We first got a digital camera just before Hannah (our oldest—4) was born. It was a 1.3 pixel still feature of our camcorder. Since then, we have had several different cameras and have taken several thousand pictures. We currently have over 11,000 photos on our computer at home. Last spring I made the upgrade to a digital SLR, which makes it even easier to take more and (hopefully) better pictures.
Most of our pictures are of the kids. We love to show them off. Although, because these are all digital, we don’t often make prints of them (except to go in frames or for gifts). Instead, the main way we share them is by posting them on the web. There are three web sites that I have used to share our pictures. I can’t decide on just one to use exclusively since they all unique features.
I invite you to take a look at our pictures at any of the sites. Take your pick and I’ll keep it loaded with new pictures. Then create your own account and share some of your own pics. There are links to each of the sites in the sidebar of the blog.
Sign up as a friend or family to see all our photos. Go into account preferences to receive an email when one of your contacts uploads new pics.
Picasa Web Albums
Create an account (or sign in with a Google account) and mark us as a favorite to be notified when we post new pics.
.Mac Web Gallery
This is the simplest of the three. No need to sign in. But it also won’t notify you when new images are posted. I’ll try to remember to let you know here and send you the link when I post new pics.
I’m interested to know what you think about the different sites. Leave your thoughts in the comments.
