    Paid! I can understand using the free versions if you are a beginner or don't really use it too much, but if one is serious in their work and wants to advance and improve and have somewhere decent to show there work off, why be tight and use the free version. I use both smugmug and flickr and the extra options ane pretty cool with the paid accounts.

    Paid for me as of a week ago

    Tried Picasa and the results when linking were unpredictable.

    Then Photobucket (free version), linking good, but over the top with share this, comment on that, and links to everything all over the place. And the advertising in your face I think detracts from the images.

    Now with Smugmug after this thread. Like it a lot, no advertising, great customisation, linking etc very easy but not overpowering.

    For me the price is worth it all the way!

    Free site for me (flickr) since Im a newbie to photography so cant justify paying for 'exposure' on a site that costs dollars.

    I use Photobucket and can't see any of this. Just my photos and some options for moving them around. No visible advertising at all on my browser.
