Well, it's decision making time. There's no way I'm paying $400 dollars a year for a hosting site that wasn't worth $40, even at their best which was about 8-10 years ago. I've been a member here at POTN for over 10 years and have built a gallery here from images I consider to be my best. The thought of all those images vanishing in less than 30 days has me trying to figure out my best options. I went though the posts on this thread and have done some investigating into the options suggested. Thanks to all of you for your input, it's been very helpful. After selecting a new hosting location I'd like to repopulate my gallery to its current content but my gallery has nearly 200 images and that means a lot of manual work to get them linked in their original threads again. I'm especially proud of my "Best Of" selections over the years so I'm not sure if they'll vanish but that's the least of my concerns right now.
I'm considering but not completely sold on:
I like being able to sell my work at the hosting location, I'm a long time hobbyist but it would be nice to start making a little supplemental income with my thousands of images. I do like the pro look that Zenfolio offers. I want an easy copy and past link method for sharing here, as well as making repopulating my gallery at POTN as easy as possible. Any final hour suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all.
