I have had two image hosting sites fail on me in the past couple of weeks. First villagephotos.com decided to start charging a fee. Then I tried freepgs.com and they just crashed. The trouble is this is happening while I have auctions going.

Can anyone recommend a good, FREE image hosting site? I have two auctions ending in the next two days and they are currently pictureless.

Thanks!

re: free webhosting for pics

Your ISP provider is best = it's very reliable. being that's it's big. Every ISP has somekind of webspace for thier members. I've used AOL, earthlink.net and now my own site. to host my auction pics .. I do not know who your internet service provider is but you must have some free webspace. visit thier website or call thier customer support number for full details.

Ok found one it's webshots.com's auction photo hosting - the free one has some limits.

or more complicated create a regular community photo album and link images directly to your auction .. it's not exactly a auction photo but heck it holds pictures on thier server. Just copy and past image into frontpage and it automatically copies the image location or open up the source code to find where they store image and paste image link into your auction.

Note in long run it's actually easier and saves more time to have your own webspace I have a folder in my mainsite titled auctions and that's where I put all my images. I use readyhosting.com and at $99 a year with 500mb storage and unlimited traffice I still came out on winning end :)



most freesites have a a block that so no outside sites can "borrow" the images.
