Photo Sharing - Did you know?

Post by BillMiddlebrook »

Did you know there's a Photo Album Sharing page on 14ers.com?

If you climb a peak with a group of partners and want an easy way to share your JPGs, take a look at the Group Photo Sharing page accessed from your MY STUFF menu on the upper right of the home page.

Here's how it works and YES you can do this from your smart phone!
  1. On the Group Photo Sharing page, start an album by clicking the "Share Photos" link
  2. Add a bunch of pics to the album
  3. Click "Start Upload..." and let it work...
  4. When it's done, save the album and it will give you a link you can share with your friends. They do not have to be registered on the site to view the album.
  5. Albums stay out there for 7 days before they are automatically deleted, so you don't have to maintain anything or go back and delete, etc. However, if you want to go back in and edit (add/delete photos) the album, go back to the MY STUFF->Group Photo Sharing and click the pencil icon to the right of the album.
When your friends get the link, they can view the album on their computer or mobile device. When viewing individual pics, there's a "Download" link in the caption area below each image. If they want the entire album, there's a "Download Entire Album" link at the bottom of the album page. The photos are the original size and resolution so they get what you uploaded.

Here's a sample album...
“Today, up on this hill
I'm counting all the killers
They sway as they swarm
A look of gluttons in their eyes
They mutter as the body loses warmth
They pick your bones like locks inside a tomb
And take great care to not take care of you”

Bill - if I understand this right, this is like a timed access Dropbox/Drive/etc link that auto-deletes at the end of the 7 days?

Yes, or you can delete it before 7 days if you want. And your friends don’t need a 14ers.com login to view/download the album.

Thanks Bill!

Any limits on file sizes and/or album sizes?
If you can't run, you walk
If you can't walk, you crawl
If you can't crawl, you find someone to carry you

Yup, all there on the page.
