Do I find it perfect? No. But neither do I find it unbearably awful. It's a Tb for free. The users are friendly, and I get far more response from my photos there than I have anywhere else. Awfully hard to turn down in my opinion.

Let's see:

Good side:

  1. 1 TB (capital B for Byte, lower case for bit) free
  2. Ummm....go back and see number 1

Bad side:

  1. Horribly hard to navigate
  2. Horribly hard to find specific image sizes, sometimes impossible
  3. Kind of hard to find EXIF data
  4. Have to do 2 and 3 for every single photo (selections not sticky)
  5. Once you do 4, you have to go back to 1 (and 2 and 3) - every time
  6. Incredibly, unbearably slow
  7. Lots of "response" to your photos

It has such potential, if they'd just change practically everything.

I've considered using it for a private backup system, except that I don't need it and I'm not sure if you can make your entire folder/gallery/stream (whatever they call it) private.  Can you?
