  • Jansie Blom, December 4, 2007

    wow, that’s a lot! sheesh… could you explain the advantages of using a photo sharing site for your website or blog, or whatever you wanna call it?

  • Hi Steven, thanks for this timely and wonderful resource.

    I have been looking for more image resources for my blog posts. Kudos and thumbs up!

  • Adam Donkus, December 4, 2007

    Awesome list of Photosharing sites Steven. How about Facebook for photo sharing? Flickr is were I host all my pics, but I did play around with Facebook for that as well.

  • Wayne Liew, December 4, 2007

    I use Flickr only and I should say that it is the best that I’ve used. I find the photos I used on my blog there as well since they categorize their photos with different CC license.

  • Brad, December 4, 2007

    Your dotPhoto link goes to Phanfare

  • WordPress developer, December 4, 2007

  • Madhur Kapoor, December 4, 2007

    Awesome list . There are many which i havent even heard of . Mainly i try Flickr and Photobucket .

  • Vandelay Design, December 4, 2007

    One of the main benefits to using these services is that you aren’t using your own disk space and bandwidth. Another advantage is that some of these services, Flickr especially, have a lot of features and functions that you can easily integrate into your site/blog with little work.

    I don’t have much experience with Facebook, and I didn’t even think of them. How was your experience with it?

    Thanks for letting me know about the bad link. It’s fixed now.

  • Andrew, December 4, 2007

    And this is probably only 1/10 of the number of photo sharing sites out there!

  • Vandelay Design, December 4, 2007

    Yeah, I think you’re right Andrew. I’m kind of amazed that anyone uses those that aren’t the major competitors.

  • Utube, December 4, 2007

  • Cuttie, March 4, 2009

    I think you can add Joomeo (http://www.joomeo.com) to this impressive list.

    For me, probably the best “soft like” web based online photo sharing website.

  • Karen, November 21, 2009

    There is a new photo sharing site @ http://www.theeasyview.com It’s surprisingly simple and easy to use. You can conveniently upload, store, and share all your photos on the site. It has an auto image gallery in which you can place text descriptions to each photo as well as adding security passwords for each album or profile link. Give it a try. I did and I love it!
