Faces.com allows people from around the world to interact with family and friends through pictures. You can even meet new friends and explore their worlds.

This site is relatively new and doesn’t implement features that some of the veteran online photo albums offer like a safe filter and photo contests.

Sharing & Storage

Faces.com offers several options to upload your pictures. You can send them via email or camera phone, upload them from your computer or use the PhotoSync, which uploads photos automatically. (The PhotoSync is only available to premium members).

Once your photos are uploaded, you can use the scrap booking feature or download free software to fix and manipulate your photos and print layouts. There’s even a feature to create animated slideshows complete with voiceovers, captions, ratings and comments.

Share your albums and slideshows with family, friends, co–workers or the whole world. You can tag your photos to be categorized in faces.com’s library so other members can easily find your pictures.

Summary

Faces.com is a relatively new player in the online photo sharing community—they’ve only been online since August of 2004. One thing that really stands out about Faces is they’ve designed a very user–friendly service that lends itself to seasoned veterans and those who are new to online photo sharing services.
