    best place to upload photos?

    I am looking for the best place for posting RAGBRAI pictures for my bike club. In the past I had collected all the photos on CD's compiled them and then sent out disks. It is a lot of work, and it would be a lot easier on me if everyone could just post to one account. I need a sight that will not delete the pictures after a year if we don't buy some prints. Is there one? It will be several hundred photos, so capacity is a factor too.

    I think photobucket would work


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    If you go Flickr, pony up the 20 bucks and get a pro account. I like Flickr better than Picasa, but YMMV.

    Re: best place to upload photos?

    Webshots - Photo Sharing, Free Wallpaper and Free Screensavers I have used this free service for years. You can upload 10,000 photos before you have to pay a dime. They do not delete photos ever. If you want to check it out, type iowa_wildcat into the search bar on WEBSHOTS and you will see my collection there. Yes, I am one of these idiots that does landscape photography as a hobby and use WEBSHOTS as backup storage for my photos.

    Re: best place to upload photos?

    Just make sure you back them up somewhere else. Back in 2000 I loaded a bunch of pictures on some photo storage web site and they went bust.

    Re: best place to upload photos?

    Also, and this might not be a concern for you at all, but make sure that no matter what that you dont put pics on a site like the ones mentioned in this thread that you don't want the entire world to see. All of these sites are extremely easy for anyone to get in to even if it is "locked" or "private".

    I'm going to echo everyone who said picasa. It is great FREE software, good editing tools, excellent organization tools and one touch uploading to the net for sharing. You can download here: Picasa 3: Free download from Google

    I'm a semi-professional photographer and Flickr is the one for me. You can upload photos for free, though there is a limit to the number per month. I pay the $2/month and I can upload unlimited number of photos of any size. This is very convenient for me as I can download the photos (as can your friends/family if you wish) anywhere & anytime I want to.

    Re: best place to upload photos?

    I like Picasa Web Albums but the one thing I don't like is that there doesn't seem to be an easy way to post pictures on a message board like CF by using a link. Am I missing something? The "link to this photo" doesn't work for me.








    Oh wait, i figured it out. You have to select "image only" and then select "Embed image".
