CNET News Video: Apps to make you a better (photo) sharer

1:03 /

You survived the holidays, and now it's time to look back at the season's memories: the Thanksgiving mashed potato mishap and the family board game that got crazy competitive! In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on a couple of ways to easily share photos with friends and family.

iPhone users could share photos with the Photo Stream feature. Open your photos app and choose the cloud icon for share at the bottom. Create a new stream by tapping the plus button in the upper left corner, name the stream, and then start inviting friends and family, up to 100 people. Easily share photos by opening up the Photo Stream, tapping the plus button, then selecting the ones you'd like to add, include a comment, and then press post. Friends can like the photo, add their own comments, and even post their own pictures into the stream. For non-iOS users, check out a similar free service called Familiar. Download the app on to your devices and sign in either using your email address or Facebook, but don't worry, the app won't publish your photos to Facebook without your permission. Select photos you'd like to share from either your phone, your favorite social network, or Google's Picasa service. Once you select a photo, the app wants access to your contacts so you can share it with friends and family. The photo will then pop up as part of a gallery or slide show depending on the settings. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
