The editor's review is quite out of date, or just plain wrong. You can upload 24 individual images at a time, not just one. There is a fee, but $23 a year for 1Gb of space is not bad and there are no ads from anyone. There are many options in display, such as color of background and printing, plus overall style sheets, so the galleries look very nice.
There are some very accomplished photographers on Pbase (alas, not including me; but have a look at the oldhiker gallery, anyway). If you look at the popular galleries you will see very impressive images, indeed. Many of these are by photographers attempting to sell prints, or with already established businesses.
You can search the image database by word or by camera. They keep track of your page views by gallery, individual image, and totals, which gives a nice feedback for an amateur photographer whose old slide projector used to elicit loud groans from visitors. Viwers can make comments if they choose. There is a friendly atmosphere; trolls seem to be absent from the Pbase community. And there are forums with contests, etc.
All in all, this is a very nice sharing... (Read the full review)
