I want to scan old color slides using a Nikon Coolscan on Mac OS X Version 10.5.8. I want a program that will allow me to index these files and add descriptions, dates, locations and other information. I would like this program to upload to an image sharing service like Picasa, Flickr, or Shutterfly so that I can print them out and share them with others but also keep them private. I don't want third parties to be able to copy and print them.

I assume that you are aware that once you moved an image onto the Web, other people will have access to it (even it it's marked private). And you won't be able to prevent your sharing partners from copying and printing at all. – patrix Jul 1 '12 at 8:33

That's precisely what iPhoto is for. Google has discontinued the Picasa exporter for iPhoto, but there are numerous other exporters including:

Flickr exporter, and an exporter for Shutterfly.
