    Used it for years. Don't think I need to look at anything else. Very satisfied with it.

    Can batch upload on pbase, if you resize all your images to small sizes say 1200X700 at quality 7 on CS2 then upload to pbase and delete originals when upload is finished your left with tiny filesizes and great quality!

    or
    US$60 yearly for 1200 Megabytes of photo storage.


    Just for reference I have 2348 images on Pbase and its only taking up 167MB

    Id call it basically unlimited!

    So you only really need like 200-600MB really, so its cheap!

    Also, if you dont use all your 400MB then the it will last longer than a year, I paid for 900mb i think, last year, and i still have like 3 years left before I have to pay again because im only using 200mb!

    Thanks all for your comments... Have tried out pbase free account and I would say it is not very user friendly or is it just me.

    I have trouble uploading multiple files (need to zip up then can upload or else need to upload file by file) Don't they have something similar to flickr uploader?

    But nonetheless, I prefer pbase's gallery layout to flickrs.... hai.... dunno how man

    get own domain name & webspace gives u more control. u can choose from a few different gallery, and give yourself the identity... extra space can also do blog or u can even do a blog with a gallery... wordpress+gallery2

    Yup.. understand. Got some info and quote from a friendly guy... but in terms of customisation, is it more work? I am more towards gallery only and no blog or homepages...

    Also any sample own hosted web galleries to share anyone?

    flickr, pbase, multiply, smugsmug etc etc...all have a huge user community. If you like to share your photo this is a better option. They have user groups (flickr) also which you can be a member. If you want people around the world to comment to your pics this is the place for you because you will have higher chance people checking your pics on these galleries.

    Your own domain and your own space will offer you more flexibility but you gotta advertise
    or let other people know your ulr address so that more people will visit your site (unless you do not want to show your pics). If you always produce amazing pics...peepz will search for your gallery so no need to

    how come so many ppl recommend pbase and not smugmug ah?

    i've been trying flickr, fotopic and photobucket for some time... i think the appeal of flickr lies in the community aspect - many groups you can join and submit pix to etc. i like the way you can organise and customise fotopic, but get annoyed cos they seem to compress my pictures. and as for photobucket, i just feel it's better for storage and hotlinking than for showing off your gallery.

    hehe, i also have a clubsnap account, but that was more to give some cash back to the site, since i spend so much time here. haven't really explored the possibilities here.

    hey cool, you're using joomla! too.. i'm using that for my school project...

    how's the coppermine gallery? have you tried using porta+simpleviewer? i really like the professional presentation, plus the flash implementation prevents leeching. you can take a look here: www.antacid.os3.sg (the main page is just plain html)

    anyways, any lobang for getting webserver space? i'm looking around for you too. saw the asmallorange and hostdept from the other threads, but i'm just wondering if there are better (cheaper!) alternatives around.

    usd10 is a damn good deal...

    i'm thinking of putting gallery 2 instead, cos can upload mpgs, coppermine can't load mpgs. only flash animations. and i could link gallery 2 to my blog

    Hi antacid... liked how your photo galleries are presented. U suing porta+simpleviewer? Is it easy to manage and configure?
