hanks Jim. How would you compare PBase against Smugmug in terms of features?
I've never used Smugmug. They're a popular service, though.

Before pbase, I kept all of my photo albums at photopoint.com. But, they went "belly up" (out of business) around the first of 2002. I guess they should have used a different business model to insure a profit. :-)

I've never bothered to try and copy them somewhere else since then. I do have some older albums on another site that allows you to order prints (originally photoaccess.com , but they were bought by someone else). But, most of my photos are no longer online, except for a handful albums I've created on pbase since photopoint went out of business.

I've never cared much for the "bells, whistles and buzzers" (slide shows, music, etc.). So, I haven't paid much attention to how the sites compare in those areas.

Heck, the first thing I usually do if I hear music when visiting a web site is immediately exit, without even bothering to look at the photos, since I find it so irritating when it starts blaring through my speakers (especially if it's late at night and my wife has already gone to bed).

I'm getting better at keeping the speakers muted, just in case I hit a site with sound. But, I still forget to mute them from time to time.

SmugMug's mantras are ease of use and style. Easy for you to upload and arrange. Easy for your admirers to navigate and buy prints.

Upload 100s of photos with a few clicks. Bulk caption, bulk move, and bulk delete. If your captions are embedded in your photos as IPTC (International Press Telecommunications Council) data, we automatically use them.

I certainly agree with the ease of use comment about Smugmug. ..very easy to use and navigate. You get unlimited storage and can choose from 3 levels of membership. The different levels mostly allow you more customization over your site. Instant customization is available by using one of their many themes, or you can personalize your site with a slideshow, etc. What I found really helpful is that they will happily walk you through the customization if, like me, you stumble on the tutorials. You can check out my site if you like to get an idea:

You can take them for a test drive with the 14 day free trial.

Cheers,
