    I don't have a photo sharing site, I normally just put a selection of pictures on my website. However, during my students recent production of Julius Caesar, I must have accumulated 200 pics!

    I don't want to put them up on my website - too much space!

    So, which site is fast, user friendly, and parents can download freely, without an account if possible?

    Thanks!

    I don't think the site is perfect, but one site that can be used for your classroom is Shutterfly. It can be password protected, and then you can give your parents your class name and password. With the password, the parents do not have to have an account to view the pictures. The only downside I've experienced were a few issues uploading a large amount of pictures at once on that site. Hope that helps! :)

    I agree with Shutterfly's albums. I set up one so that family & friends can see pictures of my son. It's very user-friendly! Dropbox.com is another, but I don't like it as much.

    Give Picassa a Try

    I started a gmail account for my teaching world, and use the calendar, sites, gmail, and picassa for all my educational needs.

    The photo hosting on picassa allows 1GB of photos and you can password protect or leave albums open.

    It works well with me...

    I have two Shutterfly accounts, one for school and one for my family. I love it!
