There are a growing number of websites that allow you to share your photos with others without having to email them directly. You can make your photos public or share them securely with selected people. You can also find the pictures shared by others that may relate to your own family history, of people, buildings, and places. 

This talk will demonstrate two such websites, Flickr and Picasa, as well as the free Picasa software for managing and editing your photos. 

Topics will cover:

  • Searching for photos
  • Adding your own photos
  • Editing photos (Picasa)
  • Face recognition (Picasa)
  • Sending photos from Flickr to Picture Australia, the National Library of Australia website.
