p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sharing photos on the net


Since there is no 'cloud forum' I hope this is the right place.

I would like to upload a bunch of photographs to the cloud. For argument's sake, let's say I put up a thousand photos ranging in size from 500kb to 5 meg.

I would like to share subsets of this collection with various groups and individuals.
For example, I would like to select all of john's pix and send him a link to that collection. I would also like to select all of my ski club's pix and send them a link to that collection Some of these pix might also include john.

I would like to present the different collections in different formats. Let's say I would like john's collection to be a collage of all his pix on one page. I might light like the ski club collection to appear as a slide show of individual pix on a dark grey

the problem w smugmug is that you have to create a gallery for each presentation. It would be nice if i could do what lightroom does with its templates, but online for web viewing.
Is there a service that will do this? Easily?

Tried 500pix. dropbox, google drive, shutterfly, zen, smugmug
None seem to be able to do this. It shouldnt be hard- just select subsets of my photo collection and a presentation template.

You may have to hire a web programmer to do this for you. seems like highly custom job

If you are interested in a DYI solution the TTG Lightroom tools work well. Once you have the web site setup, you can easily create new galleries under the Publishing services and they go go straight to your site without messing with FTP, etc. That is what I am using.

You need to take another look at Smugmug. Smart Galleries, Collections do what you want.

Example, load photos into one or more private gallery and keyword them ("John", "Skiclub". Create a Smart Gallery with a "rule" for John. Volia, you've got John's gallery. Set the style to whatever you like that's close to a "collage".

Create a Smart gallery for Ski Club, set the style to slide show. All images with keyword "skiclub" appear there, as well as any future images you upload with keyword skiclub.

Tnx. I was hoping for a web app that could do this so I could share photo subsets on the go (from pc, Mac, android, iPhone) that do not have lr installed. Seemed like no one really wants this so it didnt exist.! Ill look at smugmug again.Tnx for your help.

Go to kickstarter.com raise some money start coding and build the site. You should be able to sell such a company for a billion or so in a couple of years.

I believe LR has a "Publish" option to upload to Smugmug.

ok, so i decided to use google docs to create a presentation. The images are on google drive. Google docs simply references the images so any number of templates are possible. For example, here are two different 'galleries' made in google docs.

Boston
Boston in Blue

Of course you cant sell the images, it's just a way to present subsets of your images with a circle of friends. The same way that 500pix does with sets, or smugmug does with smart sets.

Except of course, it's free.
