    Snapfish lowered prices for downloading a high resolution image!!!! It's now only 25 cents for the first one and 5 cents for each additional picture. Now that it is so inexpensive, this will probably be the option I use. I will only need to download the really good pictures that I would use for projects.

    People who have 35mm cameras can mail their film into snapfish. They will mail them prints & upload their images to the website. My mom always uses this option so I can see her pictures online. It would also be useful if you pass out those disposable cameras at the wedding. I also plan on buying a 35mm underwater camera, so it will be nice to be able to post those pictures too.

      I like Snapfish a lot. You can even pick up your prints from a Walgreens.

            You are right. They will print them off at target. I think they will only do glossy though. I like matte.

              I contated Kodak easy share & this is the info they gave me. It doesn't look like guests would be able to add their photos w/out creating their own easy share album.

              Thank you for contacting the KODAK Gallery Customer Service Team. We appreciate your email to the Gallery regarding how to share photos with
              others. Sharing photos from your web site is very simple. To share photos from
              your web page, follow these steps:

              1. You, the owner, upload pictures to your account at the Gallery.

              2. Share the photo to yourself by putting your own email address in the
              "To" section. Be sure to uncheck the box that requires your friends to sign in
              from the invitation page.
              3. You will receive an email notification of your shared album. The body of
              the message will contain the URL of your album.

              4. Place the URL on your site and it will link to your shared album.


              Thank you for contacting the KODAK Gallery Customer Service Team.

              We appreciate your email back to us in regards to your shared photos. If you
              require your friends to sign in to view your albums, your album will be saved
              under a "My Friends' Albums" link. This will basically save the shared album so
              you are able to view that album at any time you would like. This will only apply
              to people that you have shared that albums with; unless that person shares that
              album to someone else.

              Shared albums (albums that you did not create yourself) cannot be edited,
              copied, downloaded or deleted. However, you can view photos, make comments and
              order Prints from shared albums.

              The exception is that you can make cropping adjustments to shared photos from
              the Cart by following the steps below:

              1. Place the photo in the Cart.
              2. Click “Adjust Cropping” under the photo.
              3. With “Adjust Cropping”, you can:
              • Turn Zoom & Trim on/off.
              • Turn Kodak Perfect Touch on/off.
              • Zoom in and out.
              • Change the positioning of the photo within the preview frame.

              NOTE: These changes are only applied to the photos within the Cart, not to the
              photos within the album.

                I added this to my computer & really didn't like it. Everytime I try to open an attachment now, it wants to use easy share to open it. But then it will stall and sometimes not open. I uninstalled it.

                I think it's better to avoid something that requires guest to download a program (Picasa, Kodak easy share) and use one like snapfish or shuterfly.

                  I know I am really going to sound like I'm cheap, but I cannot see having to pay for copies of my own, or my friend's photos. Isn't there a place where you can store, share, edit and download w/o cost of prints? Do some of the wedding pages offer free sharing and storage?
                  For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

                    You wouldn't have to pay for your own pictures. You would have to pay to download your friends pictures to use them off the website. If they emailed them to you, you wouldn't need to pay. I do not know of a website where you can download a high res copy of the picture for free without your guests needed to download a program first. I am looking for one.

                    You can share the pictures for free on all the websites. If a wedding website gave you free storage of prints, you wouldn't always be able to download it free. You can right click & save the picture, but it's usually not a big enough file to do stuff with.

                    I'm checking out windows live spaces. I'm pretty sure you can download a high res image (free) and I don't think it requires a download. It says it's temporarily down right now.

                      Windows Live space

                      Windows live spaces. You create an account (simple process) and do not need to download anything, except the upload tool. All websites use an upload tool. It's an easy download. I'm mostly trying to avoid the types of downloads that change how you computer behaves.

                      Once you have an account, it's very easy to upload pictures. You can easily download your pictures (for free) in a resolution high enough to order an 11x14 print. You can also click a button that takes you to snapfish to order prints of your pictures if you want to do it that way.

                      So far it has everything I'm looking for. The only problem is I don't think you can create a group room like the others. Everyone would be making their own individual pages. I still need to spend more time on it. If there is a way to make a group room, I think this website would be the best option.

                      This is everything I'm looking for in a website:
                      -Easy for guests to upload pictures without downloading software (other tha the Active x control uploading tools)

                      -easy option for ordering prints

                      -ability to download a high resolution of the image if you want to photoshop it or use it in another project (preferably free)

                      So far snapfish fits this the best, but downloads are 5 cents a picture. The snapfish download process is also easy. On some websites you have to download each picture one at a time. Snapfish allows 50 at a time.
