Online Image Storage

Post by michnet76 on Thu Jun 10, 2010 2:56 am

First topic message reminder :

If you're like me and like to have lots of your photo's online for a multitude of uses such as posting on this forum and others, or simply sending someone a link to a pic by email then an online image storage is the way to go, I initially used my ISP's website space that they give you with an internet connection but found it messy to work with FTP, especially if I was away from home- and I soon used up the 50mb allocation! Then I started using facebooks album feature but they compress and shrink photo's too drastically and everyone in your friends list can see what you're up too as well.

Then I discovered imageshack for myself the other week... they don't seem to compress images overly much or reduce them in size, there appears to be no limit and you can hotlink directly to the image like this and not have it open up in a window with a heap of other stuff or adverts:

You don't even need to sign up to upload pics, but I did so I can manage them and go back and find the link again down the track.

I read through their FAQ's and TOS and they seem pretty fair, no porn or copyrighted stuff etc, they will keep the image up to a year if there's no activity with it and there's a 50mb limit per image with unlimited images. If hotlinking directly to the image there is a bandwidth cap but for what I do I doubt that'll ever be an issue.

And no I'm not associated with them in anyway, except as a 'so far' satisfied user trying out to find a decent online image storage facility!

Oh and it must be said, for those new to putting images online; never put something up that you'll regret or don't want reproduced elsewhere... once it's online it's a free for all for anyone to download it and do what they will with it. You may feel it's copyrighted but that won't stop someone on the other side of the world from doing who knows what with it!!

If anyone else has another reliable online image storage solution they use please post it here for us all to check out too!!
