What photo hosting site do you prefer?
« on: June 01, 2012, 03:11:12 PM »
Like the tittle says.
Which one do you prefer and why?

I have been using Photobucket since dont know how long ago. :P
But i dont use the features of the site. Merely to store and to link to forums.

But lately i find their image displayed is always rotated in a wrong way.
I would have the right image on my pc only to find out when i post the pic is rotated to left or right. Hence i gotta try to set it again.

Any better sites to recommend?

using http://picasa.google.com/ most of the time. 10 GB free allocation. Started using in 2008. I don't upload my photos automatically. I make a copy of the original photos and resize it to 800+ by 600+ pixel. Only then I upload it to picasa. This way, it will take a long time before you used up your allocation.

why not host the photos yourself with some gallery template on wordpress or joomla and your own hosting? Can have own domain name somemore
