Had they done this six months ago, I probably wouldn't have a SmugMug account. Talk about either not knowing or misjudging your market!

Thanks anyway. I'd rather send my $99.99 to POTN, even if the limit is two images per post. It's well managed and it doesn't make me look at ads.

I got the same ad, ONCE! I exited, and later when I had time to look into the 'deal', it was no longer presented to me.
Pretty poor marketing. Lay bait, hide the bait. There seem to be some real morons in charge.


You need to give me OK to edit your image and repost! Keep POTN alive and well with member support http://photography-on-the.net/forum/donate.p​hp

So, as far as Flickr goes, it appears to be a rather widespread and
intermittent issue that EXIF doesn't transmit. There's much discussion
of this on their help forums, with no conclusive remedy yet to be found.
My test results have been varied, as have been many others, both free
and paid accounts. The most recent about this is from Jan 23, HERE (external link).

Just a heads-up/FYI for anyone interested.

Of course I'm all right! Why? What have you heard?!?
