While there are plenty of online photo sharing sites, they don’t have the security or a user-friendly way to control the specific people who I want to see my photos. Fotobounce addresses these concerns by offering a way to create your own private photo sharing network on your own computer instead of online.
To use Fotobounce, simply download Fotobounce to your desktop. There is a free version (with ads) or a licenced version without ads for $49. Once Fotobounce is downloaded and installed, it will begin searching your computers for photos.
Once you specify the folder where your folders are located, Fotobounce automatically imports those photos into its own library. Part of that process includes looking at the photos and using advanced face recognition technology to allow you to automatically identify or “tag” people in your photos. This technology is very cool. As Fotobounce sorts through your photos, it will let you know if there are any unidentified faces. Then, you can specify who is in each photo, either by typing in a new name or by selecting from a current one.
Once your photos are imported, you can group and sort them into albums, and then share each specific album with a specific group of people. In order for people in your network (your bouncers) to view the photos, they will need to download Fotobounce and be given permission to view that album. If you want to share the photos on Facebook or Twitter, you can do that as well by right clicking on the photos and selecting which network you would like to post the photos to.
To build your own private photo sharing network, you can download Fotobounce here and start sharing!
