I used flickr. What I did was create a new email account ([email protected]) and created a flickr account with that email addy. That way I didn’t care if our guests had the user name and password. Months after our wedding, I changed the password.

Here is what our photosharing card said:

When did you give out these cards? At the wedding? In the invitations?

No prob! We had a welcome BBQ 2 days before the wedding, so I gave them out then (in their gift bags). Otherwise I probably would have given them out with the favors at the wedding. And maybe send them out again with the thank you cards (to remind them).

I would go a different route than Ms Sushi but that is because my friends are pranksters that would take the password and log in to my account and change/delete all the uploaded pictures (after backing up, of course).

Flickr (and Picasa) both have email upload features:

For Flickr, go to http://www.flickr.com/account/uploadbyemail/?from=email

and tell your guests to email to the address listed like so:

For Picasa Web Albums, go to http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/settings# and set your email upload secret word. Then give your guests the email address for uploading.

 

The benefit of this method is that pretty much everybody is accustomed to email pictures anyway so it makes it easy to share. 

I hope this helps!

I’m using picassa through gmail.

When you log into your gmail account, click on More in the top menu and then click Photos.  It will open up a new window with your Picassa account.

Click on Settings on the very top menu.

Type in the name you want displayed (ie. His Name & Her Name) in the Nickname field.

Under gallery URL it shows you the web address for your web gallery.  If you don’t like it, you can click the link to change the web address.

Select “Allow me to upload photos by email.”

Choose a secret word.  The email address displayed is where your guests can email their photos to.

What we’re doing to make it easier is creating an easy to remember email address on our wedding website that will forward to the Picassa email automatically.  We also created a subdomain on our website that automatically forwards to the Picassa gallery.
