Flickr, Picasa and SmugMug Shootout

Flickr, Picasa and SmugMug Shootout

The following twenty photo sharing sites are listed in order—somewhat. Ranking photo sharing sites will largely come down to personal opinion and the specific features you’re looking for. So while these sites are relatively ranked, they’re loosely ranked.

If you haven’t had a chance, be sure to read our comparison of the top three photo sharing sites here, Flickr, Picasa and SmugMug Shootout.

If you know of a site that should’ve been on this list, please let us know by leaving a comment below.

Flickr

Flickr

1. Flickr

Flickr, one of the most popular photo sharing sites on the web, is one of the most community oriented photo sharing sites available. If community is what you’re looking for, Flickr is the top choice. It’s essentially the Facebook of photo sharing sites.

Not only is Flickr’s community aspects fantastic, it also has some of the best features and most affordable pricing in comparison to most other options.

  • Price: Free / Pro: $25 per year
  • Storage: Free: 200 MB per month, Pro: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: 20MB
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png, .tiff
  • Video Uploads: Yes
  • Max Video Length: 90 seconds
  • HD Video: Yes
SmugMug

SmugMug

2. SmugMug

For professionals, it doesn’t get much better than SmugMug. Although more expensive than most other options, you’ll certainly get your money’s worth with the features and flexibility available. SmugMug also has somewhat of a community, but nothing to the degree of Flickr. SmugMug’s strong points are in it’s features for those more serious about photography.

  • Price: Standard: $39.95 / Power: $59.95 / Pro: $149.95
  • Storage: Ulimited
  • Max Image Size: Standard and Power: 12 MB, Pro: 24MB
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png
  • Video Uploads: Yes
  • Max Video Length: 10 minutes
  • HD Video: Yes
Picasa Web Albums

Picasa Web Albums

3. Picasa Web Albums

Picasa Web Albums, offered by Google, is a simple and clean way to store and share you photos with integration with other Google apps such as Gmail and Google Maps. You won’t get the flexibility of a site like SmugMug but the features offered will be plenty for most people.

Picasa uses Google Storage, which is shared among your Google based accounts—a nice feature. Google Storage is also very affordable with options scaling all the way up to 16TB!

  • Price: Free / $5+ per year (Google Storage)
  • Storage: Free: 1GB, Paid: 20GB+
  • Max Image Size: 20MB
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png, .bmp
  • Video Uploads: Yes
  • Max Video Length: 1GB Size, no length specified
  • HD Video: No
Phanfare

Phanfare

4. Phanfare

Phanfare is a popular site among many photography enthusiasts, boasting top notch features such as RAW support with up to 100MB image size uploads and HD video up to 20 minutes in length. With a free 14 day trial you’ll be able to get a feel for the site before committing to pay. Phanfare pricing is very competitive and while not the cheapest, it is certainly very affordable for the features and options available.

  • Price: Premium: $49.99 / Pro: $99.99
  • Storage: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: 20MB
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .psd, .tiff and RAW images
  • Video Uploads: Yes
  • Max Video Length: Premium: 10 min, Pro: 20 min
  • HD Video: Yes
Zenfolio

Zenfolio

5. Zenfolio

Another favorite among photography enthusiasts, Zenfolio offers great features for the price, including Google Analytics integration, support for all color spaces and great options for selling your photos. Unfortunately Zenfolio doesn’t offer video upload capabilities but it wouldn’t surprise me if it was added in the near future. Zenfolio is definitely a strong competitor for professional photographers.

  • Price: Basic: $25 / Unlimited: $50 / Premium: $100
  • Storage: Basic: 2GB + 1GB for every year, Unlimited and Premium: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: 24MB
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png, .tiff
  • Video Uploads: No
Divvyshot

Divvyshot

6. Divvyshot

Divvyshot is relatively new to the photo storage and sharing market but is definitely promising. They have a very sexy interface design going and a different approach to storage (5000 photos) at 30MB per image (larger than most other sites), which gives them a competitive edge. Not only that but it’s free! Paid accounts are planned to be launched soon, so this is definitely a site to check out.

Update: Divvyshot has been acquired by Facebook. http://divvyshot.com/facebook/

  • Price: Free
  • Storage: 5000 Photos
  • Max Image Size: 30MB
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png
  • Video Uploads: No

Photoshop.com

7. Photoshop.com

Photoshop.com isn’t just an online image editor, it’s also a photo library management app (Flash required) with a very good looking interface and feature set. As we all know, Adobe is no slouch when it comes to media—especially Photoshop. Photoshop.com shows Adobe’s expertise in this area and offers the features to make them one of the best.

  • Price: Free up to $499.99 anually
  • Storage: Free: 2GB, Paid up to 500GB
  • Max Image Size: 200MB (web) or 2GB (using AIR app)
  • Accepted File Types: Unlisted
  • Video Uploads: Yes
  • Max Video Length: Unlisted
Photobucket

Photobucket

8. Photobucket

Photobucket is a very popular choice for quick and easy photo sharing but definitely won’t be popular with those using DSLRs or other large image cameras. Even the Pro account is limited to 2MB photo sizes. Photobucket shines when it comes to fast sharing, printing photos and integration with other social media platforms like Facebook and MySpace.

  • Price: Free / Pro: $24.95 per year
  • Storage: Free: 500MB, Pro: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: Free: 1MB, Pro: 2MB
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png
  • Video Uploads: Yes
  • Max Video Length: 10 minutes
  • HD Video: Yes
Fotolog

Fotolog

9. Fotolog

Fotolog takes a different approach to photo sharing—logging your photos. You’re able to upload one photo per day as a sort of daily photo log. If you upgrade to Gold Camera membership you’re able to upload 10 photos per day. Although you’re very limited in the number of photos you can upload, that’s actually the point. You’re supposed to log one photo per day and get involved in the community. It’s actually a really creative photo sharing and networking idea.

  • Price: Free / $2.99 for 2 weeks
  • Storage: Free: 1 Photo upload per day, Gold Camera Member: 10 Photo uploads per day
  • Max Image Size: Unlisted
  • Accepted File Types: Unlisted
  • Video Uploads: No
Snapixel

Snapixel

10. Snapixel

Snapixel is a very minimalistic photo sharing and storage experience offering 5GB of free storage with no max image size. Half of Snapixel’s focus is making it easy to buy, sell and share photos to make money or find the perfect photo you’re looking for. They also support geo-tagging and mapping along with other fun photo integration features.

  • Price: Free / Pro: 9.95€ per year
  • Storage: Free: 5GB, Pro: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: No max
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg
  • Video Uploads: No
MobileMe Gallery

MobileMe Gallery

11. MobileMe Gallery

Apple’s MobileMe platform includes a photo and video gallery might just fit perfectly for those of you looking for deep Apple integration. Along with the gallery you’ll get many other services but the gallery itself offers a very nice interface, although it lacks flexibility and features offered by other sites more focused on photo sharing. It’s still a great option, especially for families.

  • Price: $99 per year
  • Storage: 20GB up to 40GB
  • Max Image Size: 6 megapixels
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png
  • Video Uploads: Yes
  • Max Video Length: Unknown
  • HD Video: 960×540 resolution
RedBubble

RedBubble

12. RedBubble

RedBubble is a site focused more on the artistic side of photography, design and art, providing people with a venue to share their art along with many different ways to print their art. They print t-shirts, cards, art prints and much more. Users are able to sell and share their work for others to print and enjoy as well. Community is a relatively large part of RedBubble and art is a focus here.

  • Price: Free
  • Storage: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: 60MB
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .png
  • Video Uploads: No
deviantART

deviantART

13. deviantART

deviantART is another site focused on community and sharing your art, whether photos or other digital creations. You’re likely familiar with deviantART as it’s one of the most popular digital media communities on the web. They also have integration with print shops and other gear like t-shirts, hats, bags and other great stuff.

  • Price: Free
  • Storage: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: Unknown
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png
  • Video Uploads: No
Zooomr

Zooomr

14. Zooomr

Zooomr isn’t currently accepting registrations due to a revamped release called Zooomr Zest, which is expected to launch sometime in early 2010. Zooomr is a great place to discover fantastic photography and community. I likely wouldn’t have included it in this list had it not been for the countless people that recommended it. We’ll be keeping an eye on Zooomr Zest and recommend that you do as well.

Pict

Pict

15. Pict

Pict doesn’t require registration to upload photos although registration is encouraged to get more account capabilities. Pict is a super simple photo sharing site enabling users to quickly and easily upload and share images into “cells”. If you’re looking for a basic photo sharing site that just works, Pict is a fantastic choice.

  • Price: Free / Pro: $4.99/m or $29.99 per year
  • Storage: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: 12MB
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png
  • Video Uploads: No
DropShots

DropShots

16. DropShots

DropShots is a relatively basic photo sharing and printing site that’s affordable but doesn’t quite offer the same level of features or capabilities as the big players. It’s still a great option with a nice interface that was very fast when I used it. The interface is unique in that you’re able to view photos by date side by side with threaded comments in another column. With video capabilities and affordable pricing, it’s definitely worth looking into.

  • Price: Free / Premium: $4.95/m
  • Storage: Free: 500 photos, Premium: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: Unknown
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg, .gif, .png
  • Video Uploads: Yes
  • Max Video Length: Free: 2 minutes, Premium: 10 minutes
  • HD Video: Yes
Fotki

Fotki

17. Fotki

Although the interface is rather off-putting in my opinion, Fotki was recommended by many people around the web. They offer very affordable photo printing options and competitive photo uploading and sharing options. One feature they offer than most other sites don’t is FTP access to photos, which may be a huge plus if you’re familiar with FTP.

  • Price: Free / Premium: $2/m
  • Storage: Unlimited (premium)
  • Max Image Size: Unlisted
  • Accepted File Types: Unlisted
  • Video Uploads: No
Shutterfly

Shutterfly

18. Shutterfly

Shutterfly is a very popular photo sharing and printing site offering free unlimited photo storage and sharing. Their main avenue of profit appears to be in the extensive printing options they offer from photo books and cards to stationary, prints and posters. If you’d like to get your photos printed on something or in a particular way, Shutterfly might be one of the best places to try first.

  • Price: Free
  • Storage: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: Unlimited, 10MB recommended
  • Accepted File Types: .jpg
  • Video Uploads: No
Snapfish

Snapfish

19. Snapfish

Snapfish, by HP, follows suite with Shutterfly, offering unlimited photo storage and sharing for free and focusing on the printing aspect. At Snapfish you’re able to print your photos on just about anything. There are literally hundreds (maybe thousands) of printing options to choose from, so if you want to get your photos printed, Snapfish is a site to check out.

23

23

20. 23

23 is a minimal photo sharing and storage site that has some maturing to do but is promising enough it should be mentioned. Although it’s capabilities aren’t at the same level as many other options here, it’s simple and easy to use. You’ll likely want to upgrade for $25 per year though as the free account is limited to 30 photo uploads per month.

  • Price: Free / $25 per year
  • Storage: Free: 30 photos per month, Premium: unlimited
  • Max Image Size: Unlisted
  • Accepted File Types: Unlisted
  • Video Uploads: No

  • http://supersite.me Simon

    Great! :) You can create your own, very personal storage, on your own server with Hipload.com script, so uploading files and sharing them with customers is more “professional”

  • Louise Temple

    I just signed up with http://www.mejuba.com. Unlimited storage for both videos and pictures and it’s completly free.
    No monthly limits or qoutas.
    Photos and videos are stored in their original formats and sizes and are kept unmodified for backup.
    I also like that you can geo-tag your stuff so it shows up on a map. And you can search for stuff on the map – that’s cool!.
    As the only site i know of it uses a Windows Explorer like navigation with folders – super easy to use – even has drag and drop!.
    I can highly recommend it.

  • Peter

    I had wasted lot of my time using Flickr, Picasa, and a few other sites. I say waste not because I had trouble using it (since I am a techie, and I like messing around with new features etc.) –but because after I uploaded the photos I had to call my not-too-tech-savvy family members and walk them through some tedious process. That frustrated both me and them!

    In my case, I scanned some old photos and wanted my dad and one of my aunt and uncle to comment on those photos; not to blog for the world to see, but for me (and our family) so that we keep bit of our family history.

    I recently landed on something called http://www.dreamyreflections.com and man…. I am spellbound. It had exactly what I wanted.

    In fact, it used to be that I take most of the photos I upload them too. Ideally my wife wanted help me by doing the selecting and uploading (I literally take 100s each month) so that my job is just to shoot. With http://www.dreamyreflections.com she is more than happy to do the selection/upload/organizing part. Actually, in her own words, “organizing is so intuitive in this thing that I don’t have to think much”. Also, when in doubt, she “hides” photos that are not great, and later we sit together and “unhide” it after doing some minor photoshop adjustments.

    Also, some of my friends are okay to signup to see the photos, but most of my non-tech-savvy users that I send to just wanted a link and click on it, add annotation and be done with it. This (like most sites) offered me both.

    I have a feeling, dreamyreflections.com is what you may be looking for.

    Oh one another thing, I was able to do side-by-side shooting condition comparison of all the photos in a given set (they call it film-roll). This helps me understand how to use my camera better –and which setting is the best for a given situation, etc. Actually, I learned a lot about how to make the best use of my 5D using this site!.

    Best of luck… let me know if you (or anyone) finds something even better than this. I would like to give it a try.

    • Sam

      I can’t agree with Peter more on his comments about http://www.dreamyreflections.com

      I had exactly the same problems getting some (I should rather say most) of the people I shared with. When I happen to talk to them, they would say, in essence “it was too much work”. In fact, I ended up printing and mailing them the prints using USPS!.

      At last this feature called “get-link” at dreamyreflections.com came to my rescue. I know most sites offer it too. But to me, other features (that makes my life easy in addition to my share recipients as well) is what made me finally stick to one site.

    • Mohammed Anzil

      I think you are a wrong.What you know about Flickr?

      • Keith

        Don’t know what you imply by “what you know about Flickr”.
        I have used it –stuck by its size limitation, and asking for $$$$.

        Hey, if you are rich and like donating money to Yahoo!’s Flickr -by all means go ahead.

        I, on the other hand, am not that rich and prefer dreamyreflections.com which does not cost a dime and even better offers excellent display features and in-depth photo analysis.

  • http://www.theeasyview.com Rachel

    Another fairly new free photo sharing site is http://www.theeasyview.com You get 2GB of free storage and can upload photos up to 8MB. It is very easy to upload and share photos. You can also add a security password to your album links.

  • robert northman

    I have been using http://www.bluemelon.com for quite some time and I really like the service, I wonder if you did not like it, or just did not know about it.

    I think it is much better than flickr or picasa which I have both used in the past.

    • Mohammed Anzil

      You are wrong.Nothing is better than Flickr

    • rick

      I’ve bounced around alot between a few of them…. and if anything….. BlueMelon’s help has been the best

  • http://www.photodekho.com Nisha Shah

    It’s a good list. I think PhotoDekho might be a good addition to it.

  • http://pixi.me/whyus.php steve caturan

    if you want to try something different from the services mentioned on this article, have a look at http://pixi.me/whyus.php – we use Gallery, the open source web based photo album organizer. Have a secondary backup location for all your photos or just have more control/privacy with them using the Gallery. If you have web hosting somewhere, take a peek at your control panel – you’ll mostly likely see a 1-click installer for it.

    Another great photo sharing site is swapMYpix

    Three reasons why http://www.swapmypix.com is an awesome photo sharing site:

    - Real photo “sharing” as it not only allows people to view your photos but also lets people DOWNLOAD photos for themselves.

    - Ability to post photos on social networks so people can view and download your photos

    - Super easy to use with no membership requirements, software downloads, or accounts to manage

    All of this is provided free of charge…awesome!!!

  • http://chrisheath.us Chris Heath

    imageshack.us is great – i can’t believe you don’t think it deserved to be on this top 20 list!

    i’ve been using it for a long time and it’s just so simple i find it best used for fleeting image hosting needs

    i don’t use it for organizing ‘my pictures’ (others on your list are really good at that)
    i use it for hosting pictures that i don’t want in ‘my pictures’ – and there’s lots of those!

    and the best part is that you don’t even need to sign up to use it… just use it!

    AND their upload tool is dead simple, fast and cross-platform!

  • Victor Levy

    I too think Mejuba is the worlds best!
    Unlimited storage for both videos and pictures and
    it’s completly free. No monthly limits or quotas. You can upload a whooping 1GB PER upload!
    Photos and videos are stored in their original formats and sizes and are kept unmodified for backup.
    I also like that you can geo-tag your stuff so it shows up on a map. And you can search for stuff on
    the map – that’s cool!. Even Google Street View is now implemented – eat that Flickr and Photobucket!!! Already geotagged photos are automatically mapped when uploading.
    As the only site i know of it uses a Windows Explorer like navigation with folders – super easy to
    use – even has drag and drop!.
    It’s free, fast, nice design as SO much better than Flickr and Photobucket.

  • Alin

    The best for storage is http://www.4shared.com, good upload, good download, 10 GB free.

    I thought Photobucket was rated kinda low compared to a few of the other options above when it comes to pricing per year and storage limit (which they have recently change as of June 2011, making you to be able to store even more photos)

  • Laura Nielsen

    I simply love Mejuba the best. From what I know Mejuba (mejuba.com) is THE only site that offers free and unrestricted uploads of videos and pictures without ANY restrictions on file size, video length or monthly traffic. And uploads your originals. No monthly limits or quotas. You can upload 1GB per upload. Pictures and videos are stored in their original formats and are kept unmodified for backup. I also like that you can geo-tag your stuff so it shows up on a map. And you can search for stuff on the map – that’s cool! Even Google Street View is now implemented – eat that Youtube, Vimeo etc!!! As the only site I know of it uses a Windows Explorer like navigation with folders – super easy to use – even has drag and drop! It’s free, fast, nice design as SO much better than the other video sites. Still missing a few features – but I am sure they will be added later.

    Does anyone else have a dreamyreflections.com account? I put a boatload of photos there about 8 months ago and I haven’t been able to load the site for a couple weeks now. I’m beginning to think that it was a fraudulent site. It was free and offered unlimited storage, but it is still an annoying situation. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

And I don’t want to have to pay a service fee in order to make the pictures available to everyone else. Looking for best site

  • Grover

    I have tried several sites and my biggest concern was being ripped off by other users of my photos. I tried a site called imgsrc.ru and have been pleased with them. totally free, unlimited, and secure. If you want privacy, just lock your albums with a password, if not, allow open viewing. Found it vey simple to use. has allfeatures of more expensive sites. It’s a very good site for the average joe as well as pros. take a look. you might like it.

    Another great one is http://photorankr.com. You can sell photos for free, and buying photos is really easy since you just download them straight from the site, no hassle. You also get to maintain your own copyright. No limits to the storage size or anything either. I think where it kind of beats the others is it is also a social network. You can follow other photographers and everyone has their own “Photostream” to view what is going on around the site.

    original size files unless you pay an additional fee. I have about 100 GB stored there. It would cost me an additional $60 per year in addition to the membership fee, I am looking around for a better solution. Also, you can no longer download the original files that you uploaded. What a rip-off!!!

    Hello -
    I am wondering if y’all can help me out. I am looking for a free image hosting service and I would like to avoid trying every site to find out if it has all the stuff I need. I need a site that has a bulk uploader, unlimited bandwidth and photos, watermarking if possible, multiple-item tagging, easy url sharing w/ alt tags and title.
    If you use a site that has all of these features, I would love to know about it. Thanks!

    Flickr’s free account stores full resolution photos but doesn’t make them accessible. To get at them, you have to pay. A big limitation.

    If you want a good photo community then try http://www.ephotozine.com – allows critique of photos and sharing on sites like facebook and twitter. It’s regularly updated with new features as well.

    These sites have great features but are all too busy. I use http://inmyphotofolder.com – It’s free and simple. No limit to number of Photos or Folders. Their PhotoSync application takes care of uploading pictures and folders and it keeps your online Photos in Sync with your Photo collection on your computer. Add new folders, pictures, resize some, delete some, rotate others and the photosync sorts out what needs to be uploaded. The PhotoSync app works on PC and MAC. Add a list of friends e-mail addresses to your account and when you Sync up your photo collection – they will get an e-mail with list of your new Photo Folders.

    There are many good image hosting sites, I prefer http://roomybox.com/, as you can easily upload a whole bunch of images at once, and it has some cool social sharing functions as well.

    I host my photography business on Zenfolio, and they recently added video uploading/hosting capability. I have built-in slideshows, almost complete customization, and full control of the process from uploading and organization to privacy/client access and sales.

    I built http://osenia.com after looking for a simple way to privately share my photos with my family and not being able to find one.
    Upload photos, share to an email address. The person you share with get full resolution photos and a slideshow.

    Which site works best for DOWNLOADING a whole album at once like you can do in picasa? I share many photos with friends and they download whole albums rather than single images form my postings. I also need flexible privacy/public settings. I like picasa but don’t like the storage limit. I need much more and would prefer a free site.

    Gallerized – http://www.gallerized.com – is another site to consider. It is aimed at image management for businesses, images are easily uploaded and cataloged by the administrator and images can be downloaded in bulk at a variety of sizes (including the original size) when sharing the gallery with others.
