I shot a 3 show recital last weekend and need to distribute these images to the parents. I would normally use dropbox and create a gallery and just send that link out but dropbox is changing up it's gallery method. I'd like to have a password protected gallery so only no public access. I'd like for it to be browse able like a gallery with a download option. Any other recommendations for this?

I use PhotoShelter but I pay $10/m; have a custom domain name, as many public galleries as I want plus also private password protected ones. Click on my name in the signature.
I'm pretty sure that there are others out there

I use Zenfolio and have been happy with it. It would do exactly what you want but there is a subscription fee.

That is a lot of photos!

I use DropBox to share photos by sending a link to the folder to those I want to share with. The URL for a folder is so complicated I don't think it is possible to guess it. I don't know how anyone could get to any DropBox folder without being provided a link. That seems just as good as a password to me. You could use a URL shortener to make the URL that you send out more compact if you like. TinyURL, Bitley and the Google URL shortener are a few that I have used.

You could just use flickr...make it viewable to only friends, and then get the parents to create accounts...mark them as friends, and only they will see it, and be able to download...and go through the album like a gallery

I recently shot a middle school graduation ceremony and after-party at my kids' school. I uploaded the pics to Flickr as private photos in a shared album, then passed on the link to the families (after shortening it to a memorable customized URL via tinyURL). The only downside was that I had to make my account pics downloadable by anyone but since I have very few public pics on Flickr anyway, it didn't matter much.

Thanks for the input all. I think I'll try the flicker option. I've been holding out on Flickr for awhile now but time to move forward.

I really like that TinyUrl option.... never knew of that. Glad I asked the question here.

Also... ya it's alot of photos but you tend to try to snap at least one per kid per dance. I could say that you really got about 50 GOOD keepers. Just how it usually works out.

Ok flickr sucks. so to recap this process to make sure I"m doing things right

You have to add photos through the camera roll. Then add to album. but you set the status of those photos through the camera roll. BUT when you are in camera roll it's not being sorted right by time taken. I'm trying to upload by show, there was 3 shows. I uploaded show 1 added to album then trying to upload two but everything is all mixed. I cannot find a way to sort by date taken.

I hate learning new crap. why oh why cannot this be easy.

Just go back to DropBox. Your pictures will be easy to access and just as secure. Only those with the link you send them will have access and they don't need to load any software or sign up with DropBox.

You can upload them all to an album, and then organize the album by date

I just use Flickr uploader, so I don't understand the way you are doing it

Go to the organizer to edit the album settings

All photos are from same date but when they are in the camera roll it's all not organized there for me to place into albums.

i've never used the camera roll...but if you click on the photo, or hit select all you can then click "add to album" below the images...click create new album...once you have an album it should be easy to organize

the way to get to organize is to hover over 'you' at the top, and scroll down to the bottom where it's listed...there you can edit albums, or add images to albums

if it's all random i wonder if it's "magic view" instead of "view by upload date"
