    Flickr is highly recommend. Plus it's easy to copy your image (share) and paste it into PAD.
    Also run a search using that Google Custom Search to the right side of these messages and run a search on this topic. A few months back this was discussed.

    Right, there's a big difference between sharing with others and simply sending the files to someone else.

    Google Drive is quite good for sharing files, as well as One Drive and Dropbox.

    But Flickr is how we usually share photos amongst fellow photo enthusiasts.

    Facebook is possibly the worst possible site to upload your photos to. Flickr, 500px, and such are much better options.
    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    :-t :-t :-t [-X [-X [-X

    Flicker, 500PX is the way to go.

    For those that have Mac's iPhoto is also a good option via iCloud.

    Guys, He's not talking about downloading, he's talking about people seeing his and being able to see many others. PitchBlack's post is absolute;y correct.

    Ditto! If you are looking for exposure at virtually no cost with the highest market penetration Facebook is the place. I despise the (anti-) social media more than most but it can be a very effective avenue for exposure and business. One caveat: When using Facebook as a marketing tool one must be prepared to separate the wheat from the chaff.

    Occasionally a decent image ...

    The best platform to share your photographs is the platform that the people you want to share with already use.

    If the people you want to share with use Flickr, then Flickr is the best platform.
    If the people you want to share with use FB, then... well you get the idea.

    There is no universal best sharing site. If there was, there would only be one site. :)

    I use Flickr because everyone I want to share my photographs with is on Flickr. I am not always happy with Flickr, but when I considered moving to another platform, I had to think that it would only work if every person I wanted to share with also switched. Hence I stay with Flickr, warts and all.

    To be the next billioniare, all one has to do is make another sharing platform that allows sharing across disimilar platforms so that people on FB can see my pictures on Flickr. How hard could that be? =))
