Hello there, i hope this is not against any of rules, but this talk will not be about rival webpages, so ...

Today i uploaded few photos on 500px, but noticed portfolio will be gone after 2 days, and they want to pay for this function ( :lol: like i'm going anyways...). I understand they need to pay hosting and support from hosting, but i would rather pay some % from sold photos, that way they would try more to sell them, this way I must try to sell them, and it does not have any benefits (okay i'm going to stop now) ...

So, do you know another free - well known portfolio site? I am using picasa, but it has none information about viewcounts of pistures...

All advices are welcomed.

I'm new to DSLR's, so please be patient and take my opinions with reserve. Thank you : ) Yes, i am Canon man.

I'm not sure exactly what you're after, but I'm a regular on deviantArt which may tick some or more of those boxes. They have free and paid levels, where the free one is ad based (both for the user and visitors) with extra perks on the paid level. It isn't a photo only site but aims to be a universal art site which can be good and bad due to the wide scope and variety. Generally it is kinda like flickr with a community and groups, but I think it is a little better. You do get a count of views/favs on each item but no further breakdown.

You can sell prints through them but they do take a fair cut for managing it. It isn't intended as a micro-stock site, but they do have an open stock section that isn't geared towards making an income. They also do a portfolio site connected to the above, which is more intended as a display of works, not something to directly sell or for others to interact with.

My main site (currently on free level as I never got round to renewing recently - there's normally some more stuff on the page):

A random portfolio I threw up just to see how it worked:

Canon DSLRs: 7D2, 7D1, 5D2, 1D, 600D, 450D full spectrum, 300D IR mod
Lenses: EF 35/2, 85/1.8, 135/2+SF, 70-300L, 100-400L, 100L, MP-E 65, EF-S 10-18, 15-85
3rd party: Zeiss 2/50 makro, Samyang 8mm fisheye, Sigma 50/1.4A, 150 macro, 120-300 f/2.8 OS
Compacts: Sony HX9V, Fuji X100.
