There are many different ways to share digital images. You can learn more about some of the easiest and most popular methods below.
If you want to share a photo with a small group of people, you can send it as an email attachment. It's important to realize, however, that email isn't a very convenient photo-sharing tool. Depending on your email provider and Internet connection speed, you may need to resize your images to be small enough to send as attachments. Resizing will also make it easier for your recipients to download and view photos.
Whether you need to share one photo or an entire album, Facebook makes it easy to share photos with several people at the same time.
One of the most popular ways to share photos from a mobile device, Instagram allows you to edit photos and apply a variety of filters.
Another good option for mobile sharing, Twitter makes it easy to share photos with any post.
If you want to share a lot of images, Flickr is one of the best photo-hosting sites on the Web. With 1000GB (1 terabyte) of free storage space, Flickr allows you to store thousands of photos online. You'll also have the option to share some photos publicly while making others private.
If you just want to post a single image on the Web, there are a variety of image-sharing sites, such as Imgur and TinyPic. These services allow you to upload an image and then share it with others by sending them a link.
