Hi Don,

Just a personal opinion here. I really dislike the Flickr user interface -
others may well disagree with me. I suspect that the reason I dislike Flickr
is because it is more of a social media site than a photo gallery site -
more for sharing photos than for displaying them. I use SmugMug for
displaying my photos (and Facebook for sharing them in a more "social media"
manner). Not that I'm trying to promote my SmugMug gallery here, but you can
take a look at to see what can be done with
SmugMug. Also, people like Geoff Jones (, Greg
Oakley ( and Dave Stowe
( use SmugMug - looking at these sites (beyond
just the amazing photographs) will give you a sense of the variability and
customisation available through SmugMug.

Note: SmugMug is quite capable of managing and displaying videos too.

All the best,

Paul Dodd
Docklands, Victoria

I was wondering if folks here could comment about whether they use flickr to
host their photos and if so the pros and cons of this specific site.  I
shoot all video so my screen grabs are only mediocre at best but they do
provide biological information on species that I think might be valuable.

Thanks for your imput!
