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!
