What is you favorite site for posting photos on-line?

And why?

Right now I can't access most of the on-line photo sites (old browser/long story) but I'll be getting a new computer/ISP soon and have a lot of recent trip photos (Paris, London, Kent, Northern CA coast, etc) to put up.

It isn't free (I think $20 per year?), but is designed for professional photographers to share photos, so it is designed really well. Works great for pictures of my daughter.

A simple one is Photobucket. You can get a free account & if you like it & want to load tons of pics, you can upgrade your membership.

Meant to add that they have links for each photo you store there to post at different places so if you want to post the pictures you don't have to go through all the <a href, etc.> stuff.

For anyone who has used pbase, is there a way to upload photos in a batch or do you have to do each photo individually?

Another vote for photobucket.com !!!

I love it. I can create an album and email the username and a special password to friends and family (you keep the admin password so that you can edit). They get to view your pics at their leisure... it is great and simple. Tho, I do like the site that nycjenny used for her photo trip report, but I think it may be too advanced for me!!!

One down side to PB, it wont allow but 80 characters for any captions you may want to add.

I use pbase and it costs $23 a year for 300mb of storage. I have over 500 shots and am only using 43mb. You don't have to have guests sign in to view your pictures.

surfmom - Make a zip file of the ones you want to upload, then upload that file.

I use community webshots--it's free and you can create public or private albums. It's also easy to save the pictures off the site to your own computer.

http://community.webshots.com/

The only downside is you can only put 100 (or so) pictures per album, and only allowed a few albums per account.

I just create multiple accounts as my picture collection grows. (E.g. Michelle1, Michelle2, Michelle3, etc.)

Please be careful when you go to the "photobucket" site that has been suggested by others in the forum.

Being an avid photographer and based on the recommendation, I went to the site and randomly clicked on a links called "recent pictures" in order to see how the pictures were displayed. I was absolutely shocked when the "recent pictures" included hard core porn on the public site. I almost couldn't believe my eyes. This was their PUBLIC information site--no sign in, no warning, nothing. I can't believe they don't have a "filth" filter on their public site

I take thousands of photos every year and I use www.photosite.com It is great. Again, be careful visting photobucket and certainly don't let your children go there.

Although I gave a thumbs down to Photobucket, I want to give a big thumbs up to http://www.pbase.com (recommended by kelliebellie) This is a site where really good photographers hang out and, in addition to a nice interface for adding and editing photos, I was mesmerized by the member photo galleries. Stunning! I just spent an hour just looking at the fabulous photos in the public galleries and had to force myself to stop

I'm another huge fan of webshots. Not only for photo sharing, but for the photos of others - I spend much less time at our various destinations taking photos since discovering webshots.

It's also an excellent free program for creating your own screensavers. When I installed my boss's new PC last year, I found the most amazing collection (hundreds) of the Red Sox/World Series on Boston.com, which I was able to quickly download into webshots - and thrill him beyond measure...

Mine are all up at www.flickr.com, which I love because it's a true hosting site, not one that exists for the purpose of selling prints, etc.

Another vote for pbase. It's easy to use, your photos are displayed very professionally - you can choose background, what and how much information you want to go with them, etc. They are full screen (not just a small box with a bunch of advertising which detracts from the phtots like on several sites), and easy to scroll through, people don't need to sign in. It does cost $23 a year but for all you get it's a bargin. The people who run it are very professional.

My travel photos are at www.pbase.com/annforcier

Wow isabel, what GREAT photos you take! I'm going to Paris next month and I am getting such great ideas for taking photos from the remarkable composition and lighting of your shots. You are a remarkable photographer. Pbase.com is really good, I think I will more my photos ther. Thanks for sharing!

I have a question or two about PBASE.

Are you able to re-arrange and label the pictures fairly easily. I used the Yahoo site for recent pics from Paris and it took hours to do these features and it was cumbersome. And after all of that, they are no longer in the order that I put them.

When you load the pictures, do they load in the order that you had them on the camera or your personal computer. I once spent time labeling pictures on my computer in chronologic order. When I loaded them up to a site, they all were in alphabetic order and out of context. I have not found a site that is as user friendly as I would like.

But I do enjoy PBASE.
