What to do with your digital photos

Digital photography has become a common hobby and an easy way for many of us to take pictures. Most personal computers come with some kind of photo editing software that gives everyone the ability to edit photo work and share the results with others. In this weeks article we take a look at two on-line services that support this leisure activity. The first online service, called Picnik, is a Web site that provides users the ability to upload photos, tweak them as desired and save the results back to the PC. The service can be tried for free but, if you plan to use it for more than editing a single photo at a time, registration is fast and easy. Find the service at www.picnik.com. What can we do with our pictures once they are sorted through and tweaked? One answer is put them into a photo book using the services of Shutterfly. Claiming to be the number one on-line photo service, Shutterfly provides a comprehensive set of digital photography support tools. Some of the tools are free while others are not. A paid service I would like to point out is Shutterflys photo book service. A photo book is great way to consolidate photos from a single event, like a wedding or vacation, into a small hard-cover book. Along with the photos users can add text entries that support each photo. Shutterfly has multiple photo book sizes available from a small four by four inch brag book up to the twelve by twelve-inch memory book. The photo books can have two or more cover options and they start with 20 pages that can be increased as desired. Find Shutterfly on the Web at www.shutterfly.com.
