Which web photo should i sign up for?
Hey fellow newbies!! .

I'am currently using picasa right now but i'am not sure if I want to stay with that. I'am thinking of moving to pbase. I kinda like the Interface but also have a open mind to flickr. What are your opinions on these three websites??.

Thanks again,.

Chris.

They all seem to be pretty good according to their fans. I have a full Flickr account, and love it. The only thing I don't care for (if it has not been changed yet) is that I cannot archive my RAW files there. That would be sweet. I think that is a standard issue though, so it isn't a big deal..

Otherwise, I'm very happy with Flickr, and it's parent company is pretty solid, so I doubt that it will go away any time soon. Also, if you buy the account (pretty cheap), you get unlimited photo storage that really works. The transfer speeds are very high, and consistant. The others might also be high now, but other posters will have to fill you in on that..

I really like pBase - nice, clean, professional look. flickr looks cheap and cheesy. I find myself much more likely to browse a pbase gallery than flickr...

I am quite happy with Smugmug - been there for a couple of years now. Pretty user-friendly, for newbies and pros.BigDog Ken Griffith.

It comes down to personal preference really. One user said flickr was great, another said it was lame and though pbase was great..

Me, I'm a flickr person myself. I think it's great..

I have a pbase account and I love the interface but you'll quickly eat up your space and have to buy more. At flickr, you are unlimited. I love the slideshow flickr does with an individual set. I would prefer pbase if they didn't have a limit which precludes putting up really large files..

There are some excellent ones, like zenfolio, I've seen here but switiching in a real pain so my advice would be to choose carefully. I mean you have to re-upload all your pics, etc., etc. I love the look of zenfolio but I've already spent money on the others and you have to stop somewhere. Still, I could be tempted, maybe..

Check out zenfolio...

Why do you need to put up large files? The only purpose that serves is giving the world free access to print quality hi-res images. I have 876 images on pbase and they only take up 282MB. They are 960x640 pixels saved with jpeg compression 10. Anything much more than that is overkill IMO...

I looked at PBase, flickr, smugmug, and several others before going with Zenfolio. Zenfolio is easy to work with, and it gives the largest photos to view (if you select slideshow). Check mine and see what I mean..

Uploading masses of photo is is particularly easy. I have twice uploaded 350MB at a time without problems..

Jerry... thanks for the link to your zenfolio. I graduated from Hays in 2005. Great to see someone else from Kansas around here!..

I asked this same question a few weeks ago and after days of reading posts I ended up going with Zenfolio. I like the way the site is set up and very user friendly. The first time I uploaded I couldn't believe how easy it was...Just drag and drop your photos into a large white box, Thats it .

The price was right also.. $35 after the $5 discount code which you could get from messaging any Zenfolio user._____________________________________________'Now you know, and knowing is half the battle' -Gi Joe.

My question is this: If my family and friends want to buy a photo online from Zenfolio do they have to register themselves? It looked that way to me...

Comment #13

With hosting being reasonably priced and capacious, would you consider setting up your own site? I recommend it for the flexibility and control over everything from the domain name to the visual appearance and functionality.Ade...

Hi Travis:.

No, persons can purchase prints of your photos on Zenfolio simply by clicking on "add to cart" at the top of the page. Try it out and see how it works..

If you still live in the area, come by the museum and I'll give you a behind-the-scenes tour...and we can chat photography as well..

Best wishes..

I get it!.

I have to click on the link provided by Zenfolio to open the image, before I can copy/paste the link here..

I guess it's easy once you know how!Bizy..

I use Flickr as a safe off site storage place for my high res images. I have several thousand images there, and most are private, as they are there for archiving. They are all licensed in various ways. Flickr gives you full control of how you license each photo. If I reserve all rights to a photo, all you can see is a low res version of it, no matter how big the file. If you want a high res copy, you have to ask me for one.



There are plenty of good reasons to upload full res images, and it is a pretty safe move. Just choose what you want to be public, and choose how you wish to license each photo, or group of photos. Flickr will take care of what resolution will be displayed for each one..

Flickr has great speed, and the unlimited cheap storage is tough to pass up..
