Digital photo sharing/storing ?s

What is everybody using to share & store digital photos these days?

I'm looking for the fastest & easiest possible way to save, e-mail, & post pics. I know I'm doing something wrong because it takes me forever using photoshop.

If it matters, image quality is fairly important in saved pics but less critical with those I'll post or e-mail.

I use smugmug and flickr...
SMugmug is where I keep everything (think I am up to 45gb so far)
and flickr was meant to be a best of....
I like smugmug.. but not sure if I'd go that route if I started over...

If you have dsl they give you a free flickr pro account.. Thats how I got mine (merged my yahoo account under my sisters dsl.. they dont allow that anymore though)

Thanks everybody!!!! My photog skills leave a bit to be desired. Might take a class for fun...

At this point I'm just trying to simplify handling & keeping pics. The method I'm using now is so inefficient it actually causes me to use the camera less.

With the recommended sites above, is it best to use the software that came with my camera (Canon)? I also have Photoshop and Picture It but am not fond of how either works.
