    yea, then do it!

    I want to, but I need to create a decent looking watermark, so nga's dont steal my photos (especially if your uploading full size images)

    I'd check smugmug out before you buy flickr. I think you may like it better. I know I do.

    whats the real difference?

    If they host large files without going down on a consistent basis, and what's the cost for smugmug (for a year, or per month)?

    I really am looking for someplace to host full size files

    really, you might be surprised. especially with hi-res images. If you can get away with it, it is much better be thief or a crook, instead of working for something (and for that reason I want to become a safe and vault technician ;) )

    I've got a flickr pro account and use SmuggLr to import the sets of photos to my smug mug.

    I love it.

    How do you do direct output from light room? I use the flickr standable uploader... is there an even better way?

    To save you lazy bastards a click, wouldn't want you to bruise your shutter finger.

    And yea, this is hands down the best way I have found to do the uploads... if only I could edit and have it overwrite the original it would be perfect... oh well, I don't think that's possible anyway.

    i got a flickr pro account from a friend that works at yahoo. I havent done anything with it just because I use my own site for hosting. Before I was looking into both smug and flickr. I like the layout of smug, but havent really tried them out
