I’m an avid photographer and wanted a place to post my photos that’s clean, simple, fast, and not part of some social networking site. All the popular photo-hosting sites (Flickr, 500px, SmugMug, Zenfolio, etc.) tend to be slow and bloated, with lots of features that I don’t want or need. Eventually I gave up trying to find an existing service, and built my own: Lightbox (http://lghtbx.com).
I’ve been using it for a few months now, and it’s been working great for me, so I figured I’d start sharing it with others in case anyone else finds it useful. If you try it, let me know what you think!
