A bit of caution here.  I have a Box.net account also, but once left a
direct-access url open to a painting I had done that I wanted to show
selected individuals.  A month or so later I got a note from Box.net that it
had been *downloaded *more than 60 times in the intervening period.  One
needs to be certain he's using the right url, and that the specifics of who
can download the image are specified.

Anyone can download anything from Flickr, and for Pete's sake *never *put
anything important to you on Facebook.  Stuff is stolen there right and
left, including from so-called art sharing sites.

The only image-sharing site I know of where your images can't be downloaded,
even by right-clicking on the image, is Zenfolio.  Check out
www.zenfolio.com.
