I am mortified. The website I use to host my pictures, Smugmug, made a fiasco out of a new format rollout today. They put out a video which was pumping up everyone about this fantastic new site, mostly self congratulatory by the way. So I go in today to upgrade and migrate only to find numerous problems, mainly zero instructions on how to do some basic things in order to get started. It is NOT intuitive for some things. And also it bombed out, deleted photos, and the list goes on. The smugmug forum is being bombarded with people complaining.
The most disappointing thing of all is they have eliminated their smugmug communities which was my favorite part. The communities I belonged to greatly helped me establish relationships with other people to learn and grow as a photographer.
This is a HUGE fail and I will now be forced to look elsewhere for a photo hosting site.
***For all you photographers out there on wordpress, I know you can purchase photography templates but I’m wondering how you like it. I’m considering using wordpress. Please take a moment to tell me what you love about it and what you don’t or what templates you like. I would really appreciate your feedback.***
