Yahoo Album

Although it works well and is free, I no longer post to Yahoo Album for the reasons explained below.  It may be just what you want, however. I left a few photos there so you can see what it looks like and how it works.  I now post albums at

I used to use Yahoo Album to share photos with friends. It is free, it works well, and it is a simple way to share photos. Albums appear as folders. Inside each folder are thumbnails. click on a thumbnail to see a larger version of a photo, or click Slideshow. It works well.

If you are looking for a quick, simple, and free way to post photos on the internet, I recommend it.

However, it does not work for something I have been doing lately. I link to individual photos from my blogs, and this does not work with Yahoo Album. Yahoo gives the large version of each photo a reference name that changes. You can link to a specific folder from another website, but not to a specific photo.

In order to be able to link to individual photos, I switched to ImageEvent which is quick and simple, but in several ways better than Yahoo Album. You can post a lot more photos at ImageEvent (1,500), and you have a lot more display options. It also costs $24.95 per year (as of early 2004).

Both work well, ImageEvent just does a lot more but for a price. You can compare both and see which meets your needs.

Go to either set of albums to see some more of my photos.
