    I like flickr, I don’t know about picasa though.

    I like most google products better, just because I’ve just kinda gravitated to them. I ended up going with Flickr because it seemed easier to use on guests.

    I like picasa for ease of use.  That is what we will be using.

    I haven’t used the online portion of picasa (just the photo editing software) so I can’t speak for that. My sister and my photographer friends all use flickr, though. I’d check and make sure there isn’t an upload limit, though. At one point (I don’t know if this is still true) there was only a certain number of photos you could upload per day with the free version.

    We’re going to go with Picassa.  I haven’t figured out all of the details yet, but from my understanding, it’s super cheap to buy 100 or more extra gigabytes of storage for your guests.  I like that it’s really easy to download the actual image files from Picassa, so all of our guests will easily have access to photos taken by other guests.

    Can anyone tell me which photo sharing website would be easiest for every user?? I know that picasa looks like it has many amazing features, but which is easier for the guest? Not everyone is computer savvy and that worries me !! @@

    We actually ordered business cards from vistaprint that had all of the information guests needed and are putting them on our programs. This worked well for us because I got 250 of them for $15 including shipping and they are really a cute wedding-y design. I can’t wait to use them. I was inspired by @krissycake (fellow bee though she hasn’t been here in awhile) who recommended using vistaprint.

    The information I put on the cards reads:

    “”Snapped a great photo? Share it with us

    It’s easy! Just go to FLICKR.com to upload & view

    USERNAME:__________PASSWORD_______(I created them especially for the wedding & our guests)

    How to: go to FLICKR.com, log on and click “Upload Photo & Video”. Then select your photo file, upload & add a caption if you’d like.

    Or, if you took photos on a Smartphone or iPhone, visit m.flickr.com to upload and share from your mobile device””

    I am not sure how many of our older guests will use it …but all of our friends and my tech savy cousins will 🙂

    Please never give your guests a username/password to your pictures, because once one well meaning but technically inept guest deletes all your photos, you’ll be wishing you hadn’t done it.

    Both Picasaweb and Flickr have a feature that will let you create an email address for uploading to your gallery. Simply give that email address to your guests and tell them to email all the pictures there.

    <bias>Personally? I’m using Picasa Web since browsing whole galleries is much easier, user interface wise.</bias>

    okay so you just have to give them the email address..

     i would be worried about giving them my log on and password too.  like if they see a picture they dont like of themselves or something good idea @ejoyb

    I would really like to print that on the cards for our guests 🙂
