    I've apparently almost maxed out my photobucket account, and I really don't want to pay money for more storage space. So, what is another good photo storage/sharing site that I could start utilizing? I honestly don't know of any!

    (ETA: Wow. Shortest thread post ever.)

    Yep, Flickr is the one I use when I'm not using my own hosting.

    I use Flickr, Imgur, DeviantArt and TinyPic depending on what I want to do with the images.

    Tinypic makes them terrible quality, but if it's a cell phone pic that I'm just posting here, I don't care. It's also nice for screenshots.

    Imgur has a limit, but it's the easiest one to use if I'm going to be putting it on Reddit.

    Flickr lets you keep them high-quality, but there's also a lot of image theft because when people look for pictures, that's the first place they go, and Wikimedia Commons has bots that collect images from Flickr, and they stay in Wikimeda Commons even if you change the licensing on the image...and odds are most people using the images don't actually go to the source and make sure it's still under creative commons.

    I don't use Deviant Art much anymore, but I used to use it for more artsy/professional photos. Not cell phone snapshots, just images I felt were either really nice to begin with, or that I put a lot of effort into editing. It's kind of a hassle posting there, which is why I don't use it much anymore. But it is a really good place to get feedback/critiques.

    I always thought Imgur was a pain in the arse myself. :p

    I started out using it for Reddit since it seemed to be the place to post from, but now I just use Flickr too. Simple upload, click image, and take address from the address bar works easier for me. :eek:

    I had that happen with one of my photobucket accounts and ended up just making a new account then. I probably have thousands of photos on there and don't think I'm close to full.

    I've never been able to get the hang of Flickr! Plus I like the photobucket app and being able to export directly from iPhoto.
