How to Find a Free Online Photo Album


The Web has made it possible for people all over the world to share their digital photos; here are a few of the best free online photo album sites on the Web.
  • Shutterfly: develop, print and share digital photos. If you decide to become a member, you get more benefits.
  • Photobucket: upload your images and videos, copy your links, and then post your content on any website or blog. Easy to use and free.
  • Flickr: My favorite of all free online photo album sites (membership is free, but if you want to upload more than a set number of photos, you'll need to become a Pro member). One of my favorite things to do is type in a keyword with Flickr and browse through the truly gorgeous photos there.
  • WebShots: photo sharing, free wallpaper, and free screensavers here at WebShots; over 300 million photos uploaded at the time of this writing.
  • SmugMug: unlimited photo sharing with a free trial, and then you'll have to sign up. If you're interested, I would suggest taking the SmugMug tour.
  • SnapFish: free online digital photo sharing. You can also create all sorts of fun gifts with your photos.
  • Dosize: resize your digital photos online for free and then send them to your friends via email.
  • Riya: A digital photo sharing service still in beta at the time of this writing that features face recognition technology: "automatically tags people in photos so you can search for just the photo you want."
  • Picasa: Picasa is a part of Google. "Picasa automatically resizes and attaches pictures to email messages at sizes your friends will be able to open. Works with most email programs, including Google’s Gmail."
