Getting Photos Online with EasyShare

Kodak EasyShare gives you two ways to put your photos online. If you use the EasyShare software to organize your photo collection on your PC (as discussed in the previous chapter) then you can upload your pictures from the same window without missing a beat (Figure 6-3). Then, there’s EasyShare Gallery (http://www.kodakgallery.com), the online component. This site lets you upload photos using any Web browser, which is great when you’re on the road or have your browser window open anyway. (See “Uploading Photos with Your Web Browser” in Section 6.3.2.)
