web site for storing files and phots for others to

  iqs 18:14 21 Jan 2009


Is there a free if possible web site, where I can upload files and photos for example which others can download if I allow it ?.

We have relatives in Australia and Argentina,who we send family photos and video to.Most are to big to attach,so we send discs,expensive .

Any help is appreciated,thanks

Photobucket click here There are others as well, but their name has slipped my mind at the moment.

thanks for the help MAJ,almost what I was after,I should of made my thread clearer.

When I say which others can view,I mean only those I choose,just family not the rest of the world.

Maybe something like online storage ??. Thank you for the link,if all else fails I will give Photobucket a try,cheers

That's what I thought you meant, iqs, as far as I know you can keep them private and only share with those you want.

Photobox click here is another, I forgot I had a free account with them.

Global Message Exchange can do what you are wanting.
In the Web Office part - File Storage
"Send an e-mail to invite friends to your GMX File Storage:
* Share folders
* For a predefined time span or without any time limit
* Full control over who can see which contents for how long"

It's free and reliable and very easy to use click here

Another way to share the photos and videos, iqs, if you don't fancy of the above, is to use an FTP Server. I have done it before and it works well. What happens is that the files are stored on a folder on your PC and your relatives connect to that folder over the internet, they can then download the files directly from your folder. Here's a tutorial on how to do it, if you're interested. click here
