I'd like photos that I take on my iPhone to automatically turn up on my mom's iPhone. I'd prefer to do this without setting up my iCloud account on her phone, since we don't need to share contacts, calendars, etc. Ideally the solution would be completely transparent for her, and require little or no ongoing effort from me once it's set up. Any tips on the best way to do this?
Upgrading my phone: I'm debating a Droid 4, but I'm a bit nervous about the mediocre reviews of the camera. Will a third-party camera app improve the photo quality? [more inside]
A friend of mine is moving to an all-iOS home infrastructure: - iPhones - iPad - airprint printer - Apple TV No computer. Their died and they're not buying a new one. They don't have much or any local music or video content, but do have a ton of photos (like over 16GB by some large amount). What's the best way that you can think of, without them having to buy a computer, of storing photos and sharing them amongst all of their devices and with other people. Interested in hearing about both free and paid services. Also interested in camera app recommendations, other app recommendations, and service recommendations. This question gives some interesting camera app recommendations and I'll send that to him as well. Thank you.

Photograph print storage and archiving. I have several document boxes full of randomly sized and often somewhat tatty photo wallets, usually containing either 24 or 36 6x4 photos, and neg strips. I'm looking for a storage system to migrate these too. Basically, I'd like to take the photos out the old wallets, put them in the new standard card/plastic wallets, and then add/write some index terms on the top spine and cover. Thank you! [more inside]

I just created a fan page for my photography. Naturally I'd like to add some photos but I can't seem to figure out how. If I click on photos, there's an album for the profile picture, but I can only change that photo; not add to it. There's no option to create a new album. Am I missing something? [more inside]

I have a slew of photographs that I no longer want and would like to donate them if any folks can use them. I have tried art schools, public libraries, CraigsList, etc. to no avail. They are mostly snapshots of scenic views that I can no longer identify. Anyone know of any collage / multimedia artists, or organizations that utilize snapshots and will accept donations? Thanks in advance.

So I love this image, and want to use it for an art project. It's old, so I'm pretty sure it's public domain. I'll find out. But meanwhile, does anyone know where I can find a hi-res image file of this photo? I tried emailing that website, but no dice.
Flickr is perfectly fine, but I hate that it switches up photo URLs/servers, so photos I post on my blog turn into 'photo not available.' Since that's what I mainly use it for, it's getting to be a pain. What do I switch to? [more inside]
So, I have a little Wordpress site on Media Temple for photos. Nothing else, just photos. No blog posts, no comments, etc. It's occurred to me that it's really a static site. And static sites can be hosted on Amazon S3. I can handle building the site locally and moving it up to S3. But, I'm wondering about updates. It seems to me that if I build a site locally, publish it to S3, that I can do updates by synching S3 with my local file system. Right? Has anyone done this? Are there apps specifically geared to publishing and maintaining sites on S3?

Probably a perennial question, but stuff changes. I'm looking for recommendations for a host for a non-pro photo site. I've used Fiickr, SmugMug, and ZenFolio. I'm after a host that allows me to muck about with design, CSS and HTML, etc., but doesn't compel mr to admin servers or worry about installing security updates remotely. I can admin a server, but, you know, life's too short. Shared host is probably the best bet, but I'd look at renting a slice of a managed server. Basically, I just wanna build a site that looks like i want, upload photos, and be done with it.
