What Photo Hosting Sites Do You Use??

ERIC originally wrote:I want to get a list of all of the major photo hosting sites out there so I can create a poll that lists as many as possible. One of the biggest questions I'm emailed and PM'd is "what photo hosting sites do you suggest?" Well, I'm not that familiar with any of them since I usually host my own sites and album scripts; so I need your help to compile the list.

Please post below the sites you use.

UPDATE: See here

Let's see... there's Webshots, Flickr, Photobucket,, PBase, Picturetrail, Smugmug, etc., there's a lot of them. Flickr is my favorite right now, and it's free, and Photobucket is free too, as is Webshots, although they all have upgraded options for a fee.

Hi Eric! I use and I've not had any problems. Posting pictures and creating albums is pretty easy for me, so that says a lot :)

Webshots suks! :\ sorry, just how I feel about it

IF I could transfer all my photos (7 accounts x 3000 photos) I would go with SmugMug. They recently upgraded to 5,000 photos for premium members, so I can add another 2,000 to each album. I'm almost at 5,000 on my 2nd album.

I use Webshots and agree with Snowy. But I don't have the time or desire to move my albums. I am just going to hope that some day they improve enough to make things tolerable.

Ok, I'm moving over to SmugMug. I saved the photos I used on webshots WITH captions, so once uploaded, its easy to copy. I just need time now to wait for the uploading. I'll be uploading one album each morning before work, then I can work of copying the captions later.

New to HST and saw many different photo hosting sites by reading topics here. Discovered Picasa2 by Google. They allow 250mb for free. Quality seems pretty good and Google is at the forefront of technology innovations.

I use Picasa, but am not all that excited about the web side. I am a huge fan of the PC side. I love the way it organizes your photos on the PC side.
You can also go to, purchase the low end package and setup your own photo album.

Think we've had enough suggestions now that I can change this thread into a poll. You can vote for up to three, and change your vote if for some reason you feel differently down the road.

Thanks for the input, gang.

Bulk Upload and Host Images for Free at Imagebam

By Jason Fitzpatrick

If you're looking for a quick and dirty free image host for fast image sharing, Imagebam makes it extremely easy to get your photos out there.


You can upload as many images as you want—the only restriction is 3MB per file and the images must be in JPG, GIF, or PNG format. Alternately, you can bulk upload by sending a zip file, limited to 100 files and 100MB total size. Besides your uploaded images, there is a BBCode for inserting the image into forums, an HTML link, a direct link, and a link that will remove the image—an interesting, helpful take on privacy and file deletion. If you're looking for more functionality, free registration gives you access to image management tools, as well as a flash-based bulk uploading tool.
