Sharing photos used to be as simple as handing over a stack of 5x7s—then technology got in the way, and the process became more complicated. SimpleNeat is a web-application that harkens back to a simpler time, providing its users with a straightforward way to share full-size versions their most precious photographs with family and friends.
Register for an account, then add your own photos to SimpleNeat by dragging them from your desktop to the browser screen. (SimpleNeat gives you the option to manually upload photos, as well.) From there, you’ll want to give your new album a name and decide how it should be shared. Adjust the settings to allow others to add photos to your album, or keep your album semi-private and viewable only to people who have a view-only URL. Although most users will want to create Free albums—with full-size photos that are stored for just one month—SimpleNeat also gives you the option to create Event albums. Event albums are designed for parties, reunions, and weddings, with no advertisements and a custom URL that’s easy for people to remember.
Friends who receive your album link can quickly browse through thumbnail images or download larger versions of any file. SimpleNeat lets people choose between large versions and original versions of each photograph. And unlike social networks, SimpleNeat doesn’t require people to sign up or enter their contact information in order to access the images that have been shared by their friends.
