    I would be interested in others experiences with www.smugmug.com. They have
    the features I would be looking for in a site of this nature, but are they a
    company I should want to deal with. I get very nervous when I am going to
    allow them to collect money for me, but I don't have a contact for them
    other than the net. Thanks in advance

    I have enjoyed using them so far. I've made over $22 in sales now, but
    haven't collected it yet. It's flexible and easy to use, and the site
    looks good. The pro account has everything I wanted. The one thing you
    have to do if you want to sell pix is make sure you up the prices from
    the Smugmug default, or you don't get anything.

    Well, I can't give you any information on whether they're a company you
    should want to deal with.

    I've used them since April 16, 2004, and I've been very happy with their
    service. I have started using Phanfare to host my videos since they charge
    US$300 per life for their site and the videos can be bigger. I chose
    smugmug over Pbase because smugmug has more features. I prefer their search
    with keywords and their geotagging.

    Having no clue what you're looking for in a site of this nature, I can't be
    more specific in my comments.

    In over a year of use I have no complaints at all. I also
    have no reason to suspect they are anything less than
    completely honest.

    Haven't used the selling service but their customer support is very
    quick to respond and excellent.
