Storing and sharing images using FlickR

Screen_Shot_2012-05-02_at_2.30.42_PM.png

FlickR is a really useful tool for storing your images online. It makes it easy to share them with family and friends without the need of emailing large files.
Each image has its own unique URL so you can point people to your whole collection or just parts of it.
You can adjust privacy settings too so that you have some public images and some that only your 'friends' see.
Images can be sorted into sets and collections, and you can even upload short 90 sec videos!
