Why should I use phTagr?

With the photo sharing software phTagr you can create your own stock photos or web album. Upload your images, photos, videos, and GPS tracks from your vacation to your own cloud space and have full control about your image stock. Organize your pics with keywords, categories, city, country, or geo location information. Geo tag your photos and view fotos on a map.

Create your own social web gallery with your friends. Share your pictures privately through password protected accounts or invite others with simple authenticated link to your online photo album.  Receive email update of comments or new photography entries.

Further, since your videos movies are automatically converted to flash movies you can have your own video sharing website.
