photo-sharing-pollTime for another MakeUseOf Poll. So far every poll we had was a huge success. tons of votes and comments. Thanks!

Now back to today’s poll. The poll question for today is what photo sharing website do you use?

Are you a Flickr fan? Google Picasa user? Or do use something less popular like recently mentioned Photie (which unlike the popular services offers unlimited stoage space). Tell us about it.

Please vote!

    I actually use a combination of Picasa, Photobucket, and Flickr. Picasa is strictly for my digital camera photos since i use the desktop software to manage them. Photobucket is what i mostly use to post things in various places on the internet like forums, blogs, etc, where I want to post the actual picture, not a link to the picture. Flickr is mostly for sharing screenshots in one of the games I play in but it's bandwidth limitations for free users makes it rather unappealing to me.

    Photrade is the only way to go IMO.
    Share, protect, get paid....can't beat that!

    I'd use Flickr more often, but I've learned friends and family are more likely to see my photos when I upload to Facebook or Mysapce.

    My wife is is loyal to KodakGallery for some reason.

    I use which is a paid site, but about $25 per year with no advertising. It also allows comments and you can upload full-size images and brows that way too. For me, flickr was too much about flickr and not enough about you, the user/photographer. The photography on pbase is worldwide and is quite good. Take a look!

    I use KoffeePhoto. Unlimited photo sharing, photo enhancement functions, optional photo software including a background uploader, etc..

    While I do like Picasa to organize the photos on my desktop, I use for sharing.

    What about Facebook? The most efficient way to get through, is it not?

      That's the only photo-sharing I do right now. Maybe some day when I get around to getting my own domain and hosting and whatnot I'll setup some Python app to do my own gallery, but until then...meh, Facebook's good enough.

    I have been using Flickr right from the very beginning but in the past year or so I have scaled back on it and I am planning to start putting my photos on my website instead. I figured why pay Flickr $25 a year for their premium membership when I already pay Yahoo $12 a month for their unlimited web hosting? So I cancelled the Flickr membership and I will be making web photo albums when I have the time (ha! time! what's that?!!)

    I use photrade sometimes, when I do. Review on the service can be found here as well:

    I like most. It's for photos and videos, and has so much more features than youtube or flickr.
    Don't know, why this thing did not start off so well. I really can't believe it. It's the best, and no one cares...

    I've been using for the longest time and just recently found for posting my pictures online.

    I really like how simple is to use. Upload an unlimited number of images at once, instead of the normal way of selecting either 1 or 5 images to upload. When you create your gallery, you get your own subdomain to show your gallery (

    Oh, and it's totally free.

    KodakGallery (a modest cost plus one order a year) and it's my archive of photos. Being a belt and suspenders guy, I have them on Mozy, emailed to a gmail address, AND stored on CDs in a relative's house in another state.

    September 14, 2008 at 11:55 pm all the way.

    It's the only one I've discovered that can basically host unlimited pics and videos (your allotment goes up every month, so you'll probably never run out of space) and they're never deleted even if they haven't been downloaded or viewed in a while.

    There's so much competition between all the photo sites. It's almost as bad as with the social networking sites - and they often have links to one of the photo sites, too. I use Flickr and there's no way I want to start with another site. There's more on Flickr than I have time to enjoy.

    I guess it's good to have competition, but I wish there was a central way to tie them all together. FriendFeed comes closest so far, so I'm hoping it expands.

    I upload via SCP to my own server.

    I actually made a batch script to do just that via drag and drop. It even copies the URL to the clipboard.

    I am a log time Photobucket user but now would like to switch to Flickr. I need an advice... What is the fastest way to move photos from Photobucke to Flickr?

    • Aibek
      September 14, 2008 at 8:15 pm

      If I remember correctly there was a web app that could take your photos from one photo sharing site and move them to another. I'll the check my bookmarks and let you know, sty tuned.

    so far I just upload my pictures at , it's easy and I can share them with my friends. They also have contests which is pretty cool (they even gave away an iPod!).

    I also use facebook, so far it's the only site I've used

    Flickr all the way! Still thee Shining Light of the Web2.0 Universe!!

    The Key is the People + the Comments + discovering Amazing Photography
    + People from all over the World.

    I have to give Props to ipernity which a lot of disgruntled Flickr users switched too
    as a result of Flickr Censorship issues in Germany + other spots in Europe +
    the Middle East + Asia - of course originating from good ol' Politcally Correct
    NeoConservative Bush + Brainwashed Flock America. The key to ipernity is it has
    the same identical look + feel + Ease of Use of Flickr.

    1 more thing the 3rd Party Apps + Hacks + Mashups for Flickr are Amazing!!

    ;)) Peace*
