Default Read closely




Examine the terms of service before you sign up for an online photo site. Don't give in to the temptation to skip that. To avoid confusing legal terms, check out the website's “frequently asked questions” or FAQ section. It could have the answer you want.

Google, noting that legal documents can be onerous, offers a “Terms of Service Highlights” written in plain English.

Default Seek a resolution




Find out if your photo-sharing site lets you download high-resolution versions of your photos, so you can transfer your pictures to another website if the policies change.

Picasa offers the service for free, but many do not, including Shutterfly, Kodak and Snapfish. Flickr lets you download high-resolution photos with either a paid account or if you allow others to distribute your images.

Default Question deletion



Clarify a photo site's policy on erasing photos. Some sites, such as Kodak and Snapfish, will delete images if you don't adhere to their policies after multiple warnings.

Shutterfly may delete accounts inactive for over 180 days, but spokeswoman Gretchen Sloan said this policy is not enforced. If you decide you want to retrieve photos you deleted, several sites, including Fotki, Shutterfly and Snapfish, make this possible by holding on to images for a few days or sometimes even a month and a half.

Default Do the math



Don't sign up for a free photo-sharing site without comparing the cost of printing photos with other sites. You could save money on photo storage but end up paying more money for printing and shipping your images.
