Photo backup and sharing solution
Jul 21, 2013

Was about to sign for Smugmug, but wanted to check if there is anything better for me. I have a lot of pictures (about 200GB so far) so my criteria are reliable backup, unlimited storage, fast upload and download speeds and it would be good to have user-friendly photo sharing abilities and absence of ads. Longevity of the site/service is also a factor. I am not a professional, do not sell photos and don't really think anyone would buy them anyway. I think Smugmug (did the trial) and Flickr are the top contenders here (I tried Zenfolio and it seemed less user friendly and overkill for me as an amateur), but would like some more opinions before I pull the trigger. I see this as a long term storage/backup solution, so would like to make the right choice right away.
