This is an update on the co-branding problem associated with the DPChallenge Photo Community on smugmug.

I found that if you set the Appearance option to smugmug: on the galleries that you associate with the DPChallenge community, then the co-branding stuff of the community creator (me) will not show up on your galleries. This option can be found near the bottom of the customize gallery page for your gallery...

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/16230/orig/164252.gif', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/16230/orig/164252.gif', '/') + 1) . '

Although not a complete solution, it will allow you to add your galleries to the community and have people view them without my co-branding.

The folks at smugmug have told me that they are in the process of a major overhaul of the features available to smugmug photo communities, but they couldn't say when the work will be completed.

Regards,
Mick

You got it!

I rattled their cage a couple times, and they snarled back at me. They say they're looking into it.

Don't know why a community defaults to the person who set it up.

Yup, I noticed that too. There's an option to turn this on/off, but it appears to be broken. It's always marked as Off, and changing it has no effect, yet even though it's always shown as Off, it's actually always On. I'm currently working with the PTBs at smugmug to get this fixed.

I haven't had any problems with Pbase. They, also, have a password protect system in place. What surprised me is that I've had over 20,000 hits on my profile/galleries in a relatively short time. (Only 5,000 here and I've been here going on 2 years. ? )

I hated the way all the other sites were set up, so I decided on pbase. It was either pbase or get my own //www.whatever.com name and try to build a site.

My wife is kinda jittery about posting our family photos on the site.

The printing services (Ofoto, Snapfish, etc.) do this automatically. MyFamily.com also does, along with a variety of other family-oriented features.

Lets add one more to the mix. I have my photos hosted by Fotki.com. Unlimited storage space and they do allow you to link to your photos. Lots of options. the price is going up on Monday to $50/yr. They're having a special right now. Sign up before Monday for $25.

Thanks for the quick responses Laurie. I was wanting them to go directly to my site but I guess I need to give them the gallery website.

You will need to email the password to the folks who are allowed to see the gallery and they can open it from there. At least that's what I've done in the past.

Yes, when you are in your gallery of choice, click on "Customize Gallery" and then there are lots of controls and choices you can make. :o)

Any other dpchallengers that have a smugmug account, please feel free to add your galleries too. The community is at //www.smugmug.com/community/DPChallenge


I also joined the dpchallenge community at smugmug. Will connect galleries soon. I joined Smugmug couple of months ago on the advise of several DPC'ers and haven't regretted it.

Another good site for PAD and that sort of projects is buzznet.

Thanks Mick. Good idea. I added one of my galleries and will add more later as i build the site up.

Awesome Fritz! Be sure to give us a link when you're ready so we can go check out the goods.

I'm still in the process of adding stuff to my galleries too. My problem is a major lack of decent images to upload. :) I never get any time to take any pics!

Looks like I will have to give Smugmug a try.

If you do signup, you can save money by entering my personal coupon qzDagz7w1S78w in the 'Referred by' field on the signup form.

More importantly, it also saves me money. :)

Any ideas why they are not able to use the link?


For those interested I think I may have figured it out. My e-mail program automatically inserts hyperlinks with url's and e-mail addresses. I think what happened is I cut and pasted the entire message to one group of people from another e-mail I had sent. I bet I lost the hyperlink with that action.

I use tinypic.com for all my photo storage needs. It's on a linux dedicated server network, and best of all, the URLs will always be tiny!
