Sharing Baby Photos Online with Birth Announcements & Baby Photo Album Services
By Christina Khan
Congratulations! You're a new parent and you've brought your precious, beautiful baby into the world. You want to shout from the rooftops that you have this wonderful bundle of joy and you are so proud! You have seen or heard about online birth announcements before, and realize that they are a quick, easy, and no hassle way of spreading the news of the birth of your precious baby. Below we'll outline ways you can share your baby photos online or create your own online birth announcements.
The easiest way to create an online birth announcement is to go to a site that already has birth announcement templates for you to choose from. There are free birth announcement websites where all you do is upload a baby photo and some information and you are set to go, and there are other birth announcement websites that present you with the opportunity to create mini-journals of your baby, usually for a fee. There are sites that specialize in birth announcements that spotlight your religious preference or even for your favorite sports teams. From traditional to unique and even humorous, there is a birth announcement service out there for everyone.
Sharing Baby Photos Using a Free Online Photo Album Service
Another method for creating your own birth announcement website is to use one of the free photo album services offered online. For instance, iPhoto for Apple users provides the ability to upload pictures from a digital camera directly onto your own Apple hosted website. Shutterfly.com provides similar capabilities. If you have a digital camera, you can also upload your pictures to Wal-Mart where you can view the pictures and even send your baby photos to your local Wal-mart for photo processing in an hour so you can get photo prints for your own offline baby photo album.
Sharing Baby Photos with Your Digital Camera Software
Most of the digital camera manufacturers come with their own software that allows you to share photos also. For instance, HP offers a Share-to-Web software application allows you to upload your photos from your digital camera to a unique website that you can give out to your friends and family. HP's software also gives you the ability to email the photos without sending them as attachments or sending them as thumbnails attached to the email.
Sharing Baby Photos Over Instant Messenger
If you want instant gratification, the Yahoo! Messenger service now offers the ability to send pictures over your instant messaging program so you can just upload your baby photos and send them instantly! Visit http://messenger.yahoo.com for further information.
