    It’s all I’ve ever used and I’ve never seen the red x of death. They do have scheduled outages sometimes but they’re usually posted beforehand on the main Flickr page so they’re avoidable most of the time. Good luck!

    Flickr works great for me, too. I used the free account for Farktography for many months before I went pro, and I have never had a problem with either version.

    I would like to plug dreamhost.com

    I use them, and they have a promotional code just for me: “stapler”.
    Mostly I just wanted to plug that.

    I’ve had Flickr pro for just a month or so now. I love it and have only had one little problem so far. It was not with linking to any other site. I had uploaded some photos and for some reason all of those new images disappeared like Flickr defaulted to a backup server or something. So I reloaded those new photos and went back a couple of hours later to find that Flickr had fixed the original problem so I then had duplicates of all of the new photos.
    Phew! But I really do like Flickr Pro. I imagine the same thing would happen even if you weren’t pro.
    Meh.

    I alternate between Flickr and ImageShack. The entries typically break between the ones I think are “good” (-> Flickr) and the other ones (-> ImageShack). I really haven’t had a problem with either.

    I don’t use a Flickr Pro account.

    Thanks for the input
    I got the pro account
    Here’s a link http://www.flickr.com/photos/aimlesslass/sets/

    I’m still uploading quite a bit (slowly on dial up).
    I’m editing the descriptions on the fast connection at work.
    Check back for updates.
    I’ve still got over a year to load 🙄

    It’s attached to your profile that you can edit yourself at http://www.farktography.net/user.php?op=edituser. Once you’ve saved your changes on that page, then click on the ‘Profile’ at the top of this section at http://www.farktography.net/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=profile&mode=editprofile and click ‘Refresh your postnuke profile’.

    Also, if you want to change any of your personal settings, there’s a link at the top of the header, right next to ‘Welcome to the farktography.net’ — just click your name.

    Have you looked at third party tools like jUploader? You can set everything you want on the pictures up, security settings, descriptions, etc, BEFORE you upload. If you’re doing a lot of uploading (or on a slow link!) it’s handy to get everything set the way you want, hit upload, and go to bed. When it’s done, you don’t need to go back and tweak anything.
