Share photos online
When I think of the holidays, one of my strongest memories is of my mom addressing and mailing box after box of holiday cards, stuffing each one with various photos of the family. These days, it's a lot easier to share your photos on the Web, via one of the many popular photo-sharing sites.
I regularly use Flickr for this purpose. I love Flickr because there are no limits on how many images you can store on the site, or on what how large a photo you can save. (If you use the free version of Flickr, however, you can upload no more than 100MB in a given month.)
To share photos with friends or family, first upload them to Flickr, and then let people know how to get to your Flickr page. Once there, they can click the All Sizes button above a photo to get to the download page.
