    Default Any good free/pay Photography hosting website?

    Hi guys

    Is there any good free or pay photography website?

    My requirements are quite simple:
    1) Able to have separate category with gallery
    2) Preferably have some slideshow ability
    3) Good connection speed
    4) Good amt of storage space since i wanna upload quite a bit
    5) Ease of use

    TIA

    P.S. I dont mind paying if it's really good.

    I like flickr, but what do you mean by #1? Like categorising your photographs?

    Some prefer pbase or smugmug
    Check them out!
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Picasa Web Album...free for a limited space (over 1 GB), if need more, small annual fee. Can categorize pics by albums...can upload a whole album at a time...can upload videos too. And yes, has slideshow ability. Probably not the best out there but easy to use. I use the free Picasa program to organize my photos...uploading my pics to the picasa web album is hassle free.

    i like flickr, and i think the functions are quite extensive. The only quirk is the speed... but not sure how it compares to the other providers though.

    Pbase is fast, good, and relatively cheap. easy to use, however, no slide show capability.

    understand that flickr has some limitations like only show latest 200 pics?

    Flickr FTW! Pay for a pro account, unltd storage. it's US$47 for 2 years. If u are a high volume user, i would reccommend it. I'm currently using it now. Uploading and organisation of ur pictures are really quick and easy. Very well established community as well. =D Speed is actually fine! I use juploadr to upload my pics. Drag and drop and hit upload. Voila!

    I use smugmug.. and it's really great.. not free, but I like the user interface and ease of use.. very intuitive for your friends/family to browse around... and there's unlimited storage, photos can be up to 8MB, and if u take the pro account u can have video too..

    and i can get u a $5 discount with this coupon code: gEnzsUWSnS3oo

    i tried fotki, flickr, photobucket.. and i think smugmug is still the best.

    i dont mind paying US$47 for 2 years if it's good and convienent to use. Perhaps you can link your site if possible? Or send me the link through PM to take a look?

    By upgrading to pro account, it will take care of the 200 pic quota right?

    Personally, I also use smugmug.com. I think it is very good site.

    The smugsmug.com meet all your 5 criterias and some more the storage is unlimited.

    I must admit that smugmug's gallery looks much better.. also has an option for selling pics (i doubt i ever will LOL).

    wow...

    personally using flickr pro as my gallery. very easy uploading. so far, no problems with the viewing even when i'm browsing during peak times.

    haha.. that's really for the pros to sell pics... can just use the standard or power accounts..

    power accounts have video, and the ability to use css to customise your entire site (except the content part)...

    standard accounts just allow unlimited photos, no video, and u can't customise.. but their pre-designed themes aren't too bad... i couldn't be bothered to go fiddle with the programming so i took the standard account...

    i like flickr for the strong photographic community.. but i find smugmug more for me, coz i share my photos alot with friends/family.. so i like my site to be user-friendly and organised for them..

    ya.. i think i might maintain 2... one for portfolio/critic (only the better shots), one for file-sharing (whole series).
