Forget email attachments: There are easier ways to send photos of your cuties. A new slew of photo-sharing apps helps you organize and safely distribute pics faster than you can say, “cheese.” Whether you want a sleekly designed digital album or a Facebook-esque timeline that spans the years, these apps do the job quickly while protecting your privacy. Flip through our album where we’ve broken down what makes each app unique and how to get it.


Contents: Sharing photos can be one big LifeCake. With this photo sharing app, store all your moments on one privately shared space so that you don’t have to go hunting through the hundreds of folders on your computer. Unlike a traditional photo album, LifeCake uses a timeline format that makes it easy to travel back to your favorite moments. Want a hard copy? LifeCake will also print an album and get it delivered right to your door.

Terms: Access your photos anywhere from Android, iPhone, tablets or Web. It’s free for 1GB of space and $36/year for 100GB. Perfect glossy books are $50 plus shipping for 80 pages.
