Online Storage: Flickr vs Picasa vs Shutterfly vs Hosting vs Other

I've just started using Picasa to organize my photos on a local external drive but now I'm thinking I might want to store them all on the web to access from anywhere.

Any opinions on the different popular applications? (Flickr, Picasa, etc)

My criteria is as follows:

  • Need to be able to hide/share galleries images. I don't want everything public nor everything private.

  • I've got nearly 100GB of photos to store

  • I'm already using Mozy for backup, but want to be able to access and or view all my hi-res images (Jpeg) from anywhere.

  • iPhone app a plus

  • Cost is a concern. I like Picasa pricing but not Drop Box.

  • I have a personal web hosting account but I think I lose more features than I get in flexibility, etc.

I've already searched the forums but wasn't really satisfied with what I found. Apologies if I missed a previous post that nails this question.
