That's terrible. I've seen better writting in e-mails from Nigerian princes.

Thanks for the review site information, Isamu. I see now why the writing was so poor. It is a French web site so the person who wrote that "about ipernity" section probably wasn't a native English speaker (nor, it seems, was it reviewed by anyone with better English skills). I browsed through other sections of their site and the writing was much better.

I just opened a free account yesterday, and will see what happens on both sites. So far, it's pretty easy to figure out how to use. It's not as extensive as flickr, but that will change a bit I think.

As always, weigh what you want...

Flickr was never intended as a "photo hosting" site in the first place. Personally I like the new look, and I think it's great. I'm just not sure if the transition from old to new should have been handled the way they did, given the position Flickr is in right now. Time will tell.

One thing that Flickr did have though was unmatched reliability. That might be less with another site, especially when it's small. But... you get what you pay for. Keep in mind that any free service, be it Flickr, Facebook or Epernity owes you nothing when it comes to service delivery. What stops them from screwing over paid customers are trigger happy class-action lawyers in need of a second Gulfstream.

I would always recommend getting a paid-for service instead of something free; and when you do get free hosting don't complain about advertising. Photography is not the only business in the world that has a right to fair payment for services delivered! Besides if your images are that precious isn't it worth paying for a premium hosting service?
