From classic Flickr to new apps like Lifecake, technology offers a number of ways to share images online with total security with friends and family With smartphones equipped with better cameras, many accumulate hundreds of images spread between mobile devices, computer and social networks. The forecast is that in 2017 will take more than a trillion photographs. There are no problems to see where to stay, because this issue is solved with services in the cloud as Dropbox, but how to share them with family and friends. The ideal tool to do this should be easy to use for both uploaders and viewers, and above all, take the necessary measures to protect the privacy and security of shared images. Here are some of the best ways to share photos online with friends and family, like Flickr, Facebook and Google Photos. The classics: Flickr and the Google cloud When it comes to sharing photos online, the first name that comes to the head of many users is Flickr, one of the most veteran online image management services on the Internet. Flickr is a tool designed around photos and offers a wide variety of options and utilities aimed at its storage and management, as well as being able to share them easily with other users. In addition, a free Flickr account offers a fairly generous range of services compared to other similar platforms: 1TB of disk space and all the privacy options required to share snapshot albums with just the people you want. These settings should be reviewed to make sure the album is private before uploading photos. Images shared on Flickr are stored in full resolution, an ideal feature if you want to take them to print. In addition, they can be shared with other Flickr users as well as others who do not have an account and who can enter the album via an email link sent to them. Do you need to put order in your photos before sharing them? With these apps it's easier! In addition to Flickr, another of the more classic options is Google, especially since it has launched its Google Photos service. This service is the heir of what was formerly known as Picasa Web Albums. It offers unlimited accommodation for images below 16 MP, that is, the vast majority of snapshots made by non-professional photographers. Google Photos is very interesting for its ease of use and even for its backup function, since it can be configured in a few steps so that all images, both PC and mobile, are uploaded automatically thanks to the client Desktop and the Google Photos app. Another very useful feature is the possibility of sharing a same album with more people, perfect to gather in it all the snapshots of a family celebration The easiest: Facebook Apart from the most classic solutions, Facebook is the platform chosen by many to share photos. But look! It is necessary to review in detail the privacy options of the social network, if it is intended to be used to share private images. To share photos on Facebook with a certain level of privacy (accessible only to the group of people that one decides), it is essential to have contacts well organized by groups, according to the degree of intimacy with each one; Because it is not the same thing to share snapshots with co-workers than to do it with family members. If you have the contacts well classified, in Facebook it is very easy to create a photo album and share it with the group that interests you most. Thus, it is possible to upload to the social network all the images of the most recent family celebration and share them only with the family members who have contact as in this network and who have previously been categorized as such in the contact list. However, if it's about sharing a child's photos, the simplest option is to create a scrapbook. This special album of Facebook appears when a child is added in the section of "Family and relationships" within the personal profile of Facebook. From that moment, the social network gives the option to open a special album where they will be adding all the images in which the child is tagged. Only the person who created the album and the ones authorized by the album can be labeled, and each photo may have its own individual privacy setting. Other options: Photobucket and Lifecake Although Flickr, Google and Facebook are the best known ways to share snapshots, that does not mean that they are the only ones. There are other interesting alternatives that deserve at least one mention. One of them is Photobucket, an online photo storage service that is highly recommended for hard copies. It does not give much space compared to others (2 GB per free account, plus another 8 GB if the mobile app is installed), but greatly facilitates the printing of snapshots and even buying products with an image printed on them , And allows you to share photos in high resolution and create collaborative albums with simplicity. One last option to share images is Lifecake, an app that lets you share photos of your children in a safe environment, gathering in a single place the snapshots that have scattered by Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox or the album of the smartphone. The images are categorized automatically in chronological order, which makes it possible to see how the child grows and evolves through all the snapshots that have been saved. The application is free, is available for iPhone and Android mobile and provides 10 GB of space with free account.
