There are links to a sister site that lets you receive faxes for free via your email as well. If you're starting to dabble in digital photography, check out the services on a site called photohighway.com. There's a buyer's guide, reviews and online communities where you can share your own digital pictures...

"We're going to have exhibition areas, contests every week, landscape photography, animals, all kinds of information and things that the consumer can participate in."

PhotoHighway's Marijane Shufro. If you're on vacation you can even drop into a cyber-cafe hook up your camera and upload your photos to the website.
