I recently came back from a trip to brazil, and wanted to post up my pics to share with my trip mates.... i decided to sign up for a free trial of phanfare for the time being. i havent seen (m)any posts about it on FM, but have heard good things from a friend of mine.... they have a tiered plan structure, and for $99/yr i get unlimited capacity for photos, with archival service so i dont need to worry about losing my pics in case my HD bites it.
alternatively, i looked at picasa.... i havent looked into its features in depth, but i did look at pricing... i can get 20GB for $20/yr. since all of my pics combined do not come close to 20GB (and dont expect to for some time), this would be sufficient.
has anyone actually compared both services? is phanfare worth the extra $$ per year for archival storage? my macbook is backed up onto a 1TB local time machine drive, and i have a separate external HD that i can use to back up my files. thoughts?
