Parents, grandparents, friends, and couples are always looking for new ways to share photos privately without inviting the rest of the world to peek in. With Yogile, that goal might finally be a reality. The ultra-private photo sharing website lets groups of friends and family members create memorable photo albums that can be kept locked away from outsiders with minimal effort.
To start using Yogile, just sign up for a free account and start uploading pictures. In addition to being able to upload photos through a button on the site, you can also take advantage of e-mail and MMS uploading options. Select whether a new album should have a password by entering one or leaving the field blank, and then add a description or caption to each photo – just as you would with any other photo sharing service. Each album will have a unique web address that can be quickly shared with friends via email or IM. These friends, then, can also become collaborators on the album by uploading their own related pictures. A collection of 30 photos from your cousin’s Bat Mitzvah can quickly turn into 300, once all the other family members in attendance start including their own candid snapshots in the album you created.
Although users with free accounts are limited to just 100MB of storage per month, upgraded storage options are available with paid plans. And unlike some other photo album applications, Yogile allows users to retain all the rights to any images they upload onto the site. For families and other close-knit groups looking for a simple way to share private photos online, Yogile is an excellent application to try out.
