There are probably over one hundred online photo sharing sites available to us with another handful being released tomorrow. If you are confused on which one is right for you, you’re not alone.

by Molly Bullard of Seattle Photo Organizing

Start Here:

1 – I want to use this program to occasionally share a set of photos and documents?
or,
2 – I want this program to store my photos, edit my photos and allow me to make photo books and other photo-related projects?

If you answered yes to #1:

  • How much data will you be sharing? Are you willing to pay for it?
  • How secure do you want your online account to be?
  • Do you want it to sync from your desktop application?
  • Is anyone in your family or peer group already using a program?
    (You can ask them to train and support you!)

If you answered yes to #2:

  • Do you need the program to search on tags and keywords
  • Do you need facial recognition functionality?
  • Do you want to upload from your iPhone, Android phone, tablet?
  • Do you want it to sync from your desktop application?
  • How secure do you want your online account to be?
  • Do you need the program to accept Video?
  • Is the quality of paper and binding of photo books important?

Your success with any sharing program is directly related to your technical skill level. Choose a program with the functionality you need and stay far away from the bells and whistles. Use the following matrix to fit your user profile with a program, and stick with it!
