Free Image Hosts

Do you need a place to store and host the photos and other images that you want to put on your blog? Here are some of the most frequently used free image hosts, and any limitations on them.

Photobucket - You can store both images and video clips here. Free accounts have a 1GB and 10,000 image storage limit, and a 10GB monthly bandwidth limit.

ImageShack - You can store an unlimited number of images. Each image you upload must be less than 1.5 megabytes in size.

Picasa - Google's image hosting service. They also have image management software that works very well. Free accounts have a file storage limit of 250MB. If you have a Blogger blog, Picasa allows you to add a photo to your blog very easily, but clicking on the "Blog This" button.

Flickr - Flickr is a photo storage site as well as a community site where people share photos. With a free Flickr account, you can you can upload 100MB worth of photos each calendar month (5MB per photo) but you can only see your 200 most recent images. Your old photos are not removed from Flickr, only from the list of your photos. If you have blogged a photo and it no longer appears in your list, it will still appear on your blog, and the photo's Flickr page will still work just fine.

These are the most common image hosting sites. You can check out a list of other image hosting sites here.
