Default Great new Photo Hosting site, 50Mb 12 months free!

Hi all.
I wanted you all to know about a great new Photo Hosting site:
www.PhotoShare.co.nz
Easy to use (a wizard to help first timers),
password protection,
lots of display options,
no adds,
and best of all you get 50Mb of on line storage space free for the first 12 months.
After that it's just $6 per 50Mb per year, so well under the price of other photo hosting sites.
Please check it out, I welcome feedback, ideas, etc.

Graeme

GraemeF...Thanks, went there. No auto sign up, you send them an email. 80 members so far. Need somewhere to host test pics for forums like this, so could be handy. Couldn't get through the first screen with personal info blocked on firewall.

Update: Doesn't seem very ZoneAlarm friendly, at least not on my pc. This site OK. VOX

I'll hang on, looks a bit dodgy. Funny way of joining.

Default It's for real!

I thought I had replied to this, but 30 mins later I still can't see it, so apologies if it appears twice...

I'm sorry you think It's dodgy Steve, It's really not.

I'm a professional programmer, and a keen amateur photographer.
I've hosted my pictures on my own website for a couple of years (www.windsong.co.nz), and I've used other photo sharing sites.
Back in April 2002 I decided to create a "Next Generation" Photo Sharing site.
It took me until 1st Dec 2002 to get it on line, most of that time was spent reading technical books and learning new things (I had to learn 9 new languages!).

I really pleased with the site now, it has many features not found on other Photo Sharing sites, and the features it lacks will be added shortly (I'm still working hard).

The sign-up system is a manual one at the moment.
I'll get it automated at some stage, but while the site is small enough, I'd prefer to meet the people who want to join, and have them meet me.
Don't worry, I won't spam you, and I won't pass your email address on to anyone.

PhotoShare is a hobby for me -but one I'm pretty serious about.
The $6 per year fee will cover my costs, which is all I'm concerned about - I'm not doing this to make a profit.

If you have any questions, if there is anything I can help you with, then please email me at [email protected]

Alternatively, I've spent a lot of time on the Sony Talk Forum on www.DPReview.com.
If you still have concerns, then please post a message there, asking what folks think of www.PhotoShare.co.nz.

OK, you've convinced me, I'll give it a go.
