Wired says that Flickr is "a hit with bloggers."
Andy Baio, author of the technology-oriented blog, Waxy.org,
acknowledges that Flickr is not the only service that allows
photographers to share their pictures with others. But he thinks that
unlike most other photo posting sites, Flickr makes sharing pictures
and participating in groups seamless.
The gallery view is better than most of the photo hosting sites I have tried so far. It is where I have uploaded a number of my photos, but I am not yet convinced I need to spend $60 a year ($41.77 if you sign up early) yet for all its features. PBase charges $23. An interesting alternative to consider is Photo.net, a photo enthusiast site hosted by Philip Greenspun, where professionals and aficionados alike congregate to critique each other’s photos. "Heavy" users of the site pay $25 per year.
