Welcome to the latest edition of Ask the MACist, the column where I answer your Mac and Mac-related questions with hopefully more clarity and insight than you could ever need. As always, I want to thank those of you who sent in questions this week. They are much appreciated. Please, keep it up!

And remember, if you have a question about anything Mac, Mac-related, or even something about other technology like TiVo, cell phones, Blackberry or even Windows, send it to me, The MACist, at: themacist at gmail dot com. Ok, let's get to it.

Our question this time around comes from Jennifer in Los Feliz. She asks: "Hi, I'm looking for some online places to post photos for my friends and family to see. Which ones do you like?"

With the advent of affordable and high-quality digital cameras, the need arose for places online to display photos for friends and family to see, enjoy or, in some cases, print. In the old days you would have a film camera and you would shoot your pictures, drop your exposed film off at a local drug store or perhaps even a one-hour photo place and then you would get some nice prints for your efforts. These prints then went into various photo albums which were only pulled out during various holidays or when you were feeling particularly nostalgic.
