    www.fastpictures.com is ok, but you can only upload one pic at a time. When you have resized them to some 800x600 pixels and saved them at "8", loading is quick.

    www.photobucket.com is also good, you can load more than one pic at a time, and when you watch that you always save your web-friendly pics at "8", it does not randomly make them smaller, either.

    just kidding... I don't give out any accounts on that one ;)

    But you could consider to set up your own space, it does not cost that much ...

    http://www.webshots.com/ is so far my favorite. The free version of flickr has a very small monthly bandwidth and you can only have 3 different sets. On webshots you can upload 1,000 for free and 100 more every month you use them and you can make many many galleries. I make links from my myspace to the webshots pages, 1 for each album. I really like the desktop application they have which makes uploading a breeze. That is more for showing off your pictures, if you want to just host to get the img tags I think photobucket does fine, I use both. Photobucket it for personal and the webshots is like my website when connected to the myspace.

    I love flickr, but I bought the pro package... it's only 25 dollars...

    It's got a really great method of getting your pictures "around."

    I'm on FLickr as A Pro but when I tested the web link it doesn't paste the pic in just a link.

    I wasn't so keen on this.

    Did you also know you can download images at the large size from Flickr? That is images that arnt yours etc

    What about PBASE? They have a pretty good service. I've seen people put a lot of custom code on their site. Some folks have even linked a shopping cart to it. I think I paid 25.00 for 900 megs of storage. Considering I have not promoted my site I still managed to get over 4k hits in about 8 months.

    I recommend photobucket also. You get 1GB free storage with a free account. Photobucket does resize images but It's not a problem for me since I'm not going to be posting full sized photos on the web anytime soon.
