    I am going to change from the likes of imagestation and ofoto to
    store my digital photos. I am seriously considering a subscription to
    www.smugmug.com
    Has anyone else used them ? How is the service?
    Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Please post reply here in the newsgroup.

    I've using it for 1 year. The features are good, but the UI navigation is
    so-so. Often I want to go somewhere and can't. I have to back track out of
    the current page, then go down another menu path.

    Is this to widely share photos for others to comment on the artistic
    quality? Is this for sharing vacation photos with your friends? Mostly
    web sharing or are prints very important? How much time do you want to
    spend organizing the site? What to recommend depends strongly on what
    you want to do.

    I hope to make it two fold. Primarily to share select photos I take
    out in the backcountry mountains & deserts of Nevada & Arizona.
    I also want to be able to get constructive criticism of my photos, and
    tips on how to improve the composition. Also how to improve the color
    rendition when cloudy skies do strange things to the natural colors of
    the sandstone formations (reds, purples, browns, tan, cream etc, etc).
    I doubt if I will be ordering many prints, just a few and probably
    8x10's when I do.
    I plan to do some reading (recommendations for books on techniques for
    photographing geological formations would be appreciated), and take a
    few night courses at the local university or community college on
    photography to help me out. I have no intentions of becoming a
    professional, as I already have a job that I am devoted to.
    I just want to be able to share the best photos I can with those that
    can't get to the wilderness areas I can hike into.
