I am interested in investigating alternatives to Flickr Pro - I get it free with my Telecom Broadband package but i find the interface really unintuitive and feels really dated.

Looking for something that's clean and easy to use to backup and share my home photos and videos (1080p).
I currently use a combination of dropbox,, iphoto, picasa and flickr pro - to share photos with my family back in ireland and over in Canada... finally got to the stage where i want to do a clean up and organize them all, have one single place for them all and keep them nice and organized...

so looking for something that:

- Has at least 25 gig of storage space (currently photos are up to about 23.6 gig)
- is clean and modern and will allow me to easily share certain folders with family who are not tech savvy
- allows photos and 1080p videos to be kept in their original format
- preferably allows auto upload via iphone as half the time the photos come from my 4S
- has an easy way to auto backup - I want to automate the backup of all my photos as I tend to only do it when i remember which is every few months and would be gutted if i lost any due to theft or hardware failure...

I'm sure others are in the same boat and if anyone has found a good solution please share - I will be doing some research over the next few days and will share my findings if useful.

And 500PX is becoming popular. Certainly with professional photographers.

And if you just want lots of storage, snapfish do unlimited storage.
