Flickr introduced guest passes!

Update: Keith pointed out in the comments that Picasa Web added this feature awhile ago. Thanks for the tip, Keith.

I too often brood over whether to make my Flickr photos public or private. If I make photos public, I risk random creeps ogling pictures of my wife or even worse my kid. If I make the photos private, I force non-net savvy family members to sign up for a Flickr account, which they probably won't do, which means they'll never see the photos.

According to Lifehacker, I don't have to trade privacy for convenience anymore. Flickr has added the ability to share private sets via email, and they don't require the recipient to sign up!

Picasa web albums has supported this for a while, and its UI won't torture your friends and family like Flickr's will.
