3) There are so many other photo sites out there. Why are you bothering?

A while back, I wanted to find a website where I could upload a few family photos to show to some relatives and acquaintances. All the sites I located needed the viewers to create an account and/or associated the photos with my Facebook/Google/other social media accounts and/or were covered with advertising and/or just looked dodgy. In the end I decided it was easier write my own photo upload and display engine, limiting the output to a simple and lean HTML5 responsive layout. Having put the work into creating the code, I thought that maybe others would also find it useful, so I registered the name pixtrove.com and wrote these associated admin pages. Will anyone else find such a basic interface useful? I guess time will tell.

4) Aren't you just going to end up with a bunch of scammers trying to upload porn to the site?

That's the main stumbling block at the moment: How to limit site users to people who actually want to use it for the purpose for which it was designed. Any advice would be gladly received.
