Recommendations for website for photos and trip reports??

Jump to last reply

I am trying to decide (again) what website to post photos to. I've used Kodakgallery, and it's pretty easy, but I really don't like the way the photos look. I've tried a few other sites, and it just frankly took too long to upload the photos, or once I had them uploaded I had to re-arrange them all over again. I like the way photos look on smugmug, but I found the site very slow both for posting and for viewing. I settled on Picassa because I can make minor tweaks to my photos on my computer, then upload them. I also like it because the upload is fast. But I don't like the fact that it doesn't have subfolders. And now that I've found Fodors (about 1 1/2 yrs ago), I'm writing trip reports, so I'd like a site that I can put that information into as well, not just photos.

What I'd really like is a site that I can use to edit photos (I don't do any fancy photoshop stuff or anything like that), and also post narratives. I'd like to include a few paragraphs as an introduction, and a bit of a narrative for various pieces of trip (longer than captions). I've looked at several sites that are true blogs, where you enter information each day, and people respond, but honestly I don't want to answer questions on the site. I just want a place to post everything and leave it alone, and send people the link. I also looked at a number of sites that focus so much on the narrative that the photos are secondary. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

What sites do you use, and why?
