The Web Photo Sharing Site Faceoff

This post comes in pretty handy for me. I've been on the lookout for something a little better in the way of photo services.

I run my own photo gallery (surprise, surprise), but there's nothing "extra" about it. For example, Flickr makes it easy to organize, re-organize, share, insert in blogs and Web pages, and a new, nifty feature lets you organize your pictures by where they were taken (Flickr Map - click on the pink dots to see pictures). (Dan's Account)

However, I'm not into paying for the PRO account in Flickr, since I already pay quite a bit for my hosting service (my website). Though, the service is neat enough that I'm still thinking about it.

Anyway, it's nice to see a review on a few others. Check it out. Let me know if you give any of these services a try. It would be something nice to write up in your student blog.

I've used Webshots for a couple years now, but I'm not comfortable with the changes to the 'cheap' seats (that would be my free membership)....

Hi Ellen,

Thanks for commenting. I was beginning to think that I was posting to myself (blogging version of talking to myself).

Yep, these sites are like any good crack dealer. Get them hooked on the good stuff and when then want more, charge 'em. I can't blame them, of course, but I would like to find some place that doesn't charge ;)
