These days, a serious photography enthusiast will often spend more time in front of a computer screen than behind the lens. Besides the significant job of going through a multi-gigabyte storage card to find the best shots and then editing them so they look even better, there’s also the task of sharing photos with others.
In the days of film, that meant heading to the darkroom (or drugstore) to make prints. In the digital world,you can post your photos online for viewing by family, friends or colleagues. You can also turn your photos into prints or gifts, and that usually means uploading files to a site that does this for you.
I’ve yet to find a perfect digital workflow for sharing, any more than I’ve found a lens that’s ideal for everything from macro close-ups to wide-angle panoramas. However, I have discovered three tools that make the process easier. Maybe they’ll streamline your workflow, too.
