    My problem with SmugMug is the lack of decent organization tools. As much as some people like to harp on Flickr’s UI, the Organizr is a great tool, especially for batch operations. SmugMug doesn’t even support batch operations or having photos in multiple albums. This is a basic feature to me.

    I only joined SmugMug about two months ago so that I could integrate print sales into my website. Before that I hosted everything on Flickr (which I still do). $150 is already a sharp increase from the $50 I pay Flickr, but I took the leap. This increase makes SmugMug unprofitable for me.

    If someone from Flickr is reading this, add print sales to Flickr! I would pay (slightly) more for the privilege, say $75 per year.
