Overall Star Rating:
I was a pro user for several years while they were base in North America, but when they switched to Europe they didn't just go downhill, they plummeted. Based in Latvia/Estonia or thereabouts, they became very East European orientated dominated by Russians.
There were frequent problems with large numbers of images being offline and frequent service outages. Customer service was non existent and they also changed to a very weird charging system for pro users.
My biggest problem with the was their arbitrary censoring which was unbelievably stupid at times. I had some very tame elegant vintage pin-ups that showed a bit of mild topless in some images, but nothing extreme or offensive and they classed it as porn - oh the Russian vulgar topless images were not censored.
Their print service was probably the worst I have ever encountered, even my local supermarket did a much, much better job. They blamed the quality of my images, but I got no response from them when I sent them the prints from the supermarket, not even my money back - LEFT and went to PBase and get my printing done in the UK by Photobox.
Steer clear and give PBase a go.
In summary, I would not recommend Fotki to a friend.
