Looking for recommendations. Something dirt simple for the less technically adept family members to share a common set of photo albums from mobile devices ?

I've been a Smugmug subscriber for years - mainly use it b/c I have family around the globe (mixed iOS and Android) that like to post their pics online

It's not free though, so if you're looking for free, then Smugmug is not for you

This is my referral link: [secure.smugmug.com]

Facebook can serve this purpose.

Google Photos is also available to any user.

Do you have a Prime Account? If so, might want to look at Amazon Photos. I'm not sure how or if you can share photos and backups though.

Google Photos. I don't think Google will go out of business or get acquired anytime soon. "Click and drag" easy. When ready to share, Google creates a link to a slideshow. It's pretty simple.

Another vote for Google Photos. Easy to use.

I use Facebook to share certain photos with family. Max width is 2048 px. I also hav a SmugMug paid account for work I’m developing for possible sale. No restrictions on size, I believe.

ArsTechnica just did a write up of this, definitely worth a look, especially for anyone who is concerned about running out of free space with Google.
