Cloudfire – photo sharing for busy parents


cloudfire small Cloudfire   photo sharing for busy parents

Cloudfire is a easy to use online photo sharing service designed for people who don’t have the time or interest in doing things complicated like uploading to servers etc.

To get going download the free software and set up your own gallery. Then when you want to share new photos with friends and family, just drag and drop them into the gallery and the app will notify your sharers and they can view the updates. Think of it as a Dropbox for photos.

People should enjoy the fact that there’s no uploads involved, and the automatic photo backup onto Amazon S3 servers and the Facebook integration are real value adds. The service is free for up to 1000 photos and 2GB storage.

 As soon as you share your photos and videos, CloudFire starts transferring (caching) them to our servers in the background. However, if a photo or video is requested by a visitor before it has been cached, we fetch it directly from your computer, display it, and then cache it right after. Once a photo or video has been cached, the cache is what CloudFire uses it to display your galleries. We prioritize the order in which we cache things to deliver the best user experience. For example, thumbnails are cached before originals.
