    Hey gang, uploading photos to Flickr, etc. is super easy -- anyone you want can see the photos.

    BUT, what if you are on a trip with 4 friends, and you all want to share photos with each other? Are there online services that provide free photo sharing where *multiple users* can upload to an album?

    If security is a concern, maybe only the 4 specific (registered and signed in) users could upload new photos - email addresses or usernames designated by the mod...

    Is there any site out there that does this?

    SmugMug allows you to add a guest password of sorts that allows password-holders to change the site around.

    OK, here's the low-down:

    Pros ($150/yr) can give out guest passwords, which let password holders to change the site around (including adding photos) (see http://smugmug.com/help/guest-passwords).

    Expensive, right? Well there's another option: photos by email (open to all users, lowest is $40/yr)
    See http://smugmug.com/help/camera-phones .

    Save yourself $5 and me $10; use the referral code AD2YtsjXceosE if/when you sign up.

    I guess I'm just confused as to why the major photo hosting sites wouldn't have a group-contribute option. Sharing trip/holiday photos from multiple sources is such a pain.

    I'm almost certain that 23hq.com supports this.

    I'll post later when I'm sure if they do or don't :)

    PBase does. A lot of Yahoo-based photography discussion groups use PBase to upload and share their images. Members of the group have the password and then can upload their images and have individual galleries or upload to a shared gallery for competitions. Check out http://www.pbase.com. I think it costs $25/year for membership.
