Photo Sharing

In #balloon-mapping, #timelapse, #photo-monitoring and other methods documented on this site, you often end up with thousands of photos, which are hard to upload to the web or share with others.

There are different ways to do this, and none are perfect -- choose one based on what you're most comfortable with and what resources you have.

For each approach, consider:

  • cost
  • complexity
  • bandwidth requirements
  • preferences of the group you want to share with



Especially since none of the above methods are perfect, please help identify any problems, suggest other possible ways to share photos, or just ask any related questions here:
