Are there any websites (other than Picasa) for uploading photos from which you can directly email selected photos to your friends ?
I just thought about a very cool idea.
If you use Dropbox you can synch some of those pictures to your Public Photo folder, this folder isn't very public itself since only people you share the folder's link to will be able to browse and download it.
So what you do is upload you pic, and doing that with Dropbox is a breeze, get the link and email the link to your friends. That way you can send a very small email which is much faster than sending an email full of pictures. Your friends will thank you for not taking a lot of space from their Inbox.
Pictures in your your Dropbox folder will remain there untill you delete them.
If you don't have a Dropbox acccount and feel liek trying it out, please use this link to create your account: http://db.tt/HGa54lv
It will give both of us an extra 250 MBs of space available everywhere and whenever we want to be filled with whatever we want :)
If you are using an iPhone you can try Instagram, it is a free social photography app that will let you share your pictures directly to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr, Posterous, Foursquare and will give you the option to send your picture through you default email address.
Just download the app, configure it and take a picture then tap on the "..." buton and select the option that applies.
My favorite is image shack. You can find image shack at http://imageshack.us/
Once you've uploaded the photo, underneath the photo thumbnail you will see "Share your image". Choose the last one "send in email", then your done!
