New Photo Gallery
So I have been debating for a month or two about switching my photo gallery over to service rather than hosting them myself on my site. I have been trying out Google’s Picasa Web Albums since December and I really like it so far. I already use their Picasa photo program, so mass uploading lots of photos is a breeze.
Google’s Web albums have some features that I am especially pleased with:
- Easy uploading
- Privacy Options (I may take advantage of this in the future)
- Comments feature, allowing others to comment on photos
- Easy downloading/sharing for family members who choose to do so
- Easy Print Ordering
- No sign-in required for guests to view (for Public albums)
- RSS Feed
- Overall User-Friendliness
- And hey, it’s Google.
So for any future pictures, I will be posting them on my Google Picasa Web Album at http://picasaweb.google.com/amberreimer/. Right now everything is public, but I may turn some into private albums (viewable only by invitation). We’ll see. I have posted over 200 new photos in the last couple of days, so enjoy!
