Use dropbox to collect wedding photos (or any other group photos) with friends and family

After my wedding, I searched for hours trying to find the easiest way for all my friends and family to send me their digital photos. An FTP server would have worked, but would have been slightly more intimidating to the non-technical folk. I decided that a shared dropbox account was the perfect solution, and it worked out even better than I could have imagined. I received 1900 unique pictures in 2 weeks!! I created a new account, and sent the following email to everyone who attended: Thanks so much for making our special day an amazing one! Now that it is over we would love to get everyone's perspective. So, we would appreciate it if you could drop your photos in our dropbox (instructions below). This is an account that we will all share. This means that you can all check back in a week and download as many pictures as you like, and it also means that you can potentially delete all the pictures everyone else has uploaded… so be careful!
