The web is becoming more media rich by the day and an example of this is SmugMug.com. With existing photo management sites like Flickr and Picasa, what does SmugMug have to offer? At first glance, you might think it’s digital quality. The basic feeling of the site is that SmugMug is the HDTVof photo sites. But SmugMug offers that and considerably more.
Other photo sharing sites are more limited than SmugMug in how photos are displayed. You’ll notice that every Flickr page is identical, whereas SmugMug allows the user to customize a page. However, this is slightly complicated currently, as it requires understanding HTML coding, and could be made simpler for novices through a more visual interface.
SmugMug also allows users to display photos as thumbnails, images, slideshow, or a journal, which makes it a prime candidate for photo-blogging. If you’re not using the site to share photos publicly, there are enhanced security settings. Otherwise the site lets viewers download and make high-quality prints.
