A while back, I posted 7 Alternatives to Flickr. I asked for your thoughts on my suggested alternatives and other recommendations that you had. I got more than I bargained for in your comments. I quickly realized that I had left many great sites out of my abbreviated list. Due to all of your great suggestions, I felt that you deserved a more complete list of photo sharing sites.

My favorite photo processor just got even better. Sit tight and let me tell you the story of myLove for myPhotopipe.com – then we’ll get to the new FolioPrints.
When family, friends or anybody asks me where they should get there photos developed, I tell them to go to myPhotopipe.com. The response I usually get is “huh”? After I explain to them that it’s a website that you can upload your digital images to – just like Kodak EasyShare Gallery – it generally clicks (no pun intended) with them.
The thing I like the most about myPhotopipe.com is when I edit an image on my iMac, I send it to myPhotopipe.com and get the same thing back in a physical print (e.g., color, exposure, contrast, etc.).

I tried everything from the cheap processors like Kodak, Shutterfly, Snapfish and York Photo to more “pro” services like Mpix and myPhotopipe. I got all the prints back, spread them across the table and started the process of elimination to find the best of the bunch. [Read more…]

I hear you loud and clear that you like content on the latest gear. If you haven’t checked these pages out yet, take yourself a gander at them. Expect plenty more where this came from in 2008.
Best Price Cameras is attempting to capitalize on the Canon 5D Mark II rumors even though there has been no official word that this camera will ever exist. According to the product page, the Canon 5D Mark II is a 16MP camera.
Hold your horses though before you try to buy something from these yahoos. [Read more…]
