    I have a Mac Pro Laptop...

    I tried this afternoon Instagram and that was a disaster - I couldn't delete the one picture I posted, I realize I bought a 3rd party app Photo Grids For Instagram or else it would not let me post but now I can't delete. Maybe the problem is trying to post & delete from a laptop & not from a phone. However, when attempting to look at my account via the phone, I couldn't see my lone posted picture...

    So how do you feel about Flickr or can you suggest any other site/sites?

    Thanks in advance,

    Enezdez

    I've not been a huge fan of Flickr.

    Check out 500px

    Me too, I like that it's also got a feed so you can see what the folks you follow have been doing.

    Why don't you use the FREE Instagram app instead of paying for some other app that let's you use Instagram ??

    I also use Flickr. FAR better for photos than instagram.

    All sorts of options--depends upon what you want to use it for.

    I have a flickr account. I use it for backup. My biggest issue is that uploads of large albums (and then having to create an album for them) is laborious unless you get a paid account.

    I have never had a smug mug account but from what I understand, if you were going to have albums you share with clients, it would probably work pretty well.

    Since you say you have a Mac, have you considered using iCloud? Load everything in to Photos (which would serve like Lightroom for your purposes--to organize and tag), then use other software to do serious editing (be it PS, Affinity, Gimp, Photomatix, Nik collection, etc.) and then your apple OS automatically backs up to the cloud.

    I mainly use Flickr. I also had PhotoBucket but closed the account when they went bat$#!t with the third party site restrictions. I'm cheap so it has to be free.

    Flickr s great for photo hosting, it used to be great for it's groups & the discussions about every class of photography under the sun, but it's not so good for that now :(

    I use flickr because it integrates with LR. Makes my workflow a tad easier.

    I use Flickr and Instagram. Instagram is easy to post and delete from your phone. Flickr is easy from your pc. The Flickr app leaves out a few key features.
