Photo Sharing

Photo sharing tools work as a combination of things. They serve as online storage spaces for photos, with the ability to tag and organize each photo, as well as publishing your images to whomever you want. Other users who review images in these photo sharing web sites have the opportunity to leave comments for the photographer on any image that has been made available. Some photo sharing web sites offer the ability to edit your photos online, make notes, post your photos to a blog and a variety of other features. 
Each photo sharing service is different, but they all offer upload forms with the ability to browse to images on your own computer, in order to select the images that you would like to share.

  1. I loved photo sharing. Sometimes, we do not realise that we are sharing with the whole world. A reminder from me is that we should keep our photo privacy so that in future the will be no cases such as other party misuse our photo by creating controversial issue.
