"Photo sharing is the publishing or transfer of a user's digital photos online, thus enabling the user to share them with others (whether publicly or privately).
This functionality is provided through both websites and applications that facilitate the upload and display of images. The term can also be loosely applied to
the use of online photo galleries that are setup and managed by individual users, including photoblogs."

There's a nice introduction to image sharing - Photo sharing in Plain English - on the commoncraft website (no longer able to be embedded sorry!)
