Club Photo

The Good Lets you view images online; public photo gallery displays other members' work; impressive print quality.

The Bad Must pay annually for extended storage; telephone support is erratic; service truncates lengthy thumbnail captions.

The Bottom Line Club Photo's annual $24.95 Gold Membership entry fee may seem steep, but if you're willing to pay to share original high-resolution images, it may be worth the price. Casual shutterbugs, steer for Ofoto.

Club Photo

Unlike free online photo sites such as Ofoto or Shutterfly, which charge only if you order prints, Club Photo charges an annual fee just to store your images. This service's extras, such as high-resolution image viewing and an online-community photo gallery, however, may justify the price to photo enthusiasts. Casual shutterbugs who simply want to store and share medium-resolution images should check out Ofoto instead.Unlike free online photo sites such as Ofoto or Shutterfly, which charge only if you order prints, Club Photo charges an annual fee just to store your images.

No installation required
Like most online photo services, Club Photo doesn't install on your hard drive. To use the service, simply surf to the site and enter your name and e-mail address. Your photo album's interface displays text-based navigational menus across the top, more text-based menus on the left for viewing or editing albums, and a series of impressively large image thumbnails in the middle.

Unfortunately, although Club Photo makes it easy to import batches of photos, it doesn't preserve the names of your files. As a result, your photos may have partial labels or captions until you manually retype them. If you want to adjust your images, say, fiddle with brightness and darkness, rotate them, or change captions, click the box above the thumbnail. To preview your alterations, click the thumbnail to open a second window. For detailed offline editing, which is faster than online editing, and more convenient batch-photo uploads, you can download a free, abridged version of Club Photo's Living Album software. A full edition of the program, which allows unlimited album pages and supports multimedia, will set you back $29.95.
