I've had a Flickr account for a while now and once again my 2 year subscription is up. Another 2 years will cost me around 28 quid but I'm wondering if anyone uses anything else.
I don't do social networking [ and won't ] so the options on there are out of the question so my query is this - does anyone else use another service which offers what flickr does and if so - what is it ?
I'm just wanting to keep my options open.

Google Picasa Web is somewhat similar, but you get a gig free then its pay through the nose for more space.
I think Flickr is the best at what it does though.

Or... you could get a Mac and use the upload feature in iPhoto...

I've got some 3500 images on mine now so would not want to transfer them all over again, plus I can see how many views etc I have and I don't think any of the others have that facility.

I am currently with Flickr too, but may switch to 500px if it becomes a credible alternative in the future (and I learn to take better photos ).

500px sounds good, if only I could actually upload photos to it... that would be, well, nice really...
Flickr is frankly great, I have a pro account and let's be honest, if you are srs about photography then £12 a year or whatever it works out to is absolutely nothing... without trying to sound big that's less than 0.5% of the price of my camera stuff, and even for a more sane person it's a tiny tiny price to pay compared to what any of us would throw away in a camera shop and for that price you get the ability to sell images directly, for thousands upon thousands of people to see them (if you're good, unlike me ) and if you are a little socialite then you can be social too!
I am interested by 500px though I have to admit, so I will send them an email to get them to sort their upload out so I can give it a try, cheers for the heads up on that one.
PS google Picasa severely compresses and restricts the size of your images so it's really not worth it, flickr doesnt.

There's also smugmug for $40/year. A few of the amateur photographers I know are using it and like it.
It does offer "right-click disable" as a "feature" on the blurb, however, which makes me think they're clueless.

500px doesn't have as many apps as there are for Flickr, but you only need one.

A pointless "feature" since anyone with clue can easily bypass it.

Still Flickr for me i'm afraid, just the best, most photo-focused site.

I think I will be staying with Flickr by the looks of things.
