Phanfare distributes a photo and video organizing program called Phanfare Photo (Windows and Mac compatible) that uploads photos and video in the background while the consumer adds captions, edits and organizes the content. Phanfare Photo converts images to smaller sizes well-suited for web browsing, and uploads these images first, before full-sized images and videos get sent. As a result, albums appear on the web with the smaller-sized images very quickly. Phanfare overlaps productive user work with network latency, giving users the perception of faster uploads. Phanfare can import JPEG, Adobe Photoshop PSD images as well as AVI, QuickTime, WMV and MPEG-2 movies.
Phanfare also provides an Apple iPhone app, Phanfare Photon, for uploading and viewing photos and videos as well as plugins for major photo and video organizing programs.
Phanfare has been noted by the Wall Street Journal for its novel approach to video sharing and its media retention policies.
The ideas for cache-coherent synchronization of photos and videos to a local application cache can be traced back to work in Cache Coherence in shared memory Multiprocessing.

Phanfare continues to impress. When I first reviewed it a year ago, it immediately jumped into my list of favorite photo apps, and in the 12 months since, it's only gotten better, adding a new AJAX-based Web client, free e-mail and phone support, and (through a third party) the ability to send photos from a cell phone to your PC via local area wireless networks.

Phanfare is the best service I’ve found for the prosumer, someone shooting a lot but sticking to jpgs. You’ve still got that upload limit of 100 GB each year but if we’re talking 2 MB jpgs, that’s about 50,000 photos. It is incredibly cheap, especially with a discount code thrown in, and it’s got lots of great features that come with it. You’ll need to Premium package though to avoid file size restrictions.
