Photo Sharing without multiple accounts?
August 19, 2018 3:53 PM   Subscribe

Of all the cloud based photo sharing options (Flickr, Dropbox, Box, Google Photos, etc.) are there any in which an individual sets up an account and sends a share link to multiple others, where the others can upload photos without creating their own accounts on the site?

My mother-in-law will soon celebrate her 90th birthday and we want to collect digital photos for a slide show from many non-tech savvy family members. I can send them the link with basic uploading instructions in an email, but am hoping that they can just drag and drop their own photos to a shared folder on a cloud-based website. I do not want everyone to have to create their own accounts in order to share their photos.

You should be able to do what you want with Dropbox: Create file request

Thanks stefnet! Trying that one out now. I was not aware of that option in Dropbox, but it looks like it should work well.

You’re welcome! I think it’s a fairly new feature. I’ve used it with no problems for work events!

Flickr will give you an email address that others can use.

Thanks soelo. That looks like another good option.
