One of the Best
13 February 2015
Reviewer: Wayne Rasmussen from Maplewood, MN

I have used many of the photo sharing sites listed over the last 15 years and have settled on SMUGMUG as the best fit for my needs. Sharing thousands of travel and family photos is a major project and SMUG handles that task very well. Here are some of my reasons;

1) Look and feel of the site is very professional (3 levels of service)
2) Sharing pics with others is easy (Facebook or email)
3) Support is responsive and detailed - the best I've found
4) Maintaining pics in a tree-structure is convenient and quick (I have >30,000 currently)
5) Creating the 'look' of your site can be challenging, but it works
6) Tracking usage could be more user friendly or automated, but is workable
7) Additional levels of folders would be appreciated (7 is max)

If I could combine a few features from Flickr(fan support) and FOTKI(structure) with the reliability and look of SMUG I would have the ideal photo sharing site.

In summary, I would recommend SmugMug to a friend.

Best Hosting and Professional Proof Site Ever!
13 September 2012
Reviewer: Tjphoto from Denver, CO

I've been with SmugMug for over 6 years now and they are by far the best site I've ever found for hosting my photos. I use the Pro account for my business and in the last few years it has become the cleanest and most user friendly system around. My clients comment all the time about how incredibly easy it is to order pictures! And their partners for professional print labs are absolutely perfect. If you are signing up, remember to use a coupon code for $5 off: 7g9e01Kk2OUDM

In summary, I would recommend SmugMug to a friend.

Fantastic for Showcasing Your Photographs
14 July 2010
Reviewer: Peter Spalding from London, England

As a professional photographer I use Smugmug not just for my professional shots, but also for family shots. The website is beautifully crafted and is a great way to showcase you work to any prospective clients, as well as share happy-snaps with friends and family alike.

You can set permissions and passwords on different folder to keep family and work albums seperate, and pictures can be viewed (and sold or downloaded if you allow) in a number of different resolutions, which is great as you can set it to view the medium-res shots and sell the hi-res shots to your customers. You can create albums within albums too, so that you can create a hierarchy of photographs to mirror how you store them on your hard drive.

Also, being able to store an unlimited number of full hi-res images online is a great comfort, as it means I won't lose all my photographs should my hard drive break or should my house burn down!

In summary, I would recommend SmugMug to a friend.
