    I would like to know what people are using for hosting their images. I set up a Flickr account and uploaded some pics, but I don't think that the site is that good. I also heard some negative comments from some friends. I noticed in the sticky "How to post pictures ..." there is SmugMug or PhotoBucket. Just wondering what people recommend.

    Thanks

    Mypicturetown.com is hosted by Nikon and gives you 2Gs free space, they are giving 20G free untill april and then will charge for the 20G. It doesn't offer anyediting that I've found but it's great so far for what I use it for.

    I use Flickr and haven't had any problems with it. Seems like a pretty popular site and from the view counts my photos are getting a little exposure - pardon the pun.

    SmugMug for the most control. You can customize the look. You can upload full size images. You can move up to a "Pro" account and set prices for your pictures. Most others do not have these features. It is one of the more expensive sites. About $40-$60 bucks a year depending on the account, but it's the best I've seen.
    Here is my SmugMug site

    I've hosted my own pictures with my own server for maximum quality. I have used Photobucket but I didnt like it too much.

    yeah you can put flickr images in your posts and link to them.


    Just a question to smugmug users: do you feel that your photos get a lot of exposure? Have you sold any through smugmug? How much do you get for each one bought (%)?

    I list several programs on my blog at http://www.TheCreativesCorner.com

    Be careful with places that use flash to create a site as search engines can't see flash and won't list your pages on search engines unless you have text on the page as well.

    Have Fun,
    Jeff
