Share Photos Online – The easy way

Photo Sharing explained


Photo MihaiThere is no questioning the fact that digital photography has changed the way that we experience photographs. In just a few short years we’ve moved from mailing photos back and forth or printing doubles and triples of important events to simply attaching or uploading our fondest moments and sending them away, instantly available to view or distribute.

That being said, there are still lots of ways that we can connect to the people we care about besides email, and some of these methods are amazing at keeping everyone involved. Let’s check out a few great sites and see what they can offer.

The Mighty Facebook

The site that needs no introduction, Facebook is one of the giants of social media. Facebook is used to keep in touch with old friends, classmates, business associates and a wide variety of other people and also has a great way for uploading and sharing photographs. Facebook allows you to post pictures, create custom photo albums and connect with your friends and family with facebook accounts in a fast and simple way. The only major downside with Facebook is that they compress and resize your high quality pictures. So, if you want to take advantage of the site’s other features (like it’s social games and status updates) this site is a good choice, but if you want something exclusively for photos without any image quality loss, then Facebook probably isn’t the best choice.

Flickr Fun

Flickr caused a revolution in the photo industry with their innovative tagging system, and is one of the absolute best ways to share photos. Users can tag other people similar to Facebook, but the ability to tag places, groups, and objects adds incredible context to your static images. Besides Flickr’s extremely detailed tagging system, it also gives you a robust set of editing tools and photo printing options like turning your images into gifts like posters or greeting cards. Flickr is also free, which means you don’t have to pay a dime to keep your loved ones up to date.

Photoshop Online

Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard in photo editing. Any and all professional photographers that work in digital either use Photoshop for their editing or have done so in the past, so it’s no wonder that the online version of the tool is far more advanced than any other site’s. Photoshop Online isn’t just for editing as it also allows you to upload and store up to 2 gigs free with no image shrinking or quality loss. Another great feature of Photoshop Online is that you can export pictures directly to Facebook, Flickr and a wide variety of other websites. This is great because you can do your editing with their online tools then use the sharing method that works best for you and your friends.

Although we’ve just touched upon three of the most popular photo sharing sites, there are countless others that are great for sharing photos online. Each website has its own strengths and weaknesses, so see which one best fits your needs and style for sharing your photos. Some sites offer a more social and interactive approach while other sites offer better photo editors. No matter which one you choose, just remember that the most important thing is that you’re staying in touch with people that care about you, and in the end that’s the only important thing. Have fun sharing your photos!
