Hello -- What does everyone use for online photo sharing and backup?

Basically I want to:

-Have a full resolution backup of all my JPGs
-Be able to create/share albums with specific people via E-mail, unique URL, etc..
-Not allow anyone except me to download the original JPG
-They shouldn't have to have an account for that service
-At least 50GB of storage, prefer not to spend over $50 a year

So far it seems like Picasa and the new Photobucket allow for this. I started messing around with Flickr but it seems like a mess with sharing when you don't want things public, and people don't have Flickr accounts.

I really like Skydrive's interface, but there is no way to block people from downloading the original file which is just silly.

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks

Zenfolio has a variety of options, but you'll need to read up on which plan has all the criteria you need - it may be more than $50 for everything you want: Zenfolio - Professional photo and video hosting for photographers and enthusiasts. (but at least they haven't tried to pull a huge price increase like Smugmug did recently, but sorta retracted on)

Hmm, I just started playing around with Zenfolio and I like it so far. Do you sell anything on there, wondering how easy that is?

I use Dropbox for my full jpeg files...I don't 'share', and I use a tough PW.
Flickr, Photobucket and many similar are fine for reduced size jpegs for 'sharing'/showing albums, but I never put full size pics up there as it is asking for someone to rip a file(s), imo.

There are several that have been mentioned on this forum in the past, but dunno which are 'better'. I am happy with DB simply as a cloud repository, in addition to my other methods of backup.
GL, mD

PS...Zenfolio looks very interesting. Thanks for the tip & link, atlantagreg!

I use Flickr, and also Photobucket. The latter has seen some revisions (and is in beta stage) so I'm not well versed with it yet (although, it appears that I'm occasionally losing EXIF and am finding images lose their crispness when using the links. The images are sharper than being rendered online, but these may be "beta-software" issue.

You can always get you own domain for a few bucks a month and install something like Gallery which is free.

That's kind of like forum software for images. You can set permissions etc. No advertisements and most importantly you retain full control of everything.
