The long-running comic strip Blondie often depicts the Bumstead family looking through a photo album and commenting on some disreputable relative. In the twenty-first century, the photo album easily could be electronic, and the Bumsteads could share photos online with all their relatives, including the disreputable ones.
Online photo albums are a great way to share photos with others, but they're also a great way for you to keep your own photos as well. When they're online, no matter where you are, they're within reach. And you can easily print the photos, and order photos from the online photo service as well. Your friends and relatives can do the same.
This chapter shows you how to build and use online photo services with ease. There are many online photo services you can use, but in this chapter we'll concentrate on how you can use a publishing wizard built directly into Windows XP to create an online photo album in MSN Groups, as well as how to use tools built directly into Adobe Photoshop Elements to create photo albums on the Ofoto site, jointly created by Adobe and Kodak. There are also other online photo sites worth trying, including www.shutterfly.com and www.flickr.com.
