In David Pogue’s recent New York Times article he lists several photo sharing and print buying sites that have multi-generational appeal. How does he know? He made his mom try them.
RECEPTIVENESS to new technologies often seems related to age. For example, more 13-year-olds than 63-year-olds understand phrases like “Waz ^?” and “N2MH.” (In case you’re over 13, those expressions are cellphonese for, “What’s up?” and “Not too much here.”)
So it was with pride that I watched my parents “get” the magic of digital photography after our family reunion last summer. On the final night, I treated them to a laptop slide show of our week together. They dug it.
From Shutterfly, Webshots, and Photobucket to Flickr, Snapfish, and others, he tells you which ones are easy to use regardless of age or tech savvy. Pogue even mentions PictureSync, “a free, elegant effortless program that can batch-upload photos to any sharing service.”
Which photo-sharing sites do you use?
