"My photography workflow is based on two key tools: the
digiKam photo management application and a Bubba Two personal
Linux-based server. While I use digiKam for processing and managing
photos, Bubba Two takes care of storing my image files and backs
them up in the cloud. But that's only one of Bubba Two's many
talents. This little server also comes with its own photo album
software which lets you instantly share photos on the Web. It's not
a Flickr killer, but it can come in rather handy if you want to
turn your photos into a photo album and share it with a selected
group of people in the entire world with a minimum of fuss.
""By why not use one of many photo sharing services instead?"
you may ask. For a number of reasons. Say, I want to share photos
from my last trip with a few friends and family. Using Flickr or
any other service for that would mean uploading a few gigabytes of
photos, which takes time and can be rather impractical if I have to
remove them afterwards."
