I am giving a workshop in early April on using flickr. It's the last in a digital photography workshop series at my library, because, after people learn how to use and take nice pictures with their digital camera, the flickr workshop will show them one option for doing something with those digital pictures.
I thought I'd get a jump on preparing for it, by compiling a list of websites I'd like to mention in addition to flickr - not just online photo sharing websites, but websites that let you edit photos, sites that have free archives of photos, etc.
In the process of working on it, it occurred to me that it'd be worthwhile to post it here, too. It's a long list, but certainly not all-inclusive, so if your favorite isn't listed here, please share.
- flickr.com - my favorite photo sharing website
- Webshots.com - Photos for social networking
- PhotoBucket.com - Photo hosting and sharing
- Snapfish.com - Sharing and printing photos
- Picasa - Google's photo sharing service
- KodakGallery.com - Kodak's online photo service
- Picnik.com - editor linked with flickr
- Splashup.com - very similar to Photoshop (perhaps not for the novice)
- PXN8.com - easy-to-use editor
- Phixr.com - easy-to-use editor
- Fotoflexer.com - easily add effects and distortions to photos
- ShrinkPictures.com - resize photos
- Graphita.com - add word balloons, captions and objects to photos
- Creative Commons - photos with creative commons license
- PublicDomainPictures.net - all types of photos
- U.S. National Archives - historical and other government photos
- NASA Earth Observatory - earth and planet photos
- National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - sea, air and other science photos
- Great Images in NASA - historical NASA photos
- DK Clip Art - travel and other photos from the DK books
- morgueFILE.com - royalty-free photos
- Wikipedia list of public domain image resources
Other flickr-related Information:

Also, this list will probably change a bit closer to the workshop.
