Walmart has a neat little chart of quite a few free photo sharing places.

Walmart itself will do free unlimited space too if you buy at least one photo per year. I might look in to that too and share the membership with my wife so that Walmart doesn’t hit the kill switch and wipe out an account with thousands of photos.


Shutterfly.

I’ve had a Shutterfly account for a long while. I am going to probably upload more to it in the near future. They have unlimited free space too as far as I can tell, and prints from there can go to (or at least could last time I logged in many months ago) Target for printing. However, like some other places, they are focused on making the uploader in to a customer rather than allowing the photo uploader to sell stuff to others. You can share photos, but there are limitations to that.

I suspect that if Shutterfly ever lets artists/content creators/photographers start selling their stuff on there, like Zazzle and Cafepress do, it’d be the hands down best place to do this sort of stuff. However, I don’t see that happening anytime soon… unfortunately.

http://www.snapfish.com/ – I’ll give it a try… Hope they have something as cool as Winkflash’s transporter, but something that won’t break. I need something like that because manually uploading each photo one at a time would take a very long time for me or anyone else looking in to this sort of service that has literally thousands of photos!

I DO know they have some problems on high res side…

I just started uploading a little over 3000 photos to Snapfish… let’s see how this works. I’m going to walk away from the computer now for a few hours. In theory, when I get back, it should be done or still whirring away in the upload process.


still shopping around for free image sharing sites…

I’m still shopping around for free image sites since Winkshare’s Transporter stopped working for me…

Picasso only has 1 gig free…

Tried T35 before… it’s an ok server, but they used to put in tons of ads. Also, not sure it’s good to use for simple photo sharing.

Now this is interesting… Unlimited Photos? Going to have to lookin to this one but probably won’t use it since it’s not free…
http://www.smugmug.com/photos/best-photo-sharing/

Unlimited storage.

We’ll never ask you to choose which photos or videos matter most, because storage at SmugMug is unlimited.

So is traffic. Become a rock star and invite millions to view your amazing self.

Use us as safe backup and retrieve your photos anytime.

Call me a cheapskate or whatever, but someone should offer this stuff for free… Why, mainly because for photographers, it’s really going to suck when they die and their estate accidentally reformats the hard drive or something and blamo – AN ENTIRE LIFE OF ARTWORK IS GONE simply because someone forgot to pay the monthly bill for one of these online places…


Winkflash Transporter has stopped working…

I get an error that Winkflash Transporter has stopped working whenever I try to run it. Email from support was less than useful – they say to just use the individual file uploader. That’s not a solution. I have done some googling and found that Blinkflash worked under Linux a while back. Wonder if anyone’s come up with a similar creative solution? I think I may have uploaded too many files at once with Transporter or something and am causing some sort of memory leak problem that causes it to stop instantly before it really gets going. Error message when Winkflash stops working.
