Tech Tuesday – Minus.com Photo Sharing Service


There have been a lot of developments in photo sharing services in the last year. Google merged it’s picasa service with G+ providing essentially limitless photo storage; facebook, of course, remains as popular as ever; and other cloud storage services, such as dropbox and box.net, can also be used to store and share photos. Another newer service that I’ve become fond of is minus.com. It’s got an easy user interface, is entirely browser-based, and has mobile apps for viewing/sharing on the go. You get 10gb of free storage and for every user your invite to join, you each get an additional gig of storage when they register. As it’s new, easy usernames (i.e. your name) are still readily available. Best part: it’s free and the developers intend to keep it that way. It’s not currently unlimited lik Google, but there are more than a few people growing increasingly uncomfortable with Google having all of their information. So register and try it out. Leave a comment with your impressions of the service.
