My favorite site to organize, store, and show off our family’s pics!

November 23, 2009 by  

Picture 495I searched HIGH and LOW for a solution to my ever-growing problem of storing and exhibiting my family’s photos. More importantly, I wanted family to be able to download a HIGH RESOLUTION image at NO COST (vs. other mainstream sites that charge to do so).

Anyway, I can’t say enough great things about Phanfare.  If you’re interested in seeing my albums (it took me just a few long days to upload EVERYTHING back from the day my oldest was born in 2002), please let me know. There are some pregnancy shots of the belly/boooo-day that I don’t want to share with the world, but would be willing to share if you were super-interested… just email me at: kfotheringham@me.com and I’ll get you over the link.

Why pay for photo and video hosting?

There are certainly sites that will host your photos and videos for free. But as your mother always said, you get what you pay for.

Here are some of the benefits of Phanfare over free sites.

  • Unlimited online storage. Easier and more reliable than backing up photos and videos locally.
  • No advertising on your albums.
  • Your own destination URL at yourname.phanfare.com.
  • Customer support from super-smart Support Wizards on any aspect of your Phanfare experience.
  • Web viewing with large images and full screen HD videos.
  • No requirement that viewers register.
  • Web slideshows that go full screen and include video.
  • A true customer relationship. When someone is holding your precious photos and videos, you want the standing of being a paying customer, not an eyeball.
  • Archival fullsize originals kept on the service, unlike the social networks, which downsample.
  • Access to your archival fullsize originals, unlike the online photo finishers who want to sell you back your own images on paper but otherwise restrict access.
  • No requirement that you buy merchandise, unlike some of the online photo finishers who threaten to remove your photos if you don’t keep buying merchandise.
  • Advanced hosting features such as using your own domain name and customizing color schemes.
  • Gigantic limits on videos. You can upload a video that is up to 2 GB.
  • A sustainable business model. Most free sites eventually go under. Yahoo!, Sony, AOL and others have all shutdown free sites.
