privacy question

sorry if this has been posted before, I just discovered scrapbook today and I'm very impressed...

but I would like for a friend of mine to view my gallery that I want to keep private/password only. She, however, does not have lj and I think it'd be pointless for her to have to sign up an entire account just to see my pics.

is there anyway around this that I'm missing? thanks in advance.

Creating a LiveJournal account is quick and painless and will let them do all sorts of things including commenting with a username, viewing your private pictures, viewing your friends only posts, etc.

LiveJournal really isn't designed to cater to people who don't have accounts. We like people who sign up! It makes security so much easier to take care of.

So, in a word, no way to do what you want. Sorry!

Create an account for her ("audreys_friends") and for other people who you want to have access, friend the accoutn, and give her the username and password so she can see the pictures.

Ultimately the best thing you can do is just create a free account for her and friend it. It takes only a couple of minutes and it doesn't cost anything.

If there's only one or two pictures, you can set the gallery to Private and the pictures to Public, then e-mail her the direct URL for the image. Anyone who has the URL can access the picture, but they're pretty darn hard to guess, and nobody except you can get into the gallery without being sent the URL explicitly.

well, I thought I would be doing lj a favor by not having someone sign up who's not going to use any of their services, but i guess not. I just assumed scrapbook would be kinda like other photo sharing services where you can email a link of your private gallery to your friends, but it really is different in everything else so I shouldn't assume ;)

I like the suggestions you guys listed though. I just hope my computer-illiterate friend can adapt. Thanks again.
