Fotki Free vs Fotki Premium

Photo hosting and storage sites are almost a necessity these days. Nearly everyone has a digital camera and uses the heck out of it. Rapidly people come to realize the need for having someone hold all those pictures for them. Protect against loss of data at home, avoid clogging emails with cumbersome attachments, and not least of all, take their photos and make them look better, put them in a nicer environment to share and show to the world.
Fotki has a free version and a premium version. Fanatics for both are easy to find. The free version allows you fifty megabytes of storage space, fifty megabytes of email space, and you have to view not so nasty advertisements on your display. That's great, easy, a moderate amount of space to utilize, great for starters. Certainly worth doing for free.

However, for even the regular Joe user on Fotki, soon enough, that's not enough. Fifty megabytes can be eaten up easily within a year of regular photo storage. And by that time you will have been entrenched in the Fotki culture, and need to pay the premium service fees. But no worry, the premium customers are more than satisfied with what they get for what they pay.

With the premium account, Fotki gives you a lot of bang for your buck. No advertising, unlimited photo storage space, five hundred megabytes of email space, and some other really, really handy features. With a premium subscription, you can control the download of original photos, which to the person on the public end, this is a big downside to Fotki. It's impossible to snatch really great photos for website building and just stealing then for your own use when you come across someone using Fotki to store their photographs. With Fotki's premium membership, you can set who is allowed to download your originals.
