Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone knows of anymore photo sharing sites that allow you to make more then three sets without having to pay a fee.

We are currently using Flick'r and with how our CMS is set up, you upload a set onto CMS to go onto the web site. However, I just recently found out Flick'r only allows three sets per account.

Anyone know of others that offer something like this but possibly at no cost?

Thanks!

It's only $24 dollars a year. And you get the best photo site there it. Well worth it. Also when you pay your can have unlimited space and upload larger images.
We decided to pay the nominal fee and use a Pro Account on Flickr which provides unlimited storage, bandwidth and photosets. We did this for a couple of reasons:

First, we like the additional exposure that our pictures will get on Flickr. We make sure that we that we use the appropriate tags and get a decent amount of views directly on Flickr.

Secondly, Flickr makes it easy to syndicate your photos through RSS and share on a variety of sites both within the university's sites and external sites - Ning being a perfect example.

Thirdly, we use WordPress as a CMS for many of our sites and through a plugin it's very easy to pull pictures onto our sites.

FInally, we have started to create an application using the Flickr API to bring additional functionality and automation to the process.
We've done the same for one of the units we support (Flickr Pro Account, WordPress installation with the FAlbum plugin).

We were previously using Gallery but as soon as we demo'd the Flickr/WP/FAlbum setup, they wanted to switch right away. The biggest draw for them was the tool set that Flickr provides for photo management (easy batch uploads, organization, tagging etc.).

For us, it has been much easier to customize, and the real plus is that the time we spend customizing WordPress is a better "investment" of our time. Because there is so much more that WordPress is capable of doing, the skills / experience we've gained can now be used for other implementations and uses of WordPress.

This is in contrast to delving deep into the Gallery code which in the end may have given us the same features as what we've gotten out of Flickr/WP/FAlbum, but the learning there and potential re-use or re-development into other applications would have been much more limited.

It's a fuzzy distinction, but it has already started to make a difference in terms of what sort of features and functionality we can now build into other sites.
Late to the party, but...
How can we set up a University Flickr account without having a Yahoo ID?
I've hunted all over their site, but cannot find that information.

Thanks.

Hi Jon,

Best I know, Flickr doesn't have university/edu accounts in the same vein as iTunes or YouTube etc. We create a new Yahoo account for this purpose which has worked out well for us. (e.g. we can now also use this single account for using other Yahoo services such as Pipes: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/).

I love Gallery.

http://gallery.menalto.com/

It's something to be installed though & not just a photo sharing site so it does require the same care and maintenance and awareness of space usage required by anything else installed on your own servers. It does have a whole lot of flexibility though. You can set it to resize photos to whatever is convenient, limit or allow access for different folks.

We don't use it on my campus currently but we did use it at the previous college I worked at. I also use it on my personal website and I have found it to be incredibly useful.

It's worth looking at.
I love Gallery too but, unfortunately, we don't have the infrastructure. I see that Gallery now works with Oracle (used to be MySQL only) but our main webserver lacks the image processing libraries.
I've got a person account on Shutterfly. I've never paid a cent for hosting and must have 10 albums uploaded there with 600 pictures or so. Don't know if it's exactly what you want, but definitely worth checking out...

Jessica,

Have you looked into Picasa's web albums?
I know I emailed you back via the listserv, but I wanted to again post my unwavering support of Flickr here. :)
What about http://picasaweb.google.com ? I use this for personal albums, and have more than 3 accounts - it's great! I believe you are alotted an amount of space. You can purchase additional if desirable.
Have you used Picasa? I'm using their web galleries with a few Joomla built sites.
