Photo Sharing Tutorials
(and building your own photo website)
A favorite method for creating web galleries from photos is to use jAlbum, found at www.jalbum.net. They have a great application for easily building your galleries, then uploading to jAlbum’s hosting area, or to your own website. You can even change the look of your gallery in seconds just by selecting a different "skin". This is the application used by Spokane Camera Club to generate its online galleries.

even a built-in uploader for sending files to Flickr or
Smugmug (more on Smugmug later). Flickr is a Yahoo
company so will need a Yahoo ID. Yahoo IDs are also
needed to take full advantage of the Spokane Camera Club
Yahoo Group so it is highly recommended to get one. To
get a Yahoo ID go to this page
and sign up, it's free.

free software tool that allows you to create a screensaver
and wallpaper with either your own photos or your favorite
photos downloaded from webshots.com. Webshots is a
great site for browsing any of their almost 600 million
photos from around the world. The main downside to
Webshots is that the site is so busy that is sometimes gets
-- More photo sharing websites at about.com. About.com
has information on lots of subjects, including an area on
photography. The photo sharing websites link lists a
number of popular websites for displaying your photos.
Some of these sites are free and some aren't.
