Your Image Hosting Suggestions

I've been using PhotoBucket and ImageShack for quite a few years. I'm currently looking for another backup image host. Securitybreach from the All Things Linux forums suggested ImageBam, but I'm having troubles registering there. It won't accept my username choices.I've found a few other sites that host images, but their allowed limits are pretty minimal. Some look like pretty cheesy sites, too. I'm kinda' reluctant to sign up for a site that doesn't even give you their "About Us" information anywhere on the site. What is your favorite image hosting site?

ImageBam worked right off the bat for me. What did you do? :angry:

I'm sure you want a free site Eric. But when you get a job, have quite a few pay checks under your belt and can breath easier, have a look at http://www.walagata.com/index.phpIt was free when I first started using the site back in 2005. I've been on the $9.99/year plan since Feb. 2006 and been extremely happy. The site was down once as far as I can remember and to thank his customers, we received 60 days free.

No matter what username I type in, it tells me "Please pick a proper nick name" or some such baloney. I'm not using anything but letters and numbers, no special characters.

No. I never got to login. It wouldn't let me register. :angry:
Crappy. I have been registered for awhile now. Registering allows an Album but not much else. I dunno give it a day or so then try again I guess. Still a good image hosting site though.Thanks

Nope. And this is the only place where I use my name as my username. I'm not sure how that happened. Everywhere else I go by "vtel57". :angry:

Try it without registering and see if it works.I didn't need to register. I uploaded three files. Here's the first oned9b19533874802.gifI browsed and when I had the three files clicked Family and clicked the upload link and I got my pictures and links.

Try http://dropfiles.netIt's not a dedicated image site, you can upload lots of different file types. I've used it for a while and its been very reliable. You may have to make your own thumbnails, but hot linking works fine.Here's one I prepared earlier:cautionary.png

I finally found my long list of free file storage sites. It has over 80 sites listed. I'll edit the list as I go through and try and post down sides.This isn't necessarily for hotlinking, as you said you wanted it as backup storage.1. http://4shared.com/ I've used this and it is good BUT you must login in every 30 days or your files are deleted. I remember I did get an email "reminder" but I didn't login and my images were gone so I decided this wasn't the best option for me.2. http://www.flickr.com/ if you have photos I currently use this. You can share or make your photos private. Downside: you need to create a Yahoo account because yahoo currently owns this.3. http://www.badongo.com/ never used. Inactive files are deleted after 90 days. I'm not sure what constitutes inactive.

Dropfiles works, Sunrat. Thanks. :)
B) It's simple, basic and fast, that's why I like it. Also been around for quite a while so reliable, and i don't think they delete any files if you're inactive. Good for images or online document storage/sharing.And no ads! :) :hysterical:

I also like Walagata for it's clean no-ads look. You can also upload any type of file.http://file.walagata.com/w/mysticx/1GKvalk.JPGClickable thumbs:mysticx_Brickthumbs20090402214253.jpgModels_-_Pusti_Nas_U_DiscoNEW.gifIf anyone wants a hot Serbian music vid let me know 1smokin.gif
