Where do you post digital pictures from your trip?

After doing some comparing, I chose Shutterfly several years ago for online managing of my digital photos. I like the quality of their prints and of the books and the calendars that I have created. I've made extensive use of Shutterfly's share feature, so that friends and family can view our pictures from holidays or trips. It's nice that they don't have to join to view.

What I am looking for now is a site where I can post my pictures and then publicize a link to them, in connection with, say, a trip report. Ideally there would be thumbnails that would enlarge to full screen when clicked, and the option to run a slide show.

Ultimately, I'd like to do my own web pages, so I can integrate my pictures into a trip report, but that seems a bit ambitious for me right now.

I like www.dotphoto.com. The display options are good, the prints are inexpensive and good quality (they offer the matte finish I prefer, which not many other sites do), and the delivery time has been good.

One other valuable feature of dotphoto is that it lets you download your photos from the site to your computer.

The "Show" feature lets you create online slide shows and even lets you upload your own music as background for your show.

This is a simple one. Flickr. You can post photos with long explanations. You can publicize or make private any photos you want. It's free but for lots of storage space it's only $20 for a year. It has good editing features as well as a link (if you have a blog) to "blog this" and it creates a post with that photo. It's great.

If you want to check out Dotphoto, here are a couple of links to my photo albums from Spain:

I use Sony's ImageStation. I take, on average, 300 photos a month. I signed up for their platinum subscription ($50/yr) but it gives me a lot of free prints and DVD/CD archives.
