The Best Photo Uploading and Sharing Sites and Services

  1. Cloud Storage Services

One of the best ways to share photos privately with your friends and family is to use a cloud storage service. Three popular and reputable cloud storage services include Google Drive, One Drive, and Dropbox. Google Drive offers up to 15GB of free storage while OneDrive offers 5GB and Dropbox provides 2GB storage. You can create a photo folder on each of these services and share the photos with your family and friends using a link or on a user-to-user basis. To use these services, you will need an active email and also have access to the emails of those you want to share the photos with. They make for a very affordable and easy way to share photos.

  1. Facebook

Facebook is a popular social media app that allows photo uploads and sharing with loved ones and the public. You can upload an unlimited number of photos and easily share them with select people. With over 2.5 billion users, chances are virtually everyone that you know or that matters to you use the app. You can also create a private album and share it with your preferred users.

  1. Google Photos

Google photos is one of the most effective means of uploading and sharing images with select people, provided they have a Google account. The storage capacity is quite expansive (though it no longer offers unlimited storage) and its powerful photo recognition algorithm allows you to search specific photos by typing select keywords like ” Road trip with friends”.  With Google Photos, you can create shared libraries with a specific user or share photo folders with several users.

  1. AirDrop

Apple users can testify to AirDrop’s ease of sharing. It is exclusively available for Apple users. However, it is best equipped for sharing single photos instead of a large number of folders. You can use AirDrop to beam albums, journals, events, photos, slideshows, and others. As such, you can share memories of specific events. On the flip side, the more the number of photos being shared, the longer it takes to load.

  1. Web Services

Some websites also offer photo uploading and sharing features. A good example is iPhoto which lets you upload photos for safe-keeping and to share with select users. You can keep your images away from the prying eyes of the public here or you can store them for later use. To get started, you will need to create an account and it is easy as ABC from there. Simply click the upload button and automatically upload photos from your mobile device or computer. It is one of the best out there. On top of that, it is absolutely free to use!

The Bottom Line

Sharing and uploading photos has never been easier! Whether you want to create a professional portfolio, share intimate moments with loved ones or simply want to preserve certain memories, these photo-sharing services are your best bet!
