Keeping track of our digital photos is presumably easy, at least if you talk to sales people for digital cameras, software, laptops (mac and windows), etc. However, when it comes down to it, all local storage has limits. Be it the newly acquired 1TB LaCie Hard drive, 16GB SD card, or your iMac.

Software available today, which lets you organize your photos has made an enormous impact on how we edit, store and show off our digital copies of life. Problems start arising when you are closing in on the limit of your internal hard drive on your PC/Mac. Do you know how your software handles that?

Of course huge external hard drives can store your photos at home, but accessing the photos from time to time in the case of a slideshow may prove to cause some inconvenient difficulties.

Surely you can’t bring all devices with you to family dinners and parties, so choosing what stays home and what comes along is always part of the preparation. As if making the kids, a dog, and spouse ready to leave doesn’t create enough stress by itself.

Well here is an idea:

“Upload all your photos to expono.com/”your username”, keep them organized in albums for easy viewing with a web browser.”

Expono.com has a great web based upload mechanism which lets you upload photos in the original size directly into an existing or new album, so you’ll always have a safe and organized copy of all your photos.

Expono.com takes care of additional items you may want to consider. It protects your photos from any hard drive crash, any (god forbid) fires in you home or office, and of course the obvious theft or loss of your laptop. You’ll have an organized back up of all your photos.

Expono.com also enables you to make access lists, so that you can easily create custom groups with access rights to photos and albums of your choice. Of course you can use our generic family, friends, and business groups. Or the extremes private (only you) or public (any one). The point is that you are in the driver seat when it comes to your photos.

Hello

The upgrade today is taking longer time than expected due to some data issues that has been discovered. We are working on correcting the discovered issues. We are expecting expono.com to be live again at 7 PM GMT.

We are sorry for the inconvience.

In the meantime, here is the changelog of new features that will go live with this update.

Update #8 – Location browsing & Embed Code
2009-01-17 (v0.9.0-2865)

– You can now browse your photos or a another user’s photos by location.
– A new toolbar was added to the Album overview page for easier access to tag/edit/organize multiple photos.
– On the photo page you can now find a direct link to the image URL, and embed code which you can use on your own blog or website.
– You can now write your own personal message when you share Album or Photos.
– Improved Messages and Notifications. If multiple photos are tagged with people, keywords, and/or locations they will only trigger ONE message and not a message for every photo tagged.
– The last 5 recently viewed albums are now displayed in the Albums menu, for quick and easy access. – Downloading original photos now opens a “Save as” dialog. – User page now displays the last location where a user has been location tagged.
– Improvements and bugfixes made to both Album and Photo sharing.
– IE6 speed improvements when viewing shared content. Note: IE6 is NOT supported, but we try to make the best viewing experience for those visiting the site with it.
– Lots of bugfixes and minor enhancments.

UPDATE 7.36PM We are now up and running again 🙂

The data issue was related to a few users’ imported contacts from third-party services. Some data from these services had invalid data which slipped our filters. This has now been corrected.
