Thanks IAMQ.....this link certainly works well and I didn't have to sign in!Like your pix of New Zealand!

Everyone's comments have been quite helpful. I have been playing around with several sites today and so far I think I like "Kodakgallery" the best.

You are welcome. They recently changed the format and I like the new one a lot.

I'm also a fan of Kodakgallery.
Easy to use and never a problem with having to sign-in when sending album or link to friends/family.

Recently someone posted about having shared a link to a particular album of theirs, for a Fodor's thread, and later discovered it opened ALL their private albums as well. I believe there was a misunderstanding with the preferences in the beginning. When they realized that, they made the proper changes, but the albums were still available. Another poster suggested it may take up to a week for changes to be put in place.
So, just be sure to decide on who will be able to see your photos and verify with the photo site exactly how others will be able to see your photographs.
Good luck.

I don't recall that specific episode, but that can happen with Photobucket if you don't set up a specific folder to be private.

Kodakgallery's shared albums are automatically encoded.

Oooh iamq, I must say I love their new format too! Very cool. And I agree that your pics are wonderful. It sounds like knowing how to do the invitation link is the key. I may give them another try sometime. As I said before, I can be technologically challenged at times, but I am learning! These forums certainly help.

Kodak Gallery has an option where you can require viewwers to sign in with their e-mail address....this lets YOU know who has viewed your album....or, you can choose to not have them sign in. It's not really a registration per se...

No tricks, there. "Share this album" and "Choose albums to share" are prominent links right there on the Kodak page; all you have to do is click on stuff (and enter e-mails the first time you use them).

Okay Anonymous. I didn't mean to imply there was a trick to it. Just that I wasn't able to figure it out when I did it. Sheez!!

Sorry, I didn't realize you had tried it, I thought you were anticipating that it would entail some requirement for arcane html knowledge.

That's okay...it was about 2 years ago. I've improved at these sorts of things since then so I should try them out again.

I use Flickr and the free service only allows three albums, ever. So, I can't share just my Vegas trip photos for instance without lumping it in with everything else in that one of three albums. Do any of the other Flickr members deal with this? I'd like to set up many individual different albums.

I don't know if Kodak has a limit but I have 116 albums stored there. Some of them have just a few pictures and some more than hundred.

EmilyC, here a sample of my photos I took in Denali National Park in the end of August

Thanks to all who took the time to help me out. Here is a link to the album that I created.
<http://www.kodakgallery.com/ViewSlid...1231094447432>

I hope the link works OK.

For those who are interested in the areas of Berchtesgaden, Salzburg and the Alto Adige, I tried to put links with the appropriate photo.

I couldn't get it to open. Send yourself an invite to the album you want to share. When it comes, copy and paste the url at the top. That link should work.

Emily, your first link (from 1:46 PM) worked fine when I cut and pasted it. Beautiful places!

If you can stand another new technology, here's a suggestion: Go to tinyurl.com where you can get a short, customized link for any gigantic link. Here's a tiny url for the page you posted above:

I started using www.Photobucket.com when I was worried about privacy issues.
They were also easy for me to download photos that were huge
