Photo Storage
ou will likely need to get your photos put on a CD first in order to upload them from an internet cafe (easily done at local photo stores or equipped internet cafes). Most cafes do not allow you to install any kind of photo uploading software on their computers. If you have a plug and play camera that doesn't require special software, then you might be able to upload photos to a photo storage place on the internet  without getting them burned onto a CD first.

Many companies offer free places to store your photos or other files while you travel. Some of these places allow you to share your photos with friends and family as you travel and the ability to get prints of you photos when you get home at low rates.

Go To My PC a service that allows you to access your computer's hard drive from any computer connected to the internet. Access your e-mail, programs/applications, documents, etc. All data is protected with AES encryption using 128-bit keys. This service is not free.

Snapfish Free photo storage, sharing, photo editing tools, and 12˘ prints everyday.
