    Not crazy about the new version of Flickr so have signed up to jAlbum. I got 10GB with website hosting for 3 years for less than $30. If you have your own website you get permanent use for $20.

    It's on 'special' at Bits du Jour today. There are also options for commercial use.


    Posted this here because I wanted to see that I could link from here and it works. Taken with my new Sony RX10.

  2. I've used the jAlbum software on my computer but have never uploaded anywhere. Might try it now I have self hosting again, I forgot about it. Thanks, Bill for reminding me (I wont take their hosting offer, already paid for ipernity and wish I had not.)

    Sue, I think that the problem with ipernity is that Flickr have such a large number of users that the "footfall" is with them and it is difficult to see this changing. If you have established "follower" and have built up a network through a few years of using Flickr it is difficult to start again without a significant drop in satisfaction levels.
    It does not concern me as a). I have never had many followers, and b). the images that I look at and follow are in a specialist area and I primarily use these for information and reference.
    IMHO ipernity have made a mistake in launching their "free" service, in that it is not up to the level of free Flickr, but maybe their £marketing budget would not allow it.
