Sharing is Fun

Pictures are like memories: They're better when you share them with someone else.

And people are sharing their memorable photos more than ever, using online albums and personal weblogs. With so many easy-to-use hosting services available for free, it's a snap to start your own online diary or photo album. We'll introduce you to a way you can share your pictures online.


The world of weblogs

Weblogs, or blogs, are sites that contain short, frequently updated posts arranged in a journal-like style. Most weblogs let you share personal thoughts and links, as well as photos. They have become so popular that an entire online blogging community has been born, complete with its own lingo. There are hundreds of build-your-own software tools that enable people to share their weblogs quickly and easily. Clearly, online sharing has hit the big time.

Tips for emailing photos

No matter which method you use to send your photos, you'll always want to follow these simple guidelines.

  • Verify. Make sure your recipient uses an e-mail program (like Microsoft Outlook) that allows him or her to view attachments. If you're not sure, test it out.
  • Send small files. Files that are under 500K work best. And an image resolution of 72 dpi is just fine. Anything larger is overkill and can take too long to open.
  • Limit your attachments to one or two. They will load faster when your friend or family member opens the e-mail message.

Before you sharing the photos, first you need to know how to transfer the photos from your camera to your computer.
