Ask Engadget: best online photo album with public contributions?

We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, then here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget inquiry is from Jeff, who wants to crowdsource his wedding photography without any mess. If you’re looking to ask one of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

“As part of my wedding plans, we’re expecting plenty of our friends to take pictures of the big day on their smartphones and cameras. I’d like to create a public online photo album to let everyone upload the pictures to one place, and then I can download them later. I’d really rather not have anyone set up an account anywhere (so Flickr won’t work) and, ideally, I’d like those who shoot in .RAW to be able to upload the full sized files. Any ideas and suggestions of places would be great, thanks!”

Well, actually, your humble narrator has this same problem early last year. My solution, which won’t work for you, was to sign up with a Flickr Pro account and set up a new group. As you can email in images to a specific group email address, we sent this address out on our invitations. That way, anyone who took pictures could just email them straight to the site. As you’ve said, that’s not going to work with .RAW images, so let’s turn this question over to the community and see what they can come up with.
