Photo hosting

Postby 68383 » Sat Nov 09, 2013 9:16 am

Any recommendations on good photo hosting sites? Apparently Fotki has lost hundreds of my pictures in a bunch of albums I had created. :evil:

I have used photobucket for over 5 years now and I've been very happy with them. Other people I know love imageshack. Both have good reputations for reliable hosting. If neither of those look good to you, let me know and I'll give you some other options...

Fotki replied saying, "As stated on our blog, we are migrating servers and expect photos to be restored in a couple of weeks.

... Thanks so much. That helps when you want to access an album today. And like I read their blog!

Yeah, this has been a pretty big deal for another site I visit that has almost every single member's picture hosted there and paid for some sort of special plan with them. Members are all up in arms because their pictures are nowhere to be found and their links are broken. Meanwhile, I've got all mine in my photobucket, safe and sound! :D

Yeah, but do I take the time to duplicate albums at photobucket if fotki's supposed to make them available again?

Dave, just FYI, photobucket is currently doing a promo on their new mobile app. Set up an account and then set up the app and you'll get 8GB of free storage. Unbeatable deal on the best photo host right there.

And the nice part is, from then on, you can auto-upload your pictures right from your phone to your photobucket if you wish. I have several photobucket accounts and set them all up with this offer. Totally worth it!

Thanks. I signed up a few weeks ago and started putting my pictures there.

I've now got 4 accounts, each with 10GB of storage. No more looking for a photo host!
