So I like sharing photo’s with friends and family, and there are plenty of services out there. I’ve been using a pro account on flickr for more than a year now, but lately decided not to upgrade to pro since I never used the extra services. And now I am using Smumug it looks good, and you can customize more than you could with flickr.
Another thing to consider is the fact that you should upload your best pictures to a third, party sort of like a backup. So my favorites and best pics are not just on External Hard drive, but also on smugmug, and flickr. Sort of an insurance.
