Photo Storage for forum posting.

Thought maybe folks would have some good advice as to what free online photo storage site would be best if I want to be able to link photo's to message boards like this one.

Need high capacity and the ability to post fairly large jpegs if i wish.

and use *[/img]xxxx* to make those pics appear in things like a trip report.

So post your favorites and why ..

thanks for any input :)

They can all be used to link photos, so you can take that out of the question. Really you're just looking for an online photo-hoster. There's a ton out there, so you're going to get a lot of opinions. Basically I'd try one and stick with it unless there's something about it you dislike that you can find elsewhere.

I use Picasa a lot. It's Google, so you get a free 1 gig account for every gmail address you have. I'm also a big Google fan and like how it ties into my gmail/homepage/phone/blogs, etc. If you want more than a gig (for any one account) you have to pay, but it's only like $5 a year for 20 gig. Their interface is really good, and actually a decent low-grade photo editor. The display is just simple folders, if you want more fancy look elsewhere. They give you the option to DL in different sizes.

Phanfare: I use this for my travel albums. You can get far more complex in having folders within folders, sidebar navigators, colors, texts, etc. Some people make some really fancy pages.

Flickr: I believe you're limited on how much you DL per month, but there's no top cap. I could be wrong. I don't use it much, but it's a popular one. This is by far your best choice if you're looking for a lot of people to make comments on all your pics "OMG. I LOVE THAT! That's so awesome. Hey, check out my page here xxxxxxx"

Really appreciate the info. Sounds like Picasa would be simplest and most functional. I'll give that a shot..Maybe get a little TR up this weekend with some nice pics.

Thanks :)
