It took me a few days but I got to move thousands of photographs from my Smugmug account to Flickr. Smugmug is a nice and capable service but my resources are these times a bit more limited so I was worried to get in problems in the future and have a blog full of white boxes instead of photographs. So, being here or not, the photographs are going to stay.

To me it’s more comfortable to have my photographs in an online storage service because this way I don’t fill my storage limit in WordPress, for example with thousands of posts I just occupy approximately 17 megabytes of 3000 megabytes allowed to my free account because the photographs here are more links to previously Smugmug and now Flickr, otherwise my photographs use to weight between 5 to 15 megabytes so in less of a year I would be reached my limit. Besides I saw that my photographs are reproduced with high quality from Flick so it’s actually quite good. My thanks to Smugmug service. If you reader would ask if one is better than the other I’d say that Smugmug is nicer to arrange and customize your galleries, excellent support and it seems safer to protect your photographs; Flickr is nicer to have more exposure and it’s free, sometimes that alone can weight a lot when you aren’t a professional photographer, just a guy with a camera.

The other task was to replace the photographs uploaded to Smugmug account in WordPress (I’ve almost finished it) with the same photographs but uploaded to Flickr so you are not going to notice a change ;-)
