      SmugMug is the best solution as it has RAW support. Although, I'm not using SmugVault but, I haven’t had any issues uploading any RAW format so far with them. Thanks to Mambo.

      Photobucket has been having technical issues for some time and is, in fact, down right now.

      Also, you REALLY need a copy editor. Are you a non-native English speaker?
