Picasa, Flickr and Photobucket etc. have made us to believe that if you share photos online, they won’t be available with Full Resolution. People will be able to view the full picture but not the minute details those high-resolution photos of your Bahama and Jamaica trips contain. And probably we have come to accept it.
Now let me ask, what is the use of those Canon 10MP Digital Camera with 5x Wide Angle Optical Stabilized Zoom, Sony 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom and Super Steady Shot Image Stabilization cameras and that Nikon D90 DX 12.3MP Digital SLR Camera you bought this Thanksgiving if you can’t share the high-resolution high quality photos with your friends.
If you don’t know, when you upload your photos on Picasa, Flickr and Photobucket etc. their file size is reduced to make sure they load faster without affecting their quality. In this conversion, photos loose the pixels your high-resolution camera captured.
If you are like me who want to share the best with friends, then you will love Closr.it.
Closr.it is a service which lets your friends see the High resolution photos online. You can show off your photography talent to your friends. No matter how big is the file and which camera took it. Just go and upload your photos to this service and share it with your friends using the simple widget available right on your photo.
Your friends can zoom in to every detail you captured by simply using the small +/- icons and dragging the photo here and there with mouse. Isn’t it cool?
You must create an account on Closr.it to start with (and that makes sense too). Start uploading the photos and share them by sending the URL via email or embedding them into your blog etc. Best of all it is FREE. Check out one image I have uploaded: http://www.closr.it/show/OR6aUzPzTMz
So go ahead and give it a try. I am sure you will love it. Don’t forget to share your views about it in the comment section. And if you know of any similar service, then let us know that too.
