    Default Flickr - SmugMug - Deviant art - Imagekind - Picassa

    Hi All,

    I wanted to do a podcast with someone on the differences between these services...but it seems like they bailed.

    So I started this thread as a zone for people to outline the main differences.

    www.smugmug.com
    www.deviantart.com
    www.imagekind.com

    Thanks all!

    this is weird because I just posted the deviantart link on Michael's flickr rant post.
    Deviantart is interesting because of the variety: art, digital art, photography. It's very popular among my daughter's friends
    <insert wee brag here:

    I find that the photos are often very creative. Like these ones:

    I see Flickr as the "MySpace" of photography. Whether you like it or not it's been around a long time and it has a lot of people signed up. It's sort of the place where a lot of people "hang out" and discuss and share images.

    DeviantArt seems to be very focussed around imagery of all kinds that can be very artistic - almost to the extreme - and seems to appeal mostly to "non-conformists". It's Flickr for people who think Flickr is too mainstream for them.

    Not familiar with ImageKind.

    I've been to SmugMug before but I don't stay. Generally I find it seems to be a great place for people who want to share photos with family and friends online and at the same time use it as a backup service.

    PicasaWeb fits here too. It's much like SmugMug to me though not nearly as mature and still suffering from lack of features. It's tied into the Picasa desktop app very well which makes it VERY easy to share photos with family and friends so it has it's place.

    That's my
