What is your favorite way to share photos with friends and family? Do you post photos to Facebook, email them out, post to a personal blog?

We have a privet family shutterfly page. Everyone we invite can see them but no one else can we have ours set to the highest security. Its safe and secure, we took all pics of people off facebook due to the lack of security on it. Don't be fooled if its on facebook the world can see it and they have the right to take anything you post and make it a featured post... With a internet security guy for a hubby you bet we use the safest ways LOL!

FB, digital picture frames for the grandparents who don't do computers, but the best place is our myfamily.com website. My hubby is one of 12, and there are over 30 nieces/nephews and that doesn't count the next generation, so it's the best place for everyone in the family to share things with each other, pictures, events, news, etc.

I use Picasa, you can send them via email or you can upload them to your web album were you can share that with everyone you want to see you album. I have been using this for over 5 years!

Sometimes I use kodak.com, but mostly I post pictures and even my LOs on my family web site. For the older family members to appreciate the pictures I will print some to handout or put in physical scrapbooks via Costco.

I use kodak.com for my family albums. It is easy to use, especially if you have a Mac (they use ofotoexpress and you just click and drop). I like it because I can add filters, frames, turn color photos into black and white and re-arrange the photos to my hearts content. I've also used their software to create calendars, which turn out great and in-laws that live far away love it!

I use a system called SendOutCards. It's amazing and costs less than Wal-mart!!! No more printing the photos out! I upload my photos, go into my system and design my card w/ my kids pictures on the inside and out, type a message, click send and wa-la...the reciepent will receive a greeting card in the mail with my kids pictures in it. Check it out and send a card on me at www.sendoutcards.com/52773. You can;'t even imagine how you can make others feel by sending them a greeting card IN THE MAIL!!! Everyone loves mail!!!

I create digital pages with my photos using Creative Memories Storybook Creator, it can be saved as a JPG then posted on facebook so they can see the whole event with the story not just the pictures.

We have a family share site on Shutterfly. I like it because I can add albums for any occasion and my family and friends can view it without having to log in like some sites. The grandparents can order prints whenever they like as well.

I really don't do them through email. I usually create digital pages or albums and share them through Creative Memories photo site or through Facebook. I really think FB is a great way to share pictures/pages.

I edit my photos in Google's Picasa and then upload to flickr. I love flickr groups and the privacy levels I can create.

I use flickr... I like that it is free and that people do not have to register to see your pics. I will update with pics and about once a month send a mass email to my address book that I have updated the flickr page and remind them of the link. Great for out of towners!

I also am a Shutterfly fan. I've created private Web sites for both boy's schools and both Scouting units. It's just a great way to share photos and update information.

I created a blog and I love it because I can write descriptions of the photos, events and include updates of the kids.

I also use shutterfly. It interfaces with google's picasa and it also allows my family to add their pictures of my son to the site as well. It also has the ability to create calendars, notecards, greeting cards, and photo books. It has a small journal ability and as said before, does allow videos as well. I also post to facebook - which shutterfly will post to there as well. It also can be passworded so you can make sure people that are looking at your child are people you want looking at your child

I love Shutterfly. I just created a "website" and can keep all the albums I share/want to share with friends and family. I also set it up so that it automatically sends an email to the "members" of my site letting them know when new pictures have been posted. It just added a new feature that you can upload video clips as well. It's free, and no need to sign-up, become a member, etc. if people don't want to.

I use Facebook or myspace. My grandparents do not have computer and they love picture DVD's with music. These are simple to make if you have windows media center on your computer.

I create albums on google's picasa for any pictures of my kids, and use flickr for pictures that don't have people in them (usually vacation pics and stuff).. I also use a free program called smilebox (www.smilebox.com) periodically to send out digital scrapbooks via email to friends and family.. I just completed " A week in the life of ..." for each of my kids, to let everyone know what they do during the week and how it usually goes for them.

I mainly use Snapfish to create "albums" and then send a link to my family/friends... a lot of folks that I want to share photos with are not big FB or blog users, so this seems to be the best way to let them see pics without clogging their inbox. I like it too because I can edit the photos, add captions, etc. and even pull from various albums I create over the course of a year to do things like create annual calendars for the grandparents.
