@BetterSherm:  How are you hoping to get these images and in what quality. If they send photos to you by email or through facebook, the quality will be low. If you want high quality photos, you may have to get on some photosharing site. But then you would still need to ask people to go to that site… probably by email. Another option would be to mail flashdrives to these people and ask them to send them back full of the pictures.

I asked quite a few guests for pics, and some emailed me zip files and others burnt them onto disks. It worked well.

I went to a wedding last summer and they sent around a Dropbox account for us to add pictures to. It worked fine for me!

I think Flickr pools work really well. But if your guests aren’t up to it, then they could just zip/email them to you.

That’s a good question. I’ve been wondering when or if we’d get some pictures, but I won’t ask. My husband’s family gave us a lot, but I have yet to get ones from my side.

I know you don’t want to create an account but shutterfly allows you to creat a photoshare site which you can password lock.  That is what we are doing and are providing our guests with the password

I would create a album on photago.com and send the direct link to the guest. The guest do not have to create a user or anything like that. 
What was the problem with the sites you think? What is the horror stories about?

I think the sharing site is the best way of doing ot.

We used Dropbox.com to get our pictures, and it worked really, really well (granted, we only opened the invitation to join to our parents and bridal party).  I guess you could email people and just ask for photos, but it could be an inconvenience to have them email them since most email servers only let you send a handful at a time.

@BetterSherm: I think it work fine. One good thing with Photago is that you can only deleate the photos you have uploaded your self so it won´t be a problem that guest delete photos that other guest have uploaded. YOu as owner of the album can delete all photos do. 

I think it works fine.
