Good online site for posting pix?
I'd be grateful to get recommendations of where to post my photos online. I've used Panoramio previously (which is neat because of the links into Google Earth) but I notice people here use mainly other sites..

Any recommendations? What are the pros and cons of each site?.

There is no real review of online sites anywhere so you have to take a tour of each one and decide for yourself..

Sites fall broadly into two categories - those where you pay nothing (and probably drown in advertising pop ups as a result and/or have very small photos displayed) and those where you pay..

With the non paying sites I believe that you often have to resize you photos to fit their format - Quite tedious. with the bigger players you just upload your original photo.

Zenfolio and Smugmug are generally most popular among the paying sites. You will need to take a look at the output from galleries on those sites to judge what you get for your money..

I am only really now familiar with Zenfolio (though I did look at Smugmug). I think it has the best user interface..

Details here:http://www.zenfolio.com/zf/features.aspxhttp://www.zenfolio.com/zf/tour.aspx.

I have never know Zenfolio down other than for occasional pre-advertised mainetenance. Download speeds to the UK are reasonable. If you take a look at my site it may help you to know that I aim now for a file size of 2.5-3 MB so as to achieve a reasonable download speed (Try the Heritage Opera Elixir gallery as a recent example)..

Hope that helps. Do come back to me if I can help further.Chris Elliott.

Hi Sean,.

I also use Zenfolio, and am very happy with it. It is easy to upload and manage galleries. Most of my photos are between 5 and 9 MB and have not had any problems - I could resize them and make them smaller for upload and web display, but I don't need to take taht extra step in Post Processing, and I am grateful for that..

See my link below for an example..

That is a "given". That is the only review site I was able to find on the web when I searched. Trouble is it is not comprehensive and/or not up to date. If I bang in search criteria that should bring up Zenfolio and Smugmug neither appears! So I guess it is just another sponsored link site. Pity..

Having been with Smugmug for two years now (while still occasionally test-driving other sites!), I am very happy where I am, and recommend Smugmug to anyone. Good customization & privacy features, helpful forums and staff, combined with ease-of-use (both for me and my friends and family). The option to sell prints and products is good too. I ordered one of my pictures in a 20x30 size print for a friend and was very, very impressed by the quality of it..

Give their (and anybody else's) free trial period a go with a small group of pictures - say 10 or 20. See how they look, can be arranged, and which feels right to you. Many people are stuck on pbase, while others love only flickr, zenfolio, or Smugmug..

Only you can know what works for your tastes and needs..

Good luck!BigDog Ken Griffith.

Zenfolio is really easy to use. You can take advantage of a free trial period to see if it fits your need. Check out my Zenfolio site below..
