Everyone is proud of their photo collection. It may contain changes to family such as a wedding, a new mom's growing tummy, or friends, homes, pets - you name it! Some of us keep photo album collections on Flickr, Picasa, Google+, etc. Others upload videos documenting fun occasions in our lives to YouTube. I love the ability to capture my family's day-to-day antics because I didn't own a camera till about 18 years of age, and a video camera didn't come my way till I was 26 years old! Consequently, I missed a lot in capturing the happiest moments that occurred in those years.

Fast forward to 2011 - the world's knowledge is changing drastically and recording life's precious moments has become a lot simpler with technology, especially using our iDevices. I found the Pro-Share app to be a remarkably convenient, useful and time-saving means to getting my photos and videos on the sites that host these memorable collections. Pro-Share uploads your stuff to so many sites including Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, Picasa/Google+ and Twitter. It does so much more than simply upload quickly, however. You may edit your photos with text, enhance them, use photo effects, crop, etc. before you send them off to your web photo albums. I was very much impressed with all this social networking and photography app had to offer. Several features are listed below to whet your photographic appetite:

▪ Upload your photos and videos to social networking sites such as:
- Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Picasa/Google+, Twitter

▪ Upload your photo to share among friends using:
- Bluetooth and WiFi

▪ Use Photo Editing and Filters including:
- Crop and Rotate
- Brightness
- Sepia
- Grayscale
- Thermal
- Snow Fuzz
- Blur
- Find Edges
- Emboss
- Polaroidish

▪ Some innovative key features that make this app distinct:
- Create new albums with privacy
- Add description to photos
- Send full resolution photos
- Background Uploading
- Superior Upload Queue
- Create a photo batch and upload with a single tap
- Saved edited photos
- Accordion-style Coverflow for easy selection
- Grid view and detailed views

Using Pro-Share is wonderfully easy, and there's a simple tutorial you can read prior to, or during, your use of the app when you tap the "?" in the top left corner of your display. Open the app and you have the choice to work with Photos or Videos, view the tutorial or snap a new picture, all on the top of your display. You will see your photo collection here. (Note: this app like every other in the App Store is in the process of upgrading to iOS 5. Thus there may be one or two kinks until the next update. So at this point, click on Camera Roll-not All or Recent-to avoid the app closing out on you. This is only a temporary glitch and Camera Roll is where you want to begin working anyway!) The bottom of your screen holds 3 buttons: Albums, Queue and Settings. The Queue button allows you to cancel pictures you may have sent there to upload while the Settings button gives you options such as logging in to your social networks Services, Upload Quality, Queue and Help Tips.

Select your preferred photo, then either tap and hold to view the image in full or tap to immediately upload to your chosen network. Alternately, the Close Up button at the bottom of your screen will give you a full display of your photo. Tap the "i" button at the bottom right of screen to add text, then tap it again to have the comment inserted If you want to jazz up your photo, choose from among several options. The first button lets you add all sorts of effects to your pic if you want (a few of which are Sepia, Grayscale, Thermal, Snow Fuzz, Blur), the scissors lets you crop your photo using pinch and zoom and the rotate button rotates 360 degrees. Now go ahead and save your image to the device's photo album and then choose where to send it: Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Picasa/Google+, upload by Bluetooth or WiFi.

There are many other features to Pro-Share such as scroll through cover flow so you don't have to constantly go back to your camera roll to select a pic. There are tips that alternate on the bottom of your screen which I found to be helpful, but you are free to turn off this option in the Settings. You can spend a great deal of time exploring this app and sending out your photos whenever and wherever you want with only a few clicks, and as easily as counting 1, 2, 3! Life is so much simpler when you have the right innovative tools with which to work, and Pro-Share is just the clever app that fits the bill!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Pro-Share: Bulk Uploader for Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, Picasa/Google+, and Twitter is a fantastic way to easily edit and quickly upload your photo and video memories to all the major social networking sites!"
