Tis the season for picture taking! So where do I put all those pictures?

If you want to save them along with any other files you might have, the cloud is a good place.

If you have a Windows device (especially Win 8), Skydrive is easy to use. You just need an account: http://www.live.com

Another good cloud service is http://www.dropbox.com

If you want to just have a place to save photos your Phone or tablet can be set to save to the following sites:

http://www.flickr.com/ (Now you get 1 Terabyte free!)
http://photobucket.com/ (You get 2 GB free)
http://www.shutterfly.com
https://www.facebook.com/  (Unlimited storage of photos)

With flikr and shutterfly you can make books, pillows, blankets, mugs, etc.. with your pictures on them. Great for gift-giving!

If you take a lot of pictures….check this tool out! http://www.eye.fi/

Remember, MS Word has some good photo editing tools but one of the best is a free tool from Google called Picasa. http://picasa.google.com/

Here is some info on cameras you might find useful and a site that reviews them.
