    Hi,
    After reading several threads about online printing, I thought I'd give some a trial.... I really like the Ofoto idea - with the on-line albums.... but it seems to take forever to upload pictures.... I'm on NTL broadband at 750kb, so I would expect it to be quicker.

    Is this simply the popularity of Ofoto's site, or is it something I'm doing (or not, as the case may be!)

    For example - if I try to upload 15 pictures (of about 1.5mb each) it says it'll take 40 mins - sort of what I'd expect.... BUT it seems to complete about 80% of the first picture and then re-try, sometimes it completes it, sometimes it doesn't and then goes onto the next - all the time the upload time increases, until at 7 hours(!) I cancel the upload altogether....

    I've got a fair few pictures (1000+!) that I'd like to upload, share and print, but it's gonna take me a few years at this rate!

    Are there any recommended alternatives (for sharing and printing) - or am I being too ambitious with the free album space they offer?

    Thanks.

    i never had any probelms uploading to Ofoto, but then I only sent 10. However, when I sent 60 to photobox I had similar problems to yours. I actually went out and left them uploading, and 4 hours later they were still uploading! When I calcelled it though and tried at a different time (late at night) it all went no problems.
