Your Photos are Private on Photobird.com

Most of you want to keep your photos private. You don’t want your photos exposed so that anyone on the Internet can see them. You only want your family and friends to see your photos.

Fortunately, Photobird.com, the easy way to share your photos, was built with exactly that idea. When you sign up for your Photobird.com account, your photo albums are automatically private. There’s nothing you need to do to make them private. No one knows about your photo albums until you start telling your family and friends about them.

On the other hand, a relatively small group of people want to share some of their photos with the world. People like Vicki Tinnon, David Cresine, Robert Romero, Mark Prinz, and Rafa Torcida to name a few, enjoy the exposure of sharing their photos and getting feedback. They all have submitted photos for the Photobird Photo of the Hour, which is your opportunity to share your favorite photos with the rest of the world. Rafa Torcida’s photo “Home Impressions #5” is shown above.

Fortunately, Photobird.com allows you to do it all. You can keep your photos private, or you can share your photos with the world, or you can do a mixture of both. For example, you can see my photo albums at photobird.com/ekrimen. But what you can’t see — unless I tell you about it — is that I have a hidden album with pictures of Florida in it. If you look at my photo albums, you won’t see my “Florida” photo album shown there. But if I give you the direct link, photobird.com/ekrimen/Florida, you can click on that link and see my Florida photo album. It’s a secret, hidden photo album that can only be seen if I give you the link. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have known it’s there.

Another option you have, in case you think people might be able to guess the names of your hidden albums, is to password protect one, some, or all of your photo albums. When you password protect your photo albums, you require your visitors to type in a password to view the photos in your photo album.

To make all of this even easier, for both hidden albums and password protected albums, and even for things like comments and ratings on your photos and albums, you can set up one album with password protection, for example, and all of the albums within that album will also be password protected. It’s a clever feature that makes it easy to keep some of your photos private while you share your favorite photos with the world. You can read how easy it is in our Photobird Daily article entitled “Show Off Your Photos, and Keep Some Private“.

All of these options are included at no additional cost when you sign up for your Photobird account. There are no extra fees, no gimmicks, no ads, no spam.

If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments below or send me a message directly and privately.

Faster, Easier, and More Convenient Than E-mail

Photobird.com is the easy way to share your photos.

Vicki Tinnon shares her photos, such as “Hiking in the Bells” shown above, on Photobird.com, and there are many reasons why you should too. Sign up for your own Photobird.com account.

If you’re still e-mailing your photos, here’s five reasons why Photobird.com is better than sending your photos via e-mail:

  • Less hassle: When you want to share your photos, you only need to send a link, instead of spending lots of time e-mailing the same photos to every person every time you want to send them. And your friends and family can select which photos they want to see, instead of waiting for them all to download in their e-mail box.
  • Faster: Photobird.com automatically creates smaller, web-ready versions of your photos when you add them to your albums, so your photos will be displayed quicker. Also, some computers may be too slow to see your large, original-sized photos, so the smaller, resized photos help there too. (By the way, when we resize your photos, your original photos are still available to you.)
  • Easy-to-use: It’s easy to view photo after photo after photo: just click the Next button. A lot of people like our slideshow feature too. Your friends and family won’t need to download large photos and then find a good computer program to view them. Also, we make smaller versions of your photos so they’re easy to see on most computer monitors. If you e-mailed your photos as is, they may be too large to fit on your friends’ and family’s computer screens.
  • Convenient: Your photos are always available. Your friends don’t need to wait for you to find the time to e-mail your photos to them. Your friends also don’t need to make room on their computers to see your photos; Photobird.com and your web browser will make it easy for your friends and family to view your photos.
  • More fun: If you wish, your friends and family can post comments about your photos. Your Photobird.com photo album is like having your own personal website!

Here are more reasons for sharing your photos on Photobird.com, which we’ve written about before in the Photobird Daily:
