Our members require that I ask permission to post any photo (almost) on the homepage or the public areas of the site. So I have to either ask or put them in the private website. This means two things: We have no pictures of children on the public site or homepage, and I have to assemble galleries in a WordPress plugin to post pictures. I use NextGen Gallery because it has lots of features but since I don't use it often, I have to relearn it each time — my problem. And I never learned it very well in the first place. Lazyest gets up the pictures in a hurry, but doesn't have features. If we used Picassa or Flickr, other people could put up the photos more easily. I'm years behind on all the photos I've been sent and there are many more I would like to ask for. The security issue is that they don't want pictures of their children made public or open to hacking. Although some use Picassa and Flickr for their private albums, they are concerned that with so many members having access —61+ adults and 21 children — the access would spread. This is not my fear but I have to respect it. One granddaughter's pictures are open for all to see on Facebook. One solution I'm considering is to only post pictures of children a few years younger than they are now. Thus they are not recognizable. Another concern is that parents would be making decisions about pictures of their children being pubic that the children might later be embarrassed about. Things published on the web can never be pulled back, particularly if they go viral. On another note, when I was looking at the pictures on your site, I kept thinking the people were our people in your community. I could name each one of them with a look-alike, dress-alike here!
