I must be missing something

Do you use Flickr to store and share photos? Or Picasa? If so, why? Aren't there equally user friendly sites that offer unlimited storage, like Snapfish or Shutterfly?

Sincerely,

Perplexed

All I know is that Neil is tech-obsessed and we use Flickr. It's super easy for me to use & blog.

But, for unlimited Flickr you have to pay a yearly fee.

Judging by the number of photos you take, a free account will be sufficient. :)

Picasa isn't just a site, it is software for your computer to organize your photos. You can click to blog a picture or email it or send it to Shutterfly for printing or whatever. You can also choose to upload some to the web. At some point that costs money. I just reached that point. Cost me $5.I've never tried Flickr.

I started using flickr because I felt like the pictures display better. Blogger compresses in an unsightly way, and you can upload at full resolution to flickr, which also makes it a good backup in case your computer ever dies or is stolen.

I also like the organizational features, so if I take my sister's engagement pictures, I can send her a link to just that group.

Flickr also has tagging capability, so if I want to search for pictures of something like string quilts or scrappy quilts I can. Tagging is also helpful for labeling family pictures with names, dates, etc.

You can also start or join groups. One of the quilt blogs I follow has a group, so you can see what other people have made from her tutorials.

And Snapfish can access a flickr account and cross-load or something. I do use snapfish for printing.

Whenever I read your blog I wish I lived by you.

Also, whenever I go to Bethesda I think about going to ben and jerry's and asking the kids if they still get high in the freezer.
