We switched out of SmugMug.com and into an all WordPress site (including photos!)…
After a few weeks, we realized that we were not using all of SmugMug.com features that came with the plan. We got the Portfolio account ($20/month) vs the Power account ($8/month) so we can use the watermark features. $144/year for watermarking is a lot of money!
Thanks to NextGen Gallery and a few other plugins. We are now fully contained within WordPress. There is a slight difference in the pictures quality, but generally speaking it is not a huge difference for me at this time…
Let me know what you think…
I wanted to get a site going… After asking my Dad, he selected:
- SmugMug.com to store all of my photos.
- Secure unlimited storage of photos (I can have all of my photos in one place!)
- Watermarks can be automatically applied.
- Virtual photo libraries:
- ability to assign a photo to multiple galleries without creating copies.
- Easy Customization
- WordPress to do my blogging
- I can easily integrate the two sites via a plugin
