These days we’re really spoiled when it comes to ways to share images with friends and family. I’ve been a fan of Flickr for as long as it’s been around and it’s better than ever today. It’s also ideal for the occasional snapper as the free account allows you to upload 100MB a month.
However, we’re not in any way occasional, having taken thousands of pictures since the kids were born. That’s why we went for a pro account on Flickr many years ago. This gives you unlimited uploads.
But the big problem with having so many pictures is how to best present them to your friends and family. Well that question might have been usefully answered by a recent visitor to Mull who posted to the Isle of Mull discussion forum on TripAdvisor, providing a link to a service I’d not come across previously.
Called TripWow the service (as illustrated above) lets you pick your favourite snaps and turn them into a really slick-looking slideshow with music, which you can then share with friends. That’s just what ‘woodybark’ has done with her selection of shots from a recent trip to the Isle of Mull.
Rather handily TripWow works with a bunch of online photography websites. Using the free service you can log in to your Flickr, Picasa or Facebook account, or just upload directly from your computer.
It’s a great way to give friends a flavour of what you did and saw on your holiday and, once created, your photo presentation is easy to share on services like Twitter and Facebook.
