More Pics and Change of Service

Guess what. I got tired of Community Webshots.

No, it is not that it is not a decent service, but quite frankly, unless you upload their viewing tool (and you need to be a member), the viewing format for the general public is rather clunky. Because of that, I have been considering switching to Smugmug, which seems to be a lot more user friendly.

I am now testing Smugmug, and have uploaded the pics from Holiday Faire. Please take a minute to look at them, and compare them with the viewing from my previous posting, which is on Community Webshots, and tell me what you think. Uploading both gives me a good platform for comparison:

Here is the link to the Smugmug album: http://belfebe.smugmug.com/gallery/3848971#222732441

Here is the link (again) for the Community Webshots album: http://entertainment.webshots.com/album/561487400RejHLg

Is it me or even the quality of the pictures look different?

I just checked Consumer Reports (I have an online membership) for ratings, and they recommend three services: Buzznet, Flickr, and Smugmug. The main difference is that Smugmug offers archiving and unlimited uploads, which the other two don't. :-(

Being as it is that I take an inordinate number of pics, I think that Smugmug is a good choice for me. I also like all the customizing for galleries and albums. :-D

Oh, yes. I'd forgotten that - as a sort of annual birthmas present, my Dad pays for me to have a Pro account on flickr. I think it's 25/year or something.

Thanks!

And I also love the drag-and-drop way of uploading pics. So much easier!

I like photobucket, if only because it's linked in with LJ. Makes it easy to post pics and videos here :)

I also looked at Photobucket. It is really convenient. But I am sold with Smugmug drag-and-drop uploading feature, plus the unlimited uploads and archiving capabilities.

But Photobucket is mighty convenient for LJ'rs too. :-)
