Have any of you tried this site? I think after I have the baby, it’ll be a must.
For $60 a year, they have right-click protection, which helps prevent photo theft. Unlimited HD video storage. You can store full-size jpgs & gifs that only you can view - so you have a backup, should anything happen to the files you have on your computer or external hard drive. You can make prints directly from the site. There’s the ability to password protect photo galleries. Also the option to make certain galleries private.. So your friends & family can view it without a password or account, but only if you give them the link. And you can share the photos on your twitter or facebook.
I absolutely don’t want to publicly share photos of the baby. I don’t want people being able to download them & reupload them. (Like those stupid “plentyofbabies” “onlybabies” & “baby-pics” tumblrs do). I don’t want people I don’t even talk to being able to view them. And I’d rather my husband not upload them to his FB for friends & family to see, because that site always compresses photos & destroys the quality of them. Everything uploaded on there looks awful, even if you use the “high quality” uploading option. It makes me sick.
I think this would be a good option for us sharing baby photos with those we are close to but miles away from. We could protect our privacy & the integrity of the image files this way. No compression on their site. And it’s better than just having things on my private twitter or “friends only” flickr galleries, because people have to have accounts to view those.
