I’m a photo nut! I love taking pictures wherever, whenever, and for whatever reason. On my phone, on my camera, on my wife’s phone, on my MBP. I thought I had a good way of organizing all my photos. I just used iPhoto, and created a library on an external HD. But I’ve got a couple issues now.
- Jen wants to scrapbook. That means she needs access to all our photos whenever she wants them. Right now they’re all on my external HD. So I attached it to her laptop (which unfortunately, is a PC) and downloaded Picasa, then imported the photos from my iPhoto folder. The problem is the photos are not all tagged right and they came over as a mess, not organized at all.
- I have photos from my church as well as my family, so I really need to separate the libraries and have two totally separate ones.
So, I’m looking for some advice. I’d really like to get all of our photos online. I’ve started a pretty decent flickr account for the church photo’s, which works out well. I also have my own flickr account, but what I don’t like is that either (a) flickr doesn’t have the organizational power of iPhoto, or (b) I don’t know how to use it.
Google (Picasa) is OK, but not quite as cool as flickr.
So, I’m thinking that I need to get my photos online (high quality, so lot’s of storage space – and of course I’d keep a backup here in the real world). I’d just like to hear what you all have found as good solutions for photo storage and sharing.
I’m all ears!
