I want to create something to give out to guests with a website that they can go on to dump their pictures so that we can get guest pictures as well. I know with dropbox you have to get THEIR email, so I’d rather avoid having to collect everyone’s emails all night. Does anybody know if flicker or photobucket or any of those sites allow anybody to upload photos?
Basically, I just want to give them a card with a website that they can go to to upload their photos – anybody know of any sites I can use to do this?

You could use a flickr group, then anyone with a flickr account can add their photos to your group.

I’m trying to get something more universal that EVERYONE can upload their photos to. There’s got to be a website out there that lets ANYBODY upload into a specific folder, right?

I created a Flickr account and then set up the e-mail uploading feature – so I can just provide my guests with an e-mail address and if they just e-mail their pictures to that address, it will be automatically uploaded to the Flickr account.

I’m not sure you’d find a site at this point that wouldn’t make you register to upload (since sites LOVE that!), but I will echo the Flickr suggestions. I have a pro account and never have regretted doing it.

I created a Share Site on shutterfly.
(I really wanted to use Picasa because of the "download album" capability but I think it’s a little too complicated a site for some.)
Shutterfly is so easy. You can create a unique URL. (I used our "celebrity hybrid" name for ours.)
There are no upload limits per month like some other sites. Guests can upload video as well.
A lot of people I know have shutterfly accounts but I created an account and gave out the username/password so nobody would have to sign up for their own account if they didn’t want one.
I collected a ton of pictures this way!

OOOOOh – I never thought to just create a generic username and password to give out. FABULOUS IDEA!!

@bunnyfoofoo: It worked out really well. (I made a gmail account.)
I never got around to making cards to hand out to people at the wedding. But I had everybody’s emails cause we did online RSVPs.
So I just sent out an email to everyone after the wedding with the website and logon info.
