What Photo Web Host do you use?
« on: January 25, 2013, 04:06:08 PM »
Wasn't sure which section to post this in but the question is, which online photo host do you use and why?  For instance, I use Zenfolio because I wanted to make sure our Boy Scout and Church Youth images didn't end up being used in anything we couldn't control.  I've been very happy with Zenfolio.

However, I've noticed that aside from SmugMug, there aren't a lot of options if one doesn't want to sign away rights to pictures they host.

Does anyone know if flckr preserves the original owners' rights?  I notice a lot of folks on this forum use flickr as well as the "official" White House photostream.
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

Absolutely !!!! There are many options available on Flickr allowing you to choose how you share your images. I use Flickr for my personal portfolio and have a seperate website for client work.

Um, the Instagram flare up caused Flickr to point it out heavily.

I use a few of them, smugmug for the clients and printing services, flicker for networking and fun, and 500 pix for networking and fun as well.  As far as I know, all of the aforementioned sites let you retain full rights to all of your uploads.  Of course I have my main website as well, for all of my business and galleries what not, but the others are great too, for their respective uses. Smugmug could definitely be an all-in-one solution, if you wanted to go that route, it's a really nice all-around site.
