Conclusion SmugMug is one of the most matured and polished online solutions for photographers. Your imagination is the only limitation here.
The age old adage of if you are not paying for the product, you are the product is becoming clearer and clearer, even to the point of Mark Zuckerberg having to head on up to Capitol Hill and try to explain how all this social media stuff works to Senators and Congress.
Sure, Flickr had a free account, but at least as it was initially designed, the free account which limited you to only seeing your last photos was really more of a trial for the real thing, Flickr Pro, for which you paid a subscription.
Small organizations, by contrast, can move much more quickly. In my case, I use the Portfolio Plan. Any feedback you have provided that others have supported will be attributed to "Anonymous". I use only two types of layouts; one is for the home page where I display portfolio photos at full screen size with endless scroll, the other layout is the library view where you can see thumbnails of the portfolio images.
It took all of two to three minutes.
These are people who are passionate about photography, not advertising. It also features a design editor that allows you to create a custom design or a custom theme.
These companies offer you free content and use your personal data to advertise at you. I know people and am friends with people who work at both SmugMug and Flickr. At the same time it is hard to get people to pay for things on the internet so this in some ways limited their user growth compared to Flickr and other services offering a free option.
On top of everything, it saves me an enormous amount of time on image resizing. Galleries I use Galleries in SmugMug a lot. Beautiful responsive design for your portfolio Unlimited image storage.
When using SmugMug, photographers retain all the rights and ownership of their photos. This has served them well and has kept them profitable. I only use SmugMug for my professional activities.

These services cover an entire range of activities from photo editing, web hosting, web design and backup to marketing, online sales and accounting. What you will find is wall after wall covered with the biggest prints you have ever seen in your life.
You can sell prints or digital downloads. Today, I want to offer an in-depth outline on how the SmugMug photography platform fits into my WordPress powered website and how it benefits my photography business. Some photographers mistakenly treat SmugMug as another photo sharing service, which is far from reality.
You can opt-out at any time. As a travel photographer and blogger, I adapted and integrated only selective features of SmugMug that are important to my specific needs pertaining to travel and blogging. You can find multiple similar services around but nobody can compete with SmugMug.
Online Sales This is probably the most advanced module of the SmugMug platform. Since Flickr is one of the few sites on the web that allows moderated adult content, I did wonder how SmugMug would treat that — at least per the current TOS it looks like that is going to be handled as it always has been at Flickr.
My Portfolio is based on a SmugMug default design. It is tailored mostly toward wedding and event photographers. Big organizations like Yahoo and Verizon have layers of bureaucracy that sometimes make things difficult to get done. It allows you to create public or password protected storefronts and separately control the pricing for each project or client.
I will happily continue paying for it indefinitely assuming Flickr continues grandfathering my unlimited storage Pro account. This is where the SmugMug Lightroom plugin comes in play. One of the things that I always liked about Flickr was that advertising was largely secondary to paid subscription accounts.
I do not agree to the storage of my personal information, and I wish to delete my feedback profile and all personal data from this site.NTA Photography "Capturing Your Precious Moments Since " Graduations; Graduations Read writing about Success Story in SmugMug.
