digitalshooter: Unfortunately, this is not the total story. WHat is failed to be mentioned here is the fact that MANY of us have PREPAID and bought years of service, membership fees for "Gold Premium" accounts for FTP usage and FREE UNLIMITED storage.
We were not offered, good geture refunds, because as fotki will tell you, they dont have too!
Having already prepaid like many others, there are far too many FREE accounts that need to be addressed instead of going after the payers using the "unlimited" contracted amount of space.
I agree. The reason I've stuck with Fotki so long is that my pre-paid membership came with unlimited storage for a fixed fee. Changing the service level for a service I already paid for seems shady.
Excellent article. Brief, concise, and plenty of good examples to clearly illustrate the point. I think the example of the boy does a good job of showing how to make a rather boring photo a bit more interesting by just moving the subject out of the center (and not to the side that would make the picture even more boring! :-) )
