Where do you host, store and link your photos from?

Hi All,

New here, so not sure if this is the correct place to ask this. Did a search and nothing really came up. Just wondering where folks are storing,hosting, linking their pictures online?

Not a professional (obviously) just hobby dude looking for options. Have used webshots in the past and Face Book too, basically looking for options and flexibly.

What I'd like to do is:
Be able to store pix securely
Ability to invite guests to view, download my pix, with a password.
Ability to link pictures to various forums
Pix size up to 12 Mb per pix

suggestions or links on where to look appreciated.

Happy Holidays,

jrc

I use Photo and image hosting, free photo galleries, photo editing | Photobucket

Not sure if they have a individual file size limitation, but worth checking out.

I believe Picasa can do all that.

I use my web server for that kind of thing, which is one way: but, Dropbox is a lot more usable and handy for most people that want to store and share pictures(lot's of other kinds of files supported too).

Photobucket for me.
Ads are annoying but some decent tools for online editing.

Maybe just check or call your local ISP you use and they may have just such options you can use and that are all already included with your current billing fees and options.

A few years ago, I looked at several sites. The Terms of Service, for most of them, give THEM the right to use YOUR shot anyway they want. Flickr was the only exception I found, so I went with them.

Flickr for family and friends (with Flickr ID's), Dropbox for other.

Dropbox integrates nicely with your OS and lets you create randomized temporary links you can share with non-dropbox users.

Phorgot about Photobucket, They've updated since I was last there.
They now have a desktop app that you can download, How convenient.
