces. If you're not content about viewing photos online, an array of products can be ordered directly from these sites, from traditional prints and albums to mugs, collages, and postcards. Below are a few of the most popular photo-sharing sites:
- Flickr (www.flickr.com)
- Fotki (www.fotki.com)
- Jalbum (www.jalbum.net)
- Photobucket (www.photobucket.com)
- Google Photos (photos.google.com)
- SmugMug (www.smugmug.com)
- Snapfish (www.snapfish.com)
A worthy mention: Without the extra steps of uploading, attaching, and resizing, the recently-launched PhotoRocket (www.photorocket.com) makes exchanging digital files as easy as drag and drop. You can also pull images from an existing account on Shutterfly and Facebook, among others. The best part: the recipients of your images don't need to register.
