Password Protected Gallery?

Hi everyone, I really need some help! I have undertaken a pregnancy shoot for a client and she understandably wants to keep the images private so I can't put them on my usual Clikpic site as it doesn't have the option to password protect galleries. I was then looking for a website that offers free (or cheap) password protected online galleries and found Fotopic but there site seems to be down over the past 24 hours. Can anyone recommend another site where I can upload images into a password protected gallery?
Thank you in advance.

Great bit of advice, thank you! I now have the gallery with them for 30 days so that solved this immediate problem.

After the trial ends though, unfortunately they don't do password protection unless you buy the advanced package which is nearly 200 a year....I'm not keen to pay to run 2 websites!

Does anyone know a free service where you can upload galleries and make them password protected or at least create a unique URL that isn't accessible from their main site....I'm not looking to create a website, just have galleries that's all. Fotopic looked great, but this appears not to be working now.

Thank you!

Doesn't Flickr offer a private friends and family option?

Flickr does have that sort of thing.

If your cliuent is a Flickr member you can mark them as a friend and mark the images only for friends.

If they are not a member you can create a special link to that collection/set of images that allowas access to them. You can also revoke that link at any time.

I see you use a Canon 400d. You could try Canon Image gateway.
It might give you what you are looking for.

How about jalbum. Free to use and you can password protect it. You just need a bit of web space.

Not the cheapest but Photocart is excellent. A one off payment of $279.00 and it sits on your own webspace. Its fully customisable, tons of options and easy to maintain.

Were you aware that with the super pro clikpic you can have single gallery protection, if this is somthing you will use regulary might be worth upgrading it will save you having a seperate site.

I didn't think touting for business was allowed on the forums?
