Best Photo Sharing Website
When it comes to photo sharing, there is no shortage of websites on the internet that will help you accomplish this aim. However, none of them manage to combine ease of usability with quality at the same level as PhotoBucket. The site contains many features that were designed with its users in mind, as well as allowing for the sharing of large quantities of photos with ease. Due to its widespread use and relevance to the largest amount of people, PhotoBucket has won the Mambo Award for Best Photo Sharing Website.
The first advantage of PhotoBucket is its ability to connect to a myriad of devices and medias, including computers, mobile devices and even Facebook. This allows for easy photo storing all in one place, as well as removing the worry about photo backup since they will all be stored remotely. PhotoBucket also features a comprehensive editing tool that makes it practically painless to edit large quantities of photos. They also have a Stories feature that turns photosharing into a narrative, allowing collaboration with friends and family. Lastly, PhotoBucket has adjustable privacy settings that give the user the option to share their photos with everyone, a small group of friends or even keep them entirely private.
Runner Up: Instagram
Although Instagram is widely popular and now integrated with Facebook, it remains a social media driven application that is meant more for sharing a single picture with all of one’s social media friends. It is extremely effective for its given purpose; however it is less useful to the general population as a photo sharing site. Therefore, it receives the runner up title in the competition for Best Photo Sharing Website.
Instagram’s most unique feature is its plethora of digital filters that are available to apply to any picture before sharing, giving its site a more artsy feel. It also confines its photos to a square shape, similar to a Polaroid image, contrasting it with most other photo sharing sites. It recently also incorporated the ability to share 15-second videos, moving it further away from the traditional photo sharing model.
