Topic tags/keywords: question photos

I thought I had seen a review of the different photo sites but can’t find it. If you search for one of these every picture posted there comes up.

Seems most Lumberjocks use Photobucket. Anyone use Flicker? Are there any major differences in them such as ease of use, problems, etc.?

I want to use one for both personal and set up for a scout troop. Is one better than the other for multiple people to use?

Also, I’ve said it before but it needs repeating. The people on this site are amazing for their knowledge and willingness to help. Especially a certain few. This site is addicting.

I can’t help with the differences between those two, but I can muddy the situation by recommending picasaweb. You can have multiple albums and seperate access, such as “public, password, or e-mail invites only. I believe you have to download the picasa software from google first, but I was very impressed with the ease of sending pics through e-mail. I have sent 60+ pics at a time. Customers like pics!

I solely use photobucket, and have so for years. It is a very reliable server that does just what it needs to. I have not tried flicker so I can’t help you there.

Thanks, Dave. I really like being able to choose the image size.

Are you the nephew of the Norm you make us think about?

I had forgotten about picasa. Does it let you copy html for this site? I assume they all do but I don’t know.

Not in reality, just fantasy. Actually a nickname by a co-worker, due to similar last names. As for the other question, I really don’t know, because I don’t know what html is.

I’ve been exposed! Not quite computer illiterate, but darn close!

It would still be nice to be able just to use our own files to load photos as we do in the projects area…

tried them all. I find Google Picassa is the best. Google provides a desktop photo edit program that is simple but, powerful and NO ads on your online database! I use it for my website also. click on any clock in the gallery of clocks and a separate window opens with a gallery of photos for that clock.

I’ve been using Google Picassa for awhile and recently signed up for Flickr. I like Picassa much better.
