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. (Read the full review)

In summary, I would not recommend Fotki to a friend.

For 5 years, I have been paying Fotki.com $25/year to store my photos. About a year ago, they changed the storage policy because they moved their servers to Europe and required a new $30 fee for a certain about of original photo storage. They claim to have notified all customers, but I never received notification. Regardless, I didn't find out about this new fee arrangement until a year later. I then paid the $30 fee and ordered some prints I had originally uploaded about 5 years ago. Upon receiving approximately $50 of blurry and unusable prints, I complained and was told that only photos uploaded after payment of the $30 fee would be stored in "original" format. I asked what happened to all the original photos I had been storing on their site for $25/year for the last 5 years, and never received a response. I'd been paying them for this storage service, but now the originals are lost. I was told I would have to re-upload all the originals I had already uploaded in the last 5 years in order to print quality images. I demanded a refund of the useless $30 fee and the $50 of unusable prints,... (Read the full review)

They stopped unlimited storage unless you pay more

They stopped unlimited storage unless you pay more. I paid my yearly subscription and half way through the year they said they were no longer keeping the full size pic unless I paid extra. Min $30.00 . I have been a member there for 4 years. looks like I'll find another site to post pics so my friends can view the full size pic.

So if your looking for someplace to store a thumbnail for you its a nice site..

In summary, I would not recommend Fotki to a friend.
