For the last couple of weeks I've been trying out Picasa, a
digital photo organizing program. This is *great* software, the
best I've used in the field. It's very easy to use and I love the
interface. It's much better than the rather stodgy software that
came with my digital camera, that's for sure.

You can use the program to easily email photos to friends and
family members. Picasa also allows you to export complete albums
as web pages. There are several web page templates you can choose
from that generate thumbnails of the images in the album. Clicking
on the thumbnails opens a full sized image. Using the "Export
album as web page" option is a great way to easily share multiple
photos. Once you have uploaded the web page and images to a
website you can simple email the link to your friends and family.

Picasa is now owned by Google and is free. From the download site:

"Everything you need to enjoy your digital photos in a single
software product:

Auto-transfer photos from your digital camera.
Organize and find pictures in seconds.
Edit, print, and share photos with ease.
