SmugMug for Photo Hosting

I have been using SmugMug for hosting my photos for a while now. There are a few benefits that make it worth the small annual subscription and don’t seem to be available from any of the free offerings:

  1. Your friends and family can download photos in full resolution
  2. Absolutely zero ads. Not having ads posted alongside your photos makes them look a LOT better.
  3. Unlimited storage and quick/easy bulk uploads
  4. A personalized URL
  5. Backups in 3 states.
  6. No need to login to view the photos (strangers really aren’t interested in your photos!)
  7. More professional look and feel. This is a website that is used by many pros.

I’ve used SmugMug for three years now and have been extremely happy with all aspects of the service. If you’d like to save $5 on a subscription, enter the following coupon in the ‘Referred by’ field:  LQvt6m1M08vGw

  1. Nice write up. I have been a loyal smugmug user myself for several years now. The ability to sell images has been great for me in the professional sideof my business. Their customer service and print quality is top notch. I would highly reccomend them for your photo hosting needs.
