Last month I described one way to move photos online with Microsoft’s free photo program, Windows Live Photo Gallery, using the built-in option to publish photos on Skydrive.
It turns out that Windows Live Photo Gallery can also send photos online to a number of other services, making it even more flexible than I realized. It takes a moment to install a connector to some of the services, which then appear on the “Publish” button in Photo Gallery.
Here’s a page that lists the plug-ins for Photo Gallery. The Big Four:
- FACEBOOK LiveUpload to Facebook
- FLICKR Already built into Photo Gallery
- PICASA Picasa Web Publisher
- YOUTUBE LiveUpload to YouTube (already appearing in my copy of Photo Gallery – perhaps it’s included by default now)
