Not every photo you take necessarily needs to be shared with the entire world. When it comes time to post private photos of precious events like births, birthday parties, and family vacations, more people are turning away from large photo posting sites, like Facebook and Flickr, and toward more private alternatives, like 7Moments.
7Moments strikes just the right balance when it comes to posting private photos online. The photo album creator lets you create private groups, which can view only the photos you select. Start your first album and upload any photos you wish to include, then invite the people who you’d like to share that album with. 7Moments lets you invite different people for different albums, which means you can let your parents see photos of your new daughter without necessarily letting them see photos from the spring break trip you took to Cancun in college. Similarly, you can invite work friends to view the photos you post of a company picnic, without letting them see photos from your honeymoon or a private family event.
Anyone who is invited into an album can contribute their own photos to that album, which means 7Moments is a great way to collect photos you may not have known existed from major events like weddings and family reunions. Album contributors can also comment on photos and download the full resolution images, which prevents you from having to email full size photos to friends who want their own copies.
