i guess they decided to drop the compulsory Yahoo account just to use Flickr. i couldn't even log in for a month
Is it? Think I'm still using my old yahoo account (from eons ago) to access it, have not noticed any change with regards to log in.

Strange, I didn't experience the downtime for the past many months. Only a couple of website display glitches when they 'upgrade' their displays.

FYI, Multiply was shut down. Vaguely recall it. It was a social networking site (similar to facebook).

Old news from 2009 might give you an idea of the kind of features it had back then: http://techcrunch.com/2009/05/26/multiply-40-social-network-photo-sharing-done-right/

Old users still can log in with their old accounts. Just that new accounts have to register with yahoo... But flickr have been left to rot under Yahoo ownership for a few years now, only recently in the past year they suddenly realize they are no longer competitive and started making changes... a little late actually. the flickr community have mostly moved on.

So mostly switch to 500px?

I find that Photobucket resolution is not as good as Flickr.

Btw, any website that can also let other people view the photos only with invitation but not open to all?
I know flickr can do that via privacy settings (each photo has its own privacy setting)

Most sites will have some privacy options, with varying degrees of control/permissions to achieve what you're looking for.

E.g. With facebook and google+, you can choose to share images right down to specific people, or have private links to non-public albums. With 500px, it's either private or public. Photobucket is one of the free services I'm aware of that has password-protected albums, there may be others I don't know about. With Flickr, you can generate a guest pass to share private images/albums with specific people: https://www.flickr.com/help/sharing/#2184

The default page is the photostream. There's a toolbar there, with a link to Albums.

If you want them to see albums then you should provide the link to the albums page. It should end with /sets/.

E.g. https://www.flickr.com/photos/(YOUR FLICKR USERNAME)/sets
