How to Share Hundreds of Pictures


With the popularity of digital cameras and digital pictures, people seem to be using physical photo albums much less frequently. Today, most people upload their photos online, organize them into albums and send links to the albums to their friends and family members. If you want to share hundreds of pictures with people you know, there are a few different ways to do it. You can upload your photos to a photo-hosting website, upload the pictures to a social networking site or place the photos in a zip folder and email them.

Sharing Images with a Photo-Hosting Website

  • Visit a photo-hosting website such as or Flickr (see Resources). Create an account (if you don't already have one) by clicking on either the "Sign Up" or "Create Your Account" buttons and following the directions given to you.

  • Click on "Upload Photos and Videos" on or on "Upload Your Photos" if using Flickr. Locate the photo files or folders on your computer that you want to upload to either site and click "OK." The photos will then be loaded to the site. If desired, you can click on the "Organize" button to organize your photos into separate albums.

  • On, click on "My Home" or on Flickr click on the "You" tab. Copy the link in the address bar of your Internet browser. That will be the link you can give to other people so that they can visit your photo page and view your pictures.

Sharing Images with Facebook

  • Join a social networking site like Facebook and upload your pictures to your profile. Click on "Sign Up" to create an account (if you don't already have one) and follow the steps given to you.

  • Click on "Profile" to see your own profile and then click on "Photos." Click on "Upload Photos" in the upper right corner and then find your photos on your computer . You can create a new photo album and edit the descriptions or order of your pictures.

  • Copy the link that appears under "Share this album with anyone by sending them this public link" a the bottom of your album. Share that link with anyone you want to see your pictures, even if they're not Facebook members, and they will be able to view your pictures.

Sharing Images Via Email

  • Create a compressed zip folder, which allows you to place a large amount of files into a folder and compress it down for sending and downloading. Right-click on the desktop of your PC, scroll over "New" and then click on "Compressed (zipped) folder." Name the folder and then copy any pictures you want to share with others and paste them into the folder.

  • Log in to your personal email account, compose a new message and then click on the appropriate button that allows you to add an attachment to your email. Locate the compressed folder you just created, click on "OK" and the folder will be attached to the document.

  • Enter the email addresses of the people you want to receive your pictures in the "To" line of your email message with each email address separated by a semicolon, and click "Send." Be aware that most email programs have a limit on how large a file size in an email can be. For example, Google Gmail has a limit of 25MB per email, while Yahoo! Mail has a file size limit of 20MB per email. Placing your photos in a compressed folder will help keep the file size down, but double-check on the file size of the folder before attaching it.
