Photobucket vs Smugmug

I've decided to go with Smugmug. Its cheapest plan (about $48/year) is not much more than I was paying for PB (that plan was since discontinued but I was grandfathered in) and has all the same PB type things I wanted, like 3rd party hosting and ease of use, and privacy of my albums.

I used a month's trial on it (2 two-week trials, they're pretty generous about it) and yes, it seems to be worth it. If anyone else wants to sign up, please check out the refer a friend link for me:

https://secure.smugmug.com/signup?Coupon=8Rwhgh

(Using this gets you a 20% discount on your own subscription)

Basically, it doesn't look like any free service offers what PB used to. Bandwidth costs too much these days and I think that's the bottom line. Either get your own domain or go with a photo hosting service like this. The old PB era seems to be over.

Anyway - I signed up for a year and were it not for the depressing problem of fixing over ten year's worth of links I would convert everything. But afaik there's no simple easy way to do that, which is a drag.
