Blipfoto

Blipfoto is possibly the most elegant, but options are very strict. Free membership allows you to upload a picture a day, from the day you sign up.

Blipfoto not only restricts members from uploading one photo per day, but also restricts members to assigning uploaded photos on the exact date they were taken. That said, you don’t have to physically upload them on that exact day.

You can choose to display the photograph’s EXIF data, the number of times an image has been viewed, image ratings from other members and tags; amongst other things.

Member journal pages display the latest entry that has been uploaded, and there are two ways to navigate through the photos. Either using the small calendar beneath the photo, you can jump to the photo uploaded on any given date, or you can simply browse through the pictures in chronological order.

One of Blipfoto’s strengths is the fact that all uploaded photos are displayed as thumbnails on the front page, giving all members a chance to get noticed. And because of the strong community built around the site, members are constantly giving feedback.

You can subscribe to other members’ journals, but adding photos to your favourites is a feature only available to paying members.

Blipfoto has great social media integration, allowing users to automatically update their Twitter and Facebook feeds, and Blipfoto has an open API so that users can develop new ways to interact with the site.

iPhone and iPod Touch users can also benefit from the free app [iTunes link] available in the App Store. The application is a stripped down version of the site – allowing you to browse a small selection of the latest photographs, upload photos to your journal and read your latest comments.
