    Where do you host your album, if you dont have your own website yet? Who has the best terms of service regarding them usingyour photos?


    I was trying to use Jambum, but when I go to publish it, I keep getting an error! Im a bit frustrated~:er:

    if I'm not mistaken, jalbum does not host images. It's merely an application that allows you to take all of your images, formats them for web viewing and then allows you to ftp them to a site you already have set up. I use it for my 'gallery' on my site. They may be into hosting too by now, I'm not sure, but I thought they were just a stand alone product and not a host.

    For stuff I upload for viewing here, I use photobucket.

    Flickr. Better people, more people, better community, more well known, much more well structured, direct for the artist, not just hosting.

    To host my images, i use shareapic, because they have a automatic thumbnail option for your images that you can use anywhere and they pay you for the image views you get. They dont pay alot, but its better than nothing!

    With the thumbnail option, your post just looks better, because instead of having 5 full size images where people have to scroll around alot, they get 5 thumbnails that links to a image that is resized to fit their screens and if they want the full size image, they can get that also.

    I use Photobuket for forum posting and general use.

    I also use Photo Lucidity for a collected gallery, but it's not like PB, I can not hotlink.

    I use Flickr and Smugmug, I like Smugmug a lot more and don't mind paying for it.

    Flickr user. If I needed a more professional "look", I would be hosting my own website and design it myself all off of a shared server somewhere.

    For $25US/year, UNLIMITED, it is hard to beat. Slideshow is acceptable, performance is good, 4 sized pics (from thumbnail to orignal size) are auto-generated... the groups are excellent, the security is so-so, but that is the same EVERYWHERE. If you have concerns about people stealing your work, don't post to the web anywhere, period.

    That is one of the reasons i only upload a mall amount of my photos and most that i upload i resize by 75%, reduce the DPI to 72 and put my name on it :wink:

    Currently i use a program called "Batch It! Ultra" to do all that for me.
