I’d like to share our wedding photos with friends and family online, but I’m not sure which website to use. I’d like something that is easy to upload a bunch of pictures quickly in their original size, so that they will look high quality if guests want to download them or print them out themselves. It would be extra great if someone could recommend a website where guest could look at the pictures and also buy prints to be delivered to them if they want.

I’ve been thhinking about doing the same as well, and will probably use Picasa. I would love to hear what others have used that worked for them!

We used Winkflash. It is free. It allows for unlimited uploads and downloads. And unlike many other free sites, it permits downloads of the full hi res images.

smugmug is great. Just google them. They have several options, but it is a pay site.

We’re using Photobucket and are sharing the website and password to our guests (in the wedding program) so they can also upload pictures that they take that day. We really hope guests use it!

FYI Winkflash is software you download and doesn’t work with Macs.
If you require guests to use a login and password it will greatly diminish the number of photos people upload.

We didn’t download any software for Winkflash. And at least one friend who has a Mac uploaded things to it.
I understand what you are saying about guests not wanting to get an ID or password. At the same time, we didn’t really want to have our photos visible to everyone on the Internet. I’m a lawyer, and get most of my business from my professional website. I wanted to make sure that when my clients went searching for me, they got my professional site, not my wedding photos. Our compromise was to give our guests the ID and password we had set up for the account. Yes, this means that they would theoretically have the ability to delete photos or otherwise vandalize the site. However, we didn’t plan to invite anyone likely to do that. 😉

Sorry, I was looking at their Transporter product. WinkFlash’s interface seems a bit intimidating. How many photos did you get? Do they allow video files?
I agree that privacy is important. The link I provided is not public either. In fact the owner gets to delete any files before they get added to the private gallery.

I adore Google Picasa for this.
You can upload photos in full resolution and guests can download whole albums with the click of one button.
I know a lot of people use flickr or shutterfly…but then guests have to click on each picture and download them individually. That’s a pain in the butt!

Still use Picassa, but also had a photo-sharing app that stored the pics taken from everyone’s cell phones in an online album.

Are you talking about photos guests have taken and supplied to you, or the photos from a professional? If it’s a professional I’d caution you that you need permission from the photographer before uploading to a third party proofing site.

Most professional photographers give or sell rights to CLIENTS to print/keep their files, but that release does not extend to anyone who attended the wedding. You likely do not have rights to upload your professional images to sites like that and guests do not have rights to download or print them.

I use Photago.com. You and the guests can upload and download photos. They also have apps for Android and Iphone so guests can upload from their smart phones as well.
