    Online Image storage.

    Who uses what ?

    I've never been a fan of online image storage but i guess it would make a few things easier.

    What is considered the best online storage(Free).

    I would like to get some opinions of people what they use and are they happy.

    It's not that i can't look for my self but i'm just easy(Lazy) going when it comes to that.

    Thanks people.

    Hello

    This site has it's own free image storage which can be accessed here: http://www.ausphotography.net.au/gallery/

    If you prefer another online storage place, try www.photobucket.com
    That is a very popular site for online storage and is a very good one in my opinion.

    Cheers

    hi there.
    theres quite a few options to choose from.
    some people like to use www.photobucket.com , where you can set up a free account. You can also use something like www.imageshack.us for quick uploads, as you dont need an account with them to upload pictures.
    I like to use www.flickr.com however, as its very easy and neat (you can use a program from your desktop to upload and categorise the pics for upload).
    Alternatively once you get over 100 posts you can upload pics to the forums gallery.
    Im sure theres a few other options out there, these are just the ones that came to my head at the moment.
    cheers

    I'm a big photo bucket user. But a word of warning.

    While their service appears to be Spyware/malware free, some of the companies that run ads on the site (especially where you upload your piccies) are not as clean. I inadvertently clicked one of the links while trying to upload some piccies (when using the upload dialog, highlight the pic that you want to upload & hit open. Dont double click on it!!). The site that I hit installed some rubbishy software on my PC, which took quite a few goes to get rid of.

    BUT, apart from that, I find them quite good

    Apart from basic storage on this forum I use flickr, it is free but limited, I pay $20.00 a year for a premium membership for ease of use of various sets for better organisation. I used photobucket originally but it threw untold spam my way for soooooo long so I wont use it again for fear of it re-occuring. Most of my pix just gets burned onto disc as well in full resolution for future editing etc.
