As I get more into photography I'd like to have my hi-res photos stored online for friends and family to access. There are plenty of free sites out there, but you are limited to the size and amount of photos/videos you upload.
There are other sites that have no limits, but there is an annual fee. So far I've looked at Smugmug ($59.99 yr) and Photobucket ($24.99 yr). Do any of you have a preference or opinions on which site out there offers the most bang for the buck?
I'm not a professional or commercial photographer; this is purely for friends and family, so I do not need certain features like the ability to sell photos, etc. Any advice will be appreciated!
