thats mine! :D
I am going to open an account, I have seen some marvelous photos there, as they say, 'A picture paints a 1,000 words' and the quality of the photos is excellent, the only thing is that people tend not to put much description with their photos, I know that sounds bad as I have not put any yet but it would be so nice to know 'where a place is' rather than trying to figure it out, the tags sometimes help but often you will see a great photo of a place and nothing to say where it is.
Overall it is a great photo site and certainly when searching for places I have gone there before any search engine ( who just seem cluttered with adverts these days ), so thatnk goodness for great forums like this one and nice photo sites, better than searching the web I think !

question about flickr, are the pictures saved at a high enough resolution (300dpi +) to have them printed? or would you have to go back and resize them all in photoshop?
I think Flickr works the same as Travellerspoint, ie. resizes several versions which is what is normally shown on the site but also keeps a full size version for you to download. On Travellerspoint, if you are viewing your own gallery, you have a "Download Original" next to each image and I think Flickr has something similar.
Note that photoshopping after it's been resized won't help you anyway. You couldn't go from 72 dpi (web) to 300dpi (print) without the size of the photo being hugely compromised, ie. it basically just doesn't work. You can photoshop downwards, but not upwards.
I do not have the Flicker account, instead my images is all over the www !
I use flickr as my backup ever since I lost most of my travel pics in a hard disk crash.
$24.95 for the pro account is a little price to pay per year for the peace of mind I now have.
I post in TP only the ones I like the best, but flickr open my pics to criticism, which I also appreciate.
I've tried a free Flickr account and was able to post a picture from flickr in my Travellerspoint blog without a problem. I don't mind using the Travellerspoint Photo Album for my friends & family reading my blog, but even with the upgraded member account (to full user), I'll probably run out of upload space in October (I'm still trying to get my September entries caught up, so am having to post two months this month, otherwise I'd be OK. Also, I made a couple of mistakes also, costly).
Anyway, that would be another reason to use Flickr - to be able to upload photo's and post them in my blog entries after I max out my upload capacity. I looked into a lot of photo web sites, others have much nicer album's and ways to organize photo's, but few will allow a link (to prevent people from stealing other's photo's).
The idea to permanently backup photo's on the web (in case of hard drive crash) is attractive, Flickr is probably a pretty good bet. Some of the smaller outfits may not be around so 'permanently'. (Sony has a great site, but they don't allow web links to the photo's).
I had the yahoo albums,but yahoo closed and will delete everything if you havent moved all your photos/albums to snapfish or flickr till okt.20(?)there where some other options,but I choose flickr.
you had to sign up for one of them and yahoo moved them over for you.
it is possible to make your photos privat,like here at TP you invite your family or friends to visit your photo gallery,or you show them everybody and then it would be possible to steal your photos.
