Good photo hosting site?
« on: April 24, 2012, 02:56:26 PM »
I used to host my jpgs, etc. on my Cox web space site but they've since closed that down. What do you guys recommend as a good photo hosting site that is easy to use, free and provides a decent amount of storage?

I'd like to be able to post screen shots and the like.

I use Photobucket.

And some Facebook, which exports pictures to a Kodak picture frame my folks have on their network.

For "drop off" photo's to link to elsewhere, I use Photobucket.

For any family private stuff for sharing I use Google Photo's. Used to use Flickr, but they were a pain in arse in the end.

I use ImageShack. It's free as long as yer pics are less than 10MB in size.

Photobucket with the plugin for Firefox is great!

I know I already voted, but I'll +1 the Firefox plugin. I think Command Tent turned me on to it and it rocks.

Actually, I've been having trouble with my Firefox lately and I've mostly switch to Chrome. It's fast, secure, and has many cool features. It *does not*, however, have a photobucket plugin. Man oh man do I miss it. Until Chrome gets its own PB widgit I'll still be using FF at least part time.

I've ditched FFfor Chrome as well. I was just getting way to many strange situations and lock-ups. The funny thing is with each new update it seemed to get worse ! I don't find Chrome as fast in some instances, but so far it has been reliable.

About 6 months ago I switched to FF from IE after having the same problems you had with FF.  I haven't had any problems so far and am wondering what took me so long to switch.
