(Newser) – Yahoo is shuttering its popular photo sharing site in September, but never fear—there are plenty of alternative places to dock your digital pics. The Journal surveys the field:

  • Kodak Gallery is the easiest to navigate, but lacks editing tools and requires a yearly purchase commitment.
  • Shutterfly is totally, no-strings-attached free, but it's simple to a fault. Users can't upload videos or submit images from a mobile device.

  • Snapfish wins points for its large-format slide shows, but also has a mandatory purchase policy, and some annoying sharing restrictions.
  • Flickr remains the current darling of the photo sharing scene with progressive, sophisticated sharing options and generous high-resolution allowances, as well as an engaging community.
  • Photobucket, like Flickr, offers more advanced organizational features, and a fun "Remix" tool which allows users to create multimedia slide shows from their photo albums. Happy shooting!
