Some of my favorite general-use photo-sharing sites are: is Mike Baird's
Picasa Wed Album and is the same as or
All Google-related images above are now branded under Google Plus
A+ was once the easiest-to-use and most functional of all the no-low-cost photo-sharing sites, but storage size and social packaging has limitiations for most people (Note: 10-06 Surprisingly, for a Google-owned site, there is no way to search your Picasaweb, and searching for content or "images" using Google or other search engines usually yields no results - , and )   is the same as
A+ is an astounding "social-network-based" photo-sharing site that may get you addicted -  Pros use this to upload essentially an unlimited number of photos of any sizeFlickr is now my preferred third-party photo sharing site.  ...one can now upload an unlimited quantity of full-resolution photos, and organize them into an unlimited number of sets and collections.  I recommend Flickr as a permanent storage solution for the serious photographer. Zazzle is included here because it is the coolest way to make and distribute T-shits and mugs with your images LuLu.com is the ultimate destination for self-publishing and print-on-demand - makes it trivial to distribute intellectual property - read Morro-Bay.com is Morro Bay CA's largest and most trafficked web site, serving one-half million page-views per year from a repository of 20,000 documents.  Its Mission is to provide unbiased and unique (mostly non-commercial) information in areas not easily found on other related Morro Bay web sites.  Michael "Mike" L. Baird's Personal Web Presence has many personal photos such as those related to my travel in Latin America Miscellaneous "free sites"

One of the most frequently asked questions is "How do I upload and share photos or other large files, for free...? There are now many that facilitate just this... , and recommend that you try or  (and was okay, but it closes 4/30/08) - all  are free and allow storage and retrieval of full-resolution images.

The following (mostly free) photo sharing sites contain small sample galleries I created to test out these services - not much content of interest will be found here.  . (some of these lnks are dead now, attesting to the dynamic nature of this business.)

is a gateway to our local is a shortcut to the photomorrobay Yahoo! Group at Desc.:  A few photographers in and around the Morro Bay, CA area share photos and ideas, schedule informal events, and post news items related to their photography hobby or avocation. Everyone welcome - from beginners to experts. A new effort just starting (10-06) which could take a few years, and may never go anywhere - is the future home of a possible book entitled "Birds of Morro Bay, CA" -- a photo book containing gallery quality prints and some interpretative information This is an "Invitation only" area primarily for the private transfer of some large images
