This Has To Be The Easiest Photo-Sharing Site Ever

The web is awash with photo-sharing sites, such as Flickr.  But while these sites are a great way to show off your own work to others, and to share photos that you've taken, they don't make it particularly easy to share the job of contributing the images.  It's generally accepted that one person will create and upload the pictures, and others will share the job of looking at them.

But a startup site called Project Minus (www.min.us)  aims to change all that.  It's incredibly quick and easy to use, looks fantastic, and makes a superb job of allowing a group of people to upload and view images.  Ideal if you want to create a common repository for a group of people to upload their own pictures of, say, a wedding or a school play.

Assuming you have a supported browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or IE9), just fire up the site, drag some photos onto the empty page, and you're done.  Yes, really.  It takes just seconds, there's no need to sign up, and the results are superb.  Some very clever Javascript code takes care of the uploading, and if you resize your browser then all the images get dynamically resized in real time too. 

Once you've dragged your images, you'll be allocated 2 unique URLs by which to access your collection.  One is for viewing, while the other allows editing (renaming existing pics, uploading new images, etc etc).  Just give those URLs to your fellow wedding guests, or proud parents, and the photo-sharing exercise is complete.

There are other features too. You can, if you want, sign up and create an account on the site.  For more news about what's coming in the future, see the developers' blog.
