I think you have to give guests your personal login and password. If you want to keep the accounts separate, you’ll have to pay for another account.  I don’t think there’s any way to hide photos from other people who login with the same username; flickr can’t distinguish between them and you, unfortunately.

I’ve been trying to figure out the second question, as I already have a flickr account, and wished I could grant "certain access" levels to the guest. After playing around, I can’t find such, so anyone that logs on to my account, will see all the pictures I have set private for me.

I hope someone can prove me wrong, but I have come to the conclusion I will just make a new account for it. After all, $25 for the year is worth it to me to get those photos! ๐Ÿ™‚  I’d spend that in blank cd’s for them all anyways!

I had a bad experience with shutterfly, so I’m not using them again. (but thats just me)

I don’t know what their sharing capabilities are now though, so I can’t compare! Sorry!

Let me know what you come up with though! Oh, one of the things I really like about flickr, is that it reads with Blurb.com, so you can download your "sets" of pictures right into the book software.

I ordered a ton of pictures through them not too long ago, and when I got them back, they had a crazy orange/pink undertone, and the images were soft looking. It looked like we all went fake tanning! I wasn’t happy, as it came out to 3 full packs of pictures. I called them, and they gave me the run around a little, but finally said they would reprint them for me. Apparently there is some setting that I needed to click, and even after they told me about it, I couldn’t find it.

I just wasn’t happy with the quality of the paper/pictures, so I went back to whcc.com or ofoto.com for ordering prints. All my photo storage is on flickr though. I know that some people love shutterfly, and everyone has their own preferences & experiences!

Don’t know if it’s easy, but that’s my game plan. ๐Ÿ™‚ I figured I’d make a new account, and that way everyone can just see those seperately, and I will have to download, then reupload into my first account.

I haven’t found a way to “mass download” from flickr, just having to go one by one (boooo!). I don’t know if there’s a way to transfer to accounts though.

With my luck, there’s no easy way of doing it, but I always seem to find the difficult way of doing things ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think you do have to re-download each photo individually. Alternatively, you could just create a flickr group and upload all wedding photos there. That way, guests who already have a flickr account don’t have to log in to the new one, and all the photos can be organized according to how you (the administrator) want them – I think. I’ve actually never used a flickr group before.

Oh groups…there’s something to think about (and to postpone actually working)

this might not help for people w/ a lot of photos, but you can upload via email too:

http://flickr.com/account/uploadbyemail/

for downloading, there are a couple of options for mass downloading

flickrbackup: 

http://sunkencity.org/flickrbackup/

flickrdown (pc only):

http://greggman.com/pages/flickrdown.htm

flickr downloadr (website is not in english, but presumably the link after the word download would be what you’d want):

http://janten.com/2006/01/31/neues-spielzeug/

 

i haven’t tried any of these, but i may give flickrbackup a try. if anyone else has/does, their feedback would be great.

also, i recently looked into all the photo sites before picking flickr. here are my reasons for going w/ flickr pro:

photobucket:

-if you don’t upgrade, there are a lot of ads on the site.

-even if you do upgrade, there is a 5G maximum (1G if you don’t), which may be a problem if all your friends upload their photos

-they have a bandwidth limit, which might be a problem if a bunch of your friends look at your photos in the same month

-bulk uploading only possible with pro account

-doesn’t allow downloading the original sized image 

picasa:

-not compatible with macs

-has a storage limit (1GB for free account, 6GB for $20 account) 

snapfish, kodak, etc:

-anything that requires you to create a login will be a problem for my mom to view

-most do not allow downloading the original full size image 

 

i went with flickr because it has

-unlimited storage

-unlimited upload (with pro account)

-anyone can download full size image (with pro account)

-a lot of upload programs (compatible with macs)

-user friendly
