Amiglia - Social Photo storage for GenealogistsAmiglia is a new service offered via the web which is currently in Beta. I suggest you take a look--beta users get lifetime memberships.
What is it?
A way of storing photos and presenting them in a variety of different ways. The most interesting way, however, is in a family tree. You define the relationship between the photos (mom, dad, child, spouse, etc.) and it presents a flash-based family tree of the photos. Perfect for genealogy!
It also allows you to geo-locate your photos and will produce maps through Google Maps that show push buttons for where your photos were taken overlaid on Google Maps (when you click on the pushpin button, you see the related photos).
It allows video uploads (limit 5mb), imports from flickr or PhotoShop Album, tagging and searching of photos, animated slideshows (great for trips), and uploading by several easy methods, including email.
They recently added admin rights separate from upload rights, and continue to add features regularly. They even have a blog for comments and discussion on development of the site. They have a demo that's relatively easy to follow.
How Much Will it Cost?
Amiglia Basic will be free, but will be limited to seven family members who can contribute, and ceiling of 100 mb or photo storage space. $50/year expands that to unlimited family contributors and 5 gb of storage space, while $100/year removes limits altogether. There even a pro version that allows photographers (genealogists?) to set up sites for their clients, who will have a full function site free for a year, then opt to pay the appropriate fee annually thereafter.
I've set the skeleton of a site for my family at mann.amiglia.com.
