    I would donate the entire gallery space. I see no reason APUG needs to provide galleries of "Permanent Collections". A critique gallery where an image can be discussed for 3 or 4 days should be enough.

    Just my opinion

    I really like having the gallery space! Would rather pay extra for it to stay there. It is where I put my newest work. A place to see it all together and get comments and share my procees for growth.
    Stop trying to get into my mind, There is nothing there!

    You meet a lot of interesting people on APUG with a wide variety of photographic styles and methods but aside from location and favored format you don't know much about them in the text areas of the site.. I like to visit the personal galleries just to associate the folks that I meet in the forums and chat areas with their work and visual styles.

    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I'm in an evaluation stage at the moment. I need several days running restricted to get an idea of the loads. Then we can start trying some other things and gauge that as well (such as allowing a small personal gallery space for nonsubscribers)

    Mainly because we then rely on 100's of external servers to serve the images, so when 20 of those 100's of servers do not serve the image (maybe the image was deleted or the server is down), and 100's of people try to view those dead images, I get 100's of support emails from people saying the gallery is not working and images are not loading..

    Money - Which Way..?

    Sean,

    I think this has been asked before - I can't remember an answer - more about this once I select the proper place ...

    I subscribed by sending a personal check. I don't know if that was the best way - i've heard about foreign banks charging exorbitant fees for processing personal checks.

    What is the most efficient way to donate to APUG?
    Carpe erratum!!

    Paypal is the easiest for me because it ties into the site software and is automated. You can pay on paypal with money in your paypal account or via your credit card. Personal checks are no problem but some people do get hit with fees.

    never mind I found it.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.
