Our Smugmug friends have decided to (cough) double their pricing rate for pro support from $150 to $300 a year. That's where we host the Fin Foundation site and as a non profit I'm not happy supporting that kind of change if I have better options. I know about Zenfolio, are there other hosting sites that you can recommend we check out?

I'd appreciate any help,
Steve

Hi Steve,

Does the Fin Foundation sell images through SmugMug?

If not, the portfolio version (non-sales) of the Pro membership is unchanged at $150.

Yes we do Adam, not many but since every dime goes to the kids it helps. It's not quite unchanged, they are messing with some of the things that have made Smugmug so good up to now like the Watermarking tool. Yesterday their site said it would only be available with the Pro account. Today after the tide of unhappy customers washed over them it's showing up as included in the Portfolio level. Guess things are still in flux. Luckily we just paid up in June so we have some time at the old rate before we have to decide.

Cheers,
Steve
