What is photo sharing?

Photo sharing is just like swapping snapshots with your friends, only online. Flickr is the most popular photo sharing service right now, which is why it's featured in the above video. DPL has two Flickr accounts (dplwesternhistory and dplteens). Flickr is not the only photosharing site out there, though. Wikipedia has a list of photo sharing sites which includes other popular sits such as Shutterfly, Picasa, and Snapfish.

See Common Craft's "Photo Sharing in Plain English".

Why do I care?

Photos are powerful. They communicate feelings, thoughts, concepts and ideas. Online photo sharing provides the opportunity for people to share their photos with their friends and family throughout the world.

How do I get credits?

  1. Set up a free account on a photo sharing site
  2. Upload photos to your page and make sure to set the permissions to public so everyone can see them.
