Photo Online Storage

Digital photo online storage can be the answer to your digital photo needs. It can help to organize your photos, free up precious computer space,and allow you to find any photo you need with ease.

Many "image hosts" are now available so you have to investigate to make sure you are getting what you want. Be aware that some plans are free and others are a paid service. Usually the features for each vary. So, read the fine print and also look at the following questions that you should consider in your decision.

Digital Photo Online Storage and Hosting

  1. What image format do they support? jpeg,gif and png are the three to look for.
  2. Does it allow you to browse through the images that you just uploaded?
  3. How much storage space does it offer?
  4. How many images are allowed?
  5. What is the largest file size allowed? If it is small you will need to change the size of your picture file before you even download it. This can become an extra step and a tedious one at that if you have numerous pictures to load.
  6. Does the service provide thumbnails? Meaning does it provide a thumbnail view of what is on each topic or album and allow you to print it or burn it to a CD?
  7. How many images can you uplaod at one time?
  8. Can you resize your images?
  9. Does the digital photo online storage provide extra services such as traditional photo printing, photo galleries, calenders, etc.?
  10. Can you email photos to friends and family?
  11. Can you easily rename your images?
