View Full Version : Free Image Host wanted
I was hoping to discover the best free no frills no spam image host. I have 6-10 images I want to share nothing huge or permanent needed. Feedback would be great.

I may be misunderstanding what you want. Have you tried the following?
They both allow albums to be setup to share with others and also both parties allowed to make prints! (I prefer adorama for better prices)

Webshots (http://www.webshots.com/) is pretty decent if all you want to do is put some photos on the web for others to view in their browsers. Free accounts available. You would give your friends/family a web address like http://community.webshots.com/user/yourName and they could go to your gallery to view the pix. Is that kinda what you're talking about?
I was hoping for a thumbnail view or a link to an image. I don't want it set up that others must sift through an entire album but rather a link for looking at a particular image.

Send me your email address and I will send you a shared album of mine so that you can see what it looks like. You will see thumbnails and when you click on the image, you will get a larger version.
I am trying to link images "individually" as I need them in forums such as this one. I am not interested in an album being avaliable to look through. I want the images to have individual links, not 1 link for many images.

Do you have an ISP? Does your ISP account not come with free "web space"? Is there a reason you can't just put some JPEGs in a folder within that space and link to them as need be?
I have yet to pay a penny towards additional online storage space, having acquired some with my earthlink dialup and an additional batch with my verizon DSL account.
Since you don't need for your clients to be able to browse through an entire album, you don't even need to set up HTML pages with navigation arrows for them!

If pictures are under 1MB, you could use Image Shack (www.imageshack.us). Also, a free account at www.fastmail.fm has 1MB of file storage.
Ahunter3 I can barely remain online as it is with my ISP service. Furthermore my ISP sold my personal info to solicitors, they are an unloyal company. I know this because the account has incorrect info for my name, I was going to correct them but then I started to get 5 calls a day asking for this fictitious person, forget it. They are also a monopoly. Not to mention my pop mail account has no stable confirmations, every great once in awhile I get one. I don't think they actually send all my mail requests through. Its like they delete them when no confirmation comes back and I rarely receive a confirmation which is automated from the receiving site to send back to me. I rarely get them.
So although theoretically you are correct, but I have as little interaction with RCN as humanly possible. I have no respect for this company but I am landlocked at the moment. RCN sucks.

Most ISP's as well as yahoo and the like don't allow hotlinking images for forums, etc.
I'll echo the imageshack.us idea, I've heard photobucket is decent for those type of things as well.

I do a bit of miniature wargaming and constantly post new models and paint jobs on various forums. Photobucket (http://www.photobucket.com) works great for me - fast, easy, reliable. :cool: ImageShack seems to be the most popular, though.
My experience with online photo hosts isn't too vast, however, since I usually just FTP the photos to one of my domains. It is quicker, however, to use Photobucket if I don't already have my FTP client running (I'm still on a Windows PC for now).

I can't believe I nor anyone else didn't mention, but you could always host the images on your own machine using the built in Apache server. They wouldn't be availabe 24/7 unless the machine's always on, but it would provide you with a free alternative. Do a search here for web sharing and dynds.org for ideas on how to set it up. I've got one running on my machine as we speak.

That would work..
Assuming of course your ISP allows HTTP traffic requests inbound...
My ISP is RCN and I am lucky to stay online. I have to avoid that option at any cost. Read my last post.:(
Just came across a really quick and easy image host, no registration... Just passing the link along... http://www.imagevenue.com/
