Photo Hosting Sites

Postby StoneRoad » Mon Jan 04, 2010 9:50 pm

:?:

Which Photo hosting site(s) do you use? - and what reason(s) influenced your choice?

Personally, I use Fotopic (see signi!)
There are several reasons for this, the main reason is that you can get a choice of skins, and other features to design a "mini-website" with a look that suits you. In addition, I find the collections an easy topic-based rather than date-based way to arrange my images.

Stoneroad

PS Happy new year!

I use my own website and that provided by my ISP (Virgin Media, although the URL is still blueyonder)

I use fotopic but also use photobucket for when I want to post a picture at 800px. I like fotopics layout, I could do it manually with my own ISP's allowance but I prefer fotopics ease of use.

The only other biggie I suppose is flickr. davek I think hosts his own site using a downloadable format....though I maybe wrong.

Photobucket. But only 'cos it was the first I tried, found it easy enough to use and not bothered to look at any others.

Since the demise of fotopic, I had a look around, and eventually went over to flickr. I've got a pro account......


How did other people deal with the situation...?

I gave up on fl**kr when they "improved" the user interface ...
After another period of shopping around, I ended up at Ipernity.
You may have heard that Ip had some difficulties during 2016/7. These have been resolved and Ip is now owned and run by the user community, and things are looking up !

And now,
Fl1kr has been sold to smugmug.

I wonder how the new owners will deal with the large volume of free space users ?
