What photo sharing site do you use?

    There are so many photo sharing sites out there: Flickr, Shutterfly, Photobucket, Snapfish, Kodak Gallery, SmugMug, Picasa, dotPhoto, etc.

    I had some photos in Kodak Gallery, but they told me they were going to boot me out unless I bought something from them. So they are out, in my book.

    I want a site that others don't have to log in to and hopefully is free. I know free doesn't get all the bells and whistles, but that's ok. I just want to share some photos with friends and is easy to use.

    Do you have a good site that you are happy with? Pros? Cons? Thanks for your help!

    Photobucket and AOL has a photo sharing thingy. I just got a Kodak easy share camera so I thought that is what I would use now....but I do not like what they told you. That is not right!

    I like photobucket because you can do all kinds of editing with it.

    Have fun...

    A friend was showing me how Picasa works. It looks like it can do a lot of things, I think she prefers it over many others she's tried. I'll have to wait til I get home to try it, but it seems like it has a good reputation and I don't think you have to ultimately buy anything.

    But I'm sure there are lots of others who have tried these sites... I'll be waiting too for their opinions!

    all the best,

    I use Kodak Gallery - love it, have never purchased one thing and have never been threatened to be booted out. Hmmm. Also I also click the button that makes sure no one has to log in to view pictures.

    I know many people who use Webshots. Everyone says it's very easy to use.

    I appreciate your input.

    I'm not positive, but I think Picasa is associated with Google and Flickr is associated with Yahoo.

    I didn't know that there was a button on Kodak Gallery so that people don't have to log in. I'll have to look for that. Good info.

    I did buy quite a few prints from Kodak Gallery, so that I could keep my account with them. I remember the shipping being quite high ($9 or $10). I checked to see where I could get them printed locally and just do an in-store pick up, and the closest store was 15 miles away. I live in a highly populated area, so that surprised me. It was another thing I didn't like about Kodak Gallery. The prints themselves were just fine, so that's a plus.
