Re: flickr
Have a look at my Flickr site and see which groups I link to, for starters. There's a bewildering amount.

Re: flickr
Before joining any groups read the T&C's as for instance the official Olympus group for europe want the rights to your shots just about.

Search for types of group like landscapes or B&W Olympus of 4/3 or m4/3 etc

Re: flickr
If you do a search on Olympus it will bring up a list of Olympus cameras and lenses.

Re: flickr
Thanks Guys, there are indeed a bewildering number of groups...good point Alf ref Ts & Cs

I like the flickr page layout, its like standing back and seeing all of your albums open on all pages at the same time.

Flickr is massive, I gave it away years ago.

Have just opened a Zenfolio free trial account.

Re: flickr
Zenfolio looks the business with facilities for on line sales, I for one would be interested to know how you get on with it

Re: flickr
I like my zenfolio account but it is not free and not as "social" as flickr, depends what you want from it.

I have sold a few prints from it and use it for ordering my own for convenience. I'm not keen on photo-bucket but the quality of one vision imaging their better photo lab, seems good.

If you want a discount code let me know ;)

Re: flickr
I've already learnt that Zenfolio isn't designed to be a social photo sharing site. It appears to be more sales oriented and sophisticated than most.
I will let you know how get on and whether I continue after the free trial period.

Re: flickr
It has already saved my bacon following a hard drive fail, luckily I had all my personal pics backed up on Zenfolio and was able to download them again.

That was worth the fee on its own!

If you do sign up then you can use this code to get 10% off, I get a referral credit too.
