    I'm using flickr pro.

    Its convenient and fast, I feel. I like the interface too. Quite user friendly. Easy to grab the links to the photos as well.

    The only drawback is that I cannot arrange the photos in the photostream unless I manipulate the dates on the photos.
    However, this can be remedied when you organize your photos into sets.
    Its kinda expensive too, on hindsight. Haha.. But ok la.. Since I had already uploaded and placed links to many photos n Flickr, I decided to upgrade to Flickr pro. 24 + per year I think.

    i got a 1 TB HDD which I back my photos into. worryingly it is filling up rather quickly. I wonder if i should not include so many photos of cats.

    There's definitely ways to get more for free. I am currently at 84.22GB of free space and only used 4 of my referrals.

    Dropbox runs promotions once in a while for free storage. There's the yearly dropquest and betas for new features which all increases your storage if you participate.

    This is what I use:
    D-Link UK | DNS-320 ShareCenter

    How much storage space you have is based on how much space your HDD have and how you configure it. You can load in 2x 3TB and get total of 6TB or do a RAID1 to have a duplicated 3TB. i.e. you only have 3TB space but your files are saved to both HDD.

    It can also be configured to access through a web browser anywhere. The only limitation you have is your internet connection speed at home.

    You will have to go through the flickr Organizr, and click sort by dates uploaded / dates taken. then create your defined photo sets from there.

    Flickr pro is one of the cheapest abt $25/yr, but smugmug looks much better with its dark/ customisable skins but $60/yr..

    For yrs, people have been asking Flickr for dark background to display photos, but has been largely ignored, still WHITE..

    If you are referring to automatic synchronizing photos off ur phone or desktop folder somewhat like dropbox , there are some 3rd party apps like photosync. But I have not tried them before.
