Digital camera technology has advanced steadily over the past decade. Digital cameras now offer professional grade image and video capturing in a compact, easy-to-use device. With this improved quality comes larger image and video files that can take up a lot of storage space on your computer’s hard drive, diminishing your computer’s speed. You could purchase an external hard drive to store your pictures and video, but in order to share your files with friends or upload them to the web, you have to access your external hard drive multiple times. Many digital camera users are now turning to free online storage and sharing spaces for their image and video files.
With a free Flickr account, you can upload two videos and up to 300MB worth of photos every calendar month. You can also share files with groups or individuals; edit and organize your photos; transfer images between Flickr and Facebook; comment on and save photos you find; and order prints, posters, books, and more at a low cost.
Snapfish’s free membership guarantees you unlimited photo storage. This site is a scrapbooker’s dream with easy photo editing and slideshow features; free photo sharing; and customizable print projects including cards, posters, calendars, and more.
