Pingram: This site is Pinterest meets Instagram. Literally.

So it’s not surprising to find that there’s a new site, Pingram, which finds a way to combine the two. So what does Pingram do exactly? It gives you a way to browse your Instagram feed, and popular photos, as well as see the comments that have been posted on Instagram – using Pinterest’s layout. When you open up a photo on Pingram, it’s displayed as it would normally be seen using Instagram’s native links. However, as far as any engagement directly on the site goes, you can’t comment on photos, and are limited to ‘pinning’ photos from the feed to your Pinterest profile. There has already been quite a bit of concern over whether or not Pinterest is continuously violating copyright laws. Is access to their Instagram profiles in a Pinterest-like layout enough to appease users when it comes to having their photos showing up on other people’s Pinterest profiles?

Best Bets for Photo Sharing Sites

When I was a kid, "photo sharing" often meant sitting in a photo booth and then giving away the picture strip that it produced. (See how to make a modern, digital version by reading "Turn Your Digital Pictures into a Photo Strip. ") Of course, these days, the easiest way to share photos is by posting them online at a photo sharing site. And there is no shortage of such sites, either; I've lost track of how many photo sharing sites let you post your snapshots online. So this week, I've rounded up my five favorites. Flickr Even if you only know photo sharing sites in passing, you certainly know Flickr. The most common way to use Flickr is with a free account, though the free version of Flickr is almost painfully restrictive, especially if you are an enthusiastic photographer who posts a lot of photos. Flickr allows you to upload video clips, but the site treats video like that cousin you never really liked. 500px I've recently become a big fan of 500px.

File sizes: now more bigger! Flickr Explains Their Copyright, TwitPic Terms Still Shady. With all of the recent controversy surrounding copyrights on the photo-sharing service TwitPic, Flickr made a wise decision to chime in regarding their rules of photo ownership. The controversy started over TwitPic’s updated terms of service , which state that all content uploaded to the site is the copyrighted work of the uploader. However, TwitPic also retains the right to use and distribute that content on TwitPic or affiliated websites. If an external source wants to use a TwitPic photo for commercial purposes or distribution (excluding a retweet), they must get permission from TwitPic.

This is where things are kind of troubling. TwitPic is claiming that anyone who wants to use a photo for commercial purposes must get permission directly from them and not the user who owns the photo. Flickr, perhaps in an effort to snap up users who are leaving TwitPic, posted an entry on their blog about photo ownership and copyright, aptly titled “At Flickr, your photos are always yours.” XnView: Software for reading, organizing and processing images.
