Best free image hosting?
9/4/08 2:07:30 PM
Not sure which forum is best for this, decided a group of web graphic designers might know best about storing graphics online :)

I've bought all the new parts for my new PC, and out of frustration of a lack of illustrated builds as inspiration for me, I'm thinking about taking step-by-step photos of my build and putting them up here, or on another forum or whatever, as a guide for me, help for other newbies, and just general geek porn :). To do that though, I'll need somewhere to store my photos online.

For small temporary stuff, I've usually just used my MySpace and Facebook album folders, but obviously they're a pain to work with (MySpace automatically resizes photos for instance, unsure about Facebook, and they're both slooow). So I'm thinking of getting an account with something like PhotoBucket, ImageHosting etc. Does anybody here have any experience or opinions with using any particular site, or any warnings (file size limits, bandwidth limits etc)?

I like photobucket a lot. If you intend to keep and manage your pics, then it's perfect. If you only want to show the link to a few people and be done with it, then Imageshack is good.

Need cheering up?

ImageShack is only good because its well known, 95% of the time its way too slow and there are adds everywhere, Photobucket is more professional and handy, not to mention the fastest out there

Failure is not an Option. It comes bundled with Windows.
