Posted on the 23 February 2013 by Butterchicken @vivekkrishnan

This post is a list of sites where you can share photos. Almost all of these sites have a an option for a free account. This is very important since most photographers would not like to shell out a lot of money for uploading their photos.. These websites are quite active and have a huge community, so you can generate good exposure for y0ur photography. They are the one’s which have stood the test of time and are actively adding new users everyday.

Photo sharing sites
Good exposure and encouragement is the baseline for any photographer and the internet makes it extremely easy since you can get a lot of eyeballs via photo sharing websites. Any successful photographer looking to make a global mark should not underestimate the popularity that these sites can offer them.

Here is a list of top photo sharing websites:

500px

It seems they came out of no where to become one of the most popular photo sharing website. You can upload up to 10 photos per week via your free account that they provide and unlimited pictures if you opt for their premium plan. On 500px, you can vote for photos, view the best photographs that were taken, editorial picks etc. It allows users to buy a photo if they want and comment and vote up a photo that they like. The voting of a particular photo improves its chances to be showcased to the thriving photography community existing on 500px.

DeviantArt

DeviantArt is not only for sharing your photos but a lot of enthusiasts use this website for artful editing of their photographs, wallpaper, digital paintings and a lot more. They are one of the oldest and most popular forums where photographers sign up to have their photos seen by a wider audience.

Flickr

Still one of the best photo sharing websites available for us on the internet today. You need to create a Yahoo Id to create a login to this site. But it is completely worth it as Flickr is one of the most search photo sharing site. Many webmasters and buyers look for photos via the search feature that Flickr offers. You have an option to opt for a free or premium account. However, they cap a monthly upload limit of 300 MB on free users. In any case, Flickr provides you direct links for all the photos you upload.

Shutterfly

Another great service where you can upload, view and organize the photos you upload. They can be shared with others. Recently in news, Kodak Gallery is shutting down and all their users are going to be shifted to Shutterfly.

DayViews

You can publish and share unlimited photos to Dayviews. Its totally free and of course, you keep rights for your photos without being infringed. A great service for anyone who is looking for their photos to get more exposure and be seen by others in the photography community.

This was a list that might come handy for any photographer. Feel free comment below to drop in any site that I may have missed out on!
