TRAVEL with pat and lew

on-line photo galleries

Posted by Lew Weinstein on February 22, 2007

It always adds to the fun to send photos to your friends and family.

When we took a picture of Greg Landis in the Tour de France at Carcassonne, we couldn’t wait to show everyone.

Same with our incredible apartment and the baths in Budapest.

Emailing individual photos is possible, but there are drawbacks. The files are large, so you’re limited in the number of pictures you can attach. Some people can’t open attached files, for security reasons.

A great answer is the on-line photo galleries like Snapfish, Kodak, and Shutterfly. We use Snapfish, so I’ll describe that, but I think the others are similar.

(1) set up an account, which is free.

(2) create an album and give it a name, say “Incredible Budapest.”

(3) follow the straightforward directions to select the photos you want to include in the album from files on your computer.

(4) add captions to each photo and your album is complete.

(5) don’t like something? It’s easy to change.

To share your album with your friends and family, type in the email addresses and click SHARE. Each new email address is automatically added to your address book, so next time you can just select from your prior list.

Those who get your email can, after they register, view your photos and, if they like, order prints for 12 cents each.

Our experience is that small albums with 10-12 photos are best received.
