So I took some photos recently and there are way too many to viably send by e-mail. So as an alternative, I would like to share them on a website where people can view them, but only if they have the link.
The first two things you're probably going to say is "use Imgur" and "use Flickr", but let my tell you why I don't think either is a usable solution.
First, Imgur doesn't look very professional. To somebody viewing my photos, it would look like this in a web browser, which looks extremely unprofessional with the most viral images being on the right hand side. Not to mention the "Next Post" button that takes you to the front page of Imgur.
I can't use Flickr because to my understanding, if I want to create a private album and give people access, they are forced to sign up and have me give them privileges. I think that is completely unreasonable expecting people to coordinate with the hundreds of potential people I would want to share with.
Alternatively, you might suggest that I just upload them to my public Flickr page. My answer to that is; Not only no, but fuck no.
Any help would be appreciated.
