5 Tools for Digital Photo Albums

The Online Album

If you're looking for an easy way to share your photos then you'd be well-served to check out the variety of online photo albums available. They're simple to use and they allow you to access your photos from anywhere you can get an Internet connection.

The first step is to register with the program of your choosing. It's an easy process that'll allow you to upload your photos. Depending on the site, you may have a limitation on how much space you can use. Typically, the free sites have more restrictions than the subscription-based ones.

After you've uploaded your photos and organized them by date, put them into folders and e-mail them to your friends and family. That way you can have your photos in a localized place without having to worry about searching your computer's hard drive for them. Plus, you can share your pictures with anyone you wish [source: Middleton Public Library].
