Just got n' E mail from a friend who loves his Microsoft "SKYDRIVE." picture storage site and I was quite impressed with the photos that he sent to my of a week end flying get together.

 However he has a huge amount of computer skills and some quality photo equipment that are waaaaaaaaaay about my meager tired n' retirement funds that is twindling down to a precious few $$$?

HAS ANYONE TRIED USING SKYDRIVE for sending and saving photos? etc?

I don't get the comment about money. It looks like you get 7GB of storage for free. Why not try it out yourself?

+1 for google drive/docs
Not as much a fan of dropbox, it seems to fill up fast for what we use it for

TRULY...Not about the money...but I truly don't want to go through the same experience that happened when I tried to "sample" their new bail out saile to "SMILE!" Shocked

Especially when I found it extremely difficult and downright  annoying that it took such an effort and needless amount of time in order to remove that SMILE  program with my windows 7 "add & remove" feature that for some reason seem unable to REMOVE-------without RESTORING MY COMPUTER TO AN EARLIER DATE?

do you want to be able ot just transfer files easily between people on line? or do you want to share pictures and have them shown online?

If you just want to transfer files I would push you towards google drive and dropbox.   Both of these programs are web based but they also have downloadable software that is easy to use...

If you want to share pictures I would push you towards Picasa and Photobucket and flickr.   Picasa has a program that you can download...it is super easy to use and in the program it will identify and who you every picture image in your hard drive...this is great if you have a lot of photos saved away like i do....
Photobucket and flickr are both completely web based without any software (that I am aware of) needed in your computer.

note: Flickr is owned by Yahoo...so if you have a yahoo account that makes it a little simpler...
Picasa is a Google product...so if you have a gmail account/google+ account this makes picasa easier to use....

As I recall if you put Google+ on your android phone you also receive unlimited storage on Picasa. A big + for us 'Droid users.
