1. Re: Which photo sharing site?

I prefer Picasa because you can put restrictions on who you share them with. You can create albums, and share some and not others. Or you can share photos with those who have the link. It has a lot of positive features. Picasa is a free download and you get a certain amount of free storage space. Just know, if you share a lot of photos, and want to continue to have enough space, you can resize your photos to smaller sizes. They will upload fine, viewers can see them, and you will save space.

I've also shared via Shutterfly (just the photobooks I've created). It is ok, just not as many options.

Facebook is another way to share photos, but it is not my preferred way. You can add restrictions, but they change their rules so often, you have to constantly monitor it.

I use Photobucket too if you can stand the Pop ups. Blurb for the books.

I won't let Facebook or any other googlefix near my harddrive.

Photobucket for me. Quite a bit of free storage space, and you can also make private as many albums as you want, and just share (with password) to the few you wish. Blurb for journal photobooks that have a lot more writing in them, Shutterfly for picture books.
