Share Your Digital Photos

Have you just got back from your dream holiday? Did you see the Seven Wonders of the World? Did you welcome a new baby into your family? Was there a wedding or a family get-together? Then, you must have undoubtedly taken loads and loads of pictures. With digital cameras it is possible to do so! Now, what would you like to do with all the amassed pictures? Surely you would like to share them with your family and friends? Yes, most certainly, I do! If so, what are the best ways to share your digital pictures?

Well, you can take on any one of the four methods to share your digital photoswith your loved ones:

1. Print your photos

2. Email your photos

3. Upload your photos to a website

4. Store your photos on CD and DVD

1.Printing your Photos

From the time camera had come into existence, people have made prints from their film. With digital camera also you can make prints, but you need a color printer and some quality printing paper .There is no need for film processing anymore.

There are 3 options for printing digital images-

a. You can print it in your color printer at home - inkjet printers are good enough.

b. You can submit your photos to an nline photo print website and they will take prints and deliver them at your doorstep.

c. You can visit a local photo shop who will print the pictures for you.

2. Emailing the Photos

To share the photos you can email them too. But a 10 MB of email attachment will take a long time for you to upload and for the recipient to download. So you have to resize your photos and send them by email.

3. Uploading your Photos to a Website

A good alternative to emailing photos is to upload your photos to a website and then simply email the website link to your friends or family. By this, you avoid the problem of huge email attachments. You can also set up your own web site to host your own picture gallery!

4. Storing your Photos on CD and DVD

Finally, you can save your photos in your computer and then burn them onto CDs and DVDs by using a CD burning software. Since the cds can store 650 MB and dvds 4 GB you do manage to get an incredible amount of storage space for your photo collection. But then, you do need to have a CD player or DVD player to view the photos.

Now choose whichever option is convenient for you and share it with your family and friends! Happy Sharing! :)
