Just got back from vacation and have a whole bunch of pictures. Looking for recommendations for free online photo albums that are easy to use (particularly for the viewer).

Thanks Acklan, but that looks like a stand alone application rather than an online repository.

I know Yahoo has an available online photo album (or 'Image Hosting'), as does Shutterfly and other. Just looking for other suggestions and opinions in the hopes that I don't have to try 100 services before finding a good one.

I would if you want to share your pics with family and friends simply is to get a free website.
http://www.100webspace.com

You could make a simple webpage and space your images out with whatever you want to say below it.

This is just a simple idea if you wanted to make one yourself...

PictureTrail at www.picturetrail.com may not be very fancy but it's about as easy to use as you can get.
The viewer just types in your name and they get icons for your albums. Click the album and they get a lh column of thumbnails and the selected image displayed with a bit of wallpaper and a frame in the rh of the page. There's even a "slideshow" button.

My only complaint is (depending on your screen resolution) the pictures can be small and you can't zoom in so far as I can tell.

PictureTrail looked pretty good, but even the payed account does not allow alot of pictures. I ended up on a site that I have been using for 'linked' pictures - Photobucket. I didn't realize that they were more 'full service' until someone pointed it out to me.

If anyone is interested, http://photobucket.com/albums/v259/davel/ , click on Hawaiian Vacation, then either Big Island or Kauai.

Are you sure about those restrictions? I admit I'd never looked at the max storage since I never envisaged posting a lot of photos but I checked back at picturetrail and found this under my (free) account details:

Space Allocated For Account 75.0 megabytes


But if I upgrade to a paid account I get -

500 photos or 50 mb space

???-I think that's a typo, it should read "or 500 MB space" since you can store photos up to 1MB size.

Q: How much disk space and bandwidth do I get?
A: Currently, Free accounts get 50 MB of space and 2,500 MB of bandwidth per month. Premium accounts are allowed up to 1 GB of disk space and have bandwidth restrictions lifted. Please see Upgrade for more details..


Just posting this info as others may be interested also.

Anyway your photos look good on Photobucket. Glad you found somewhere that suits. :thumbsup:

I emailed PictureTrail re the anomalous storage sizes and here is their reply:

Paid accounts on Picturetrail offer more storage space and number of
photos than the free account.

For sample accounts (valid for 30 days after initial registration) we offer
500 photos or 50 MB space, whichever is reached first. After the 30 day
trial period, your account automatically becomes a free account. Free
accounts have 36 photos or 20 MB space limit (whichever is reached first).

At the minimum paid level of $19.95 per year, you can get storage space
of 50MB or 500 photos, whichever is reached first.

The details for free accounts and upgradation levels can be found on:

Frequently Asked Questions:

Intro Account Details:
http://www.picturetrail.com/pages/accountU...o_account.shtml

Main Upgrade Page:
http://www.picturetrail.com/pages/accountUpgrade/

Gary, PT Support


That clears everything up. Not. :thumbsup:

So I guess the message is use PictureTrail only for DISPOSABLE photos because the free accounts are small and they won't stay around for long and the paid accounts aren't worth the money.
