Photography Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional, enthusiast and amateur photographers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Our photography group recently held a figure photography session, with a nude model. We want to share our photos, but don't want to fall foul of strict site rules regarding nudity. Normally I'd use Picasa, but after trawling through their FAQ I found that they explicitly forbid nudity. Where's the best place to share (tasteful) nude shots?

up vote 9 down vote accepted allows them in public galleries. There are a lot of good pros there that show excellent work in all categories, including nudes.

There paying and free memberships. The free membership limits the gallery size and number of uploads.

You're allowed to host them on SmugMug as long as it's a non-public gallery (Note: I am affiliated w/said site :))

In addition to SmugMug being a great host they also are involved with DGrin which has a Go Figure Forum that is a good place to get comments that are constructive.

You also can try SmugMug for a 14 day trial if you want.

is this allowed? disclosure of affiliation with a suggested website seems reasonable, but coupons seems to stretch into propaganda realm, no? It's very nice to offer discounts, but sort of..."wrong"? –  JoséNunoFerreira Feb 21 '11 at 23:57

If you want a very high quality gallery site, where artistic nudes are very appreciated, is a great option. Warning: their standards are SUpER high!

But 1x isn't a photo sharing site, you have to actually submit and be accepted (unless that has changed), which is not what the OP is asking for. –  Robin Aug 1 '13 at 18:44

Flickr allows nudes as long as you change the image's "safety level" so kiddos and people at work don't get them popping up on a search; you're perfectly within the ToS. You can also make groups and galleries private if you'd rather limit who can see the photos and/or comment on them...

I have a friend who switched from Flickr to DeviantArt after shooting at a fetish photography workshop. DeviantArt allows nude images, but requires the viewers to have an account so they can change their settings to view adult-rated material. (This works even when both the poster and the viewer have free accounts only).

This friend then stayed with DeviantArt for all kinds of photography and stopped using Flickr, because he said that on DeviantArt, there is a higher chance of random people seeing his pictures and offering constructive critique. So I suppose it can be a good option.
