Picasa web albums beats competition (including PBase)

Post Sat Dec 23, 2006 12:36 am


I just noticed through my Gmail account that Picasa web albums is now online and the storage rate is amazing!

6.25GB ($25 USD per year)

Just a thought to the admins of the website to think about the storage capacity and a detailed stats that seems to be light years away.

Merry Christmas all

Maybe I am missing something here as often I do, but if I just needed a place to store my photos, I would just keep them on my external hard drive and occasionally archive them to DVDs. I am here to share my photo and to learn from the pbase community including the forums. Like I said, maybe I am missing something.

Maybe other people are looking for more flexibility and share even more pictures, and use them in their websites and blogs at the best price possible!

I would say, yes you're missing that.

Merry Christmas

You can't be serious. There's price (easy to beat) and there's quality (that's quite a different story!).

Let's see... Just a few questions:

Do they support style sheets? (dark background, for example)
Can you display your photography without any blurb, popups, ads?
Can you specify camera, film, lens?
Can you specify location, artist, keywords?
Can you link between galleries?
Can you reload an image (better scan, correction?)
Can you have comments, dialogs etc?

Of course PBase is not necessary the a-and-o forever, the more that new features sometimes seem to be sometyhing what I do not need or even know what to do with it (POD, Blog??) but it is still a landmark site, which started a fully new understanding for posting photography.

Does anyone know if Picasa supports direct linking to photos for display on website forums? Like if you post a picture on a forum, you can type in [img...]http://'website'/image/xxxxx.jpg[/img...], and the photo will display within your post on the forum?

Thanks,
Kurt

Yes we do.

"Paying PBase customers can direct link to their own public images as long as they have direct linking enabled on the image's parent gallery. If you try to direct link to images that are non-public or password-protected, it will fail."

See the help pages for more information:

I'd suggest you ask in the Picaso Forums for information about how they're set up.

I have signed up Google's Picasa web albums for a test drive, and found that it lacks many features that Pbase has. At this point, Google is not yet a true competitor of Pbase. However, Yahoo's Flickr is.

Flickr does a great job in cross-referencing photos via its Tag, Favorite, and Group features. Pbase has tried to cross-reference via Topic feature, however, it is not as effective, IMHO.

Pbase's competitive advantages right now are: custom page layout with HTML, display of lense information, and higher percentage of users who are professional and serious photographers (based on my perception).

Of course, the above spam will remain in this thread for a long time as it would appear that PBase rarely monitors the forums any more.

I have suggested several times that the forums should have moderators who can remove spam. These requests were ignored by PBase and opposed by several of the "regulars" on the forums.

PBase does have the most beautiful galleries which is why I've stayed over the years. I have back-up albums on Picasa in case PBase goes out of business. Picasa is a modern, dynamic site (though it has its clunky aspects like ordering albums) whereas PBase has provided the essentials and fits my workflow well, but the site is slow to innovate. My photos look great on PBase & that's what's important.

I can say this about all the other sites. I've used Flickr, Zenfolio, Smugmug, Picasa Web and I just returned to Pbase. Each of the others have some seemingly attractive features but mostly it is the storage amount. What the others lack is the ability to display my photos the way I want. The resolution and size I choose. Each of the others employ some dynamic resizing and compression which affects the quality of the photo being displayed.

I'm one of those that have been there done that and the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
