Here is a quick quote:

"Contributors can now download their own portfolio without being charged for the download. In the past there have been Contributors who experienced personal dilemmas such as house break-ins, crashed hard disks and corrupted backup drives which resulted in loss of precious works."

See here for more details:

StockXpert already does this, but it is nice to see another site add this feature.

What do you think?

Very good. Just in case something happens, or if I need one of my images while not on my own computer. It's particularly useful with 123rf, since they have a high acceptance rate, which again means that I have one of my largest portfolios there. That can not be said about StockXpert.

Some people use Flickr as an online archive.

You can upload an unlimited amount of full-rez shots, and flag them as them as "private" to prevent theft. Cost is very low: $25/year.

A few times i have DL misplaced files from StockXpert and they have been as expected but I DLed a few files from 123rf and I was surprised the file size was so low.

Uploaded file 4.52 MB downloaded file 1.04MB

Uploaded file 3.42MB downloaded file 705K

So not really much use if you want to reupload somewhere else, i wonder if paying customers are getting these small files. I always thought it was weird how they quoted the RAW size of an image when I have always just uploaded JPGS.
