I like being in control of my pictures. I had a lot of pictures on photos.yahoo.com. I did not monitor that account when Yahoo bought bought Flickr in 2005 and deleted their old photo database. I guess there was a time period when they were downloadable but it was not in the original resolution. I scanned in our old family albums and tagged everyone. I have 5 siblings so its great to be able to share all the pictures. There is also a Piwigo Gallery app for Windows 8.1.
Pretty good. Lot of features, really easy to use. Simply and powerful!
just like this this gallery! especially the ability to secure on per photo and or album basis
