What is the best way to share iPhoto photos and movies?  I know I can share my photo stream but what if I want to share movies and photos that are not in my 30day/1000 photo stream?


I don't like google drive+ because only google recipients can access.


I use Drop Box sometimes but a bit of a drag that I need to manually select the photos first, then put into my drop box to share.


Flickr seems like an option because it is a sharing option in iPhotos...do recipients need a yahoo/flickr account to recieve?



MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

The basic "My Photo Stream" hold only 1000 photos and only the last month, but the limits on "Shared Streams" are upload limits per time:  see:


iCloud: Photo Stream limits


Added: "Photo Stream" and "Shared Photo Stream" can only be used for photos, not for videos.

With Mt. Lion you can also use a Shared Photo Stream - Shared Streams have no time limit. That can be published as a public web site, see:  iCloud: Using and troubleshooting Shared Photo Streams


Flickr:  When you publish an album as a Flickr-set, you can set up the sharing options from the web page - make the page public or open only to invited guests, also you can copy the link to the set and send it as an email invitation.
