I've been storing my photos online at KodakGallery
for a few years now, when it was first called Ofoto. All free. Or so i thought. I got an email from them a couple of weeks ago that said I only get free storage if i make a purchase once a year. Now i have purchased from them in the past. Once, an archive cd, i've also ordered a few prints from photos other people have stored in their galleries, and i don't remember if i've received a similar email before that prompted me to purchase any of these. Anyway i have far too many photos and galleries and it would take forever to re-upload them all to a new site not to mention all my links that would have to change. Just a warning for anyone that's using them, then. They didn't say there had to be a minimum purchase so i suppose if you use them, you could order a few prints and get away with that. Their prices aren't unreasonable although the archive cd price is pretty high. I have a good burner and do my own now though have so many photos that i have to put travel photos on one cd and the other photos on another one and then i make a backup cd of my files and other miscellanea on a third. I think it's time to start thinking about a dvd burner lol
I keep photos on Fotopic.net as well but there's a limit to how many galleries you can have for a free user. There's also LJ which has a photo section for paid users. There are lots of free galleries out there. I've used a few in the past including Webshots and Yahoo. Well i'll bite the bullet and order something or other off Kodakgallery, grudgingly. I guess they have to make their money somehow and in the past, two different companies i used both went tits up although at least they gave fair warning and i managed to save the photos in their appointed galleries to my hard drive. I use photobucket to store photos i want to link to LJ, on a temporary basis.
I also have an account at Snapfish because i had to in order to view some shared albums. Anyone use that? Do they make you purchase stuff to keep your photos there for "free"? I've used Yahoo photos and i'm not keen on their format and i avoid using microsoft anything if i can help it.
Edited: I do have my own website and webspace through my isp and there are photos there, just not set up in nice galleries. I could i suppose do that but my space is still limited.
