I’m one of those who’s cranky about the whole you-need-a-yahoo-login-to-us-flickr thing. Yes, Yahoo! own flickr, blah blah blah. We knew this would happen eventually, blah blah blah.

Still sucks, though.

flickr is cool. and heatherchamp is cool because she’s offering flickr pro refunds out of “her own pocket”. but that doesn’t excuse the fact that Yahoo! sucks. It’s always been uncool and not even flickr could improve its cred.

SO! I’ve been looking for flickr alternatives and am looking at picasa, 23 and smugmug. I tried Picasa first because I have more gmail accounts than I know what to do with. It’s okay, but the picasa software still freaks me out a bit. 23 looked interesting after reading this review for flickr refugees. then i saw that smugmug is offering 50% off the subscription price to flickr refugees. i’ve signed up for their 2 week trial and am starting to get an idea about how it works.

In short, nothing is as awesome as flickr, but that won’t stop me from trying to get away.
