    great list but I am surprised to see flickr not holding the first position. Flickr in all ways is the undisputed leader in photo sharing…

      There are great limitations for Flickr free account. No use!

  2. Will Jennings January 26, 2011 at 10:16 PM #

    http://www.photoswarm.com is another good one.

  5. Portfolio website February 10, 2011 at 7:02 PM #

    Great portfolios presented,but one is missing that is mine:
    Photographer website

    I think Mejuba is the worlds best!
    Unlimited storage for both videos and pictures and
    it’s completly free. No monthly limits or quotas. You can upload a whooping 1GB PER upload!
    Photos and videos are stored in their original formats and sizes and are kept unmodified for backup.
    I also like that you can geo-tag your stuff so it shows up on a map. And you can search for stuff on
    the map – that’s cool!. Even Google Street View is now implemented – eat that Flickr and Photobucket!!! Already geotagged photos are automatically mapped when uploading.
    As the only site i know of it uses a Windows Explorer like navigation with folders – super easy to
    use – even has drag and drop!.
    It’s free, fast, nice design as SO much better than Flickr and Photobucket.

      Currently use Smugmug, and I’m happy with it, but looking for something less expensive since all I really need is a decent looking site I can upload photo’s into galleries for clients to preview. Being able to password protect a gallery would be great, but not a necessity. I do not want persons to be able to download pictures from the site without my permission and I do not need to be able to sell prints or downloads from the site. Any ideas? Will Mejuba do this or anyone else have any ideas?
      Hoping someone knows something to help without me having to read through each and every site. Thank you!

    Hello there, just became alert to your blog through Google, and found that it’s really informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels. I’ll appreciate if you continue this in future. A lot of people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

    very interested file

  9. ronnie morales August 3, 2011 at 6:14 PM #

    Lens.ph is very recommended!

  10. Jesse October 18, 2011 at 8:50 PM #

    I really don’t like the line up.. DotPhoto, Picasa and Fotolog have way more limitations than Flickr and the interface is off-putting in my opinion. I recommend Fotoblur.com! the interface is beautiful and it is simple and straight to the point. I really think that people don’t really understand the meaning of photo sharing. People need to understand it is to receive feedback and communicate with other photographers. The most you’ll get from DotPhoto is crappy family pictures and “wow cool!” Feedback..

    Nice list. All the most popular apps are listed. Although I have used http://www.fruzer.com, a new kinda unlimited storage sharing site. Recommended for all.

  12. matt6matt April 22, 2012 at 10:18 PM #

    I use http://inmyphotofolder.com – Its very simple and free – and the upload has a ‘smart sync’ – which eliminates the hassle maintaining an online collection of pictures.
