Yogile is a free, online photo sharing service that allows you to upload bunch of photos to an album and share them with your friends. The great part is that others can also upload photos to your album, without the need of registering with the service or making any account. This keeps them free from the hassle of providing their private information, side by side allowing them to easily contribute to your album. In this way, the overall photo sharing becomes incredibly fast and private among groups. This might be a good idea in cases when all of you take pictures on a common occasion, from different angles with different devices, and want to share them with each other.
You can create multiple albums within your Yogile account. Each album generates a customizable URL that you can share with your friends. Now they can either register with the service if they want to, or simply upload photos anonymously. They are also allowed to download photos; Yogile creates an archive of the entire album to be downloaded faster.
The free version is limited to upload upto 100 MB of photos (per month) to the account. Moreover, the albums get automatically deleted after 14 days. However, there’s option to go pro and get unlimited photo uploads, unlimited number of albums, and lifetime validity for albums.
The process starts by choosing a custom title for your first album and uploading photos for the same. As soon as the uploading finishes, you will be able to view your album, wherein you can view photos in different thumbnail views, sort them based on date, change settings of the album, download photos as archive, view a slideshow the photos, or share them with your friends.
To share photos, you click on the Share button. As soon you click this button, a link will be generated which you can mail to your friends to allow them to upload or download photos from your albums.
The service will prompts you to create an account and upgrade to pro to have unlimited access of the storage and time limit for storing albums. You can sign up using a valid ID and password. And once you register successfully, you can continue using the service without worrying about losing your albums.
