Free Hosting Suggestions

Postby PurpleXVI » Tue Sep 20, 2005 4:52 pm would be my first suggestion for anyone looking for free image hosting. They'll crop down overly large images, but you have a pretty big amount of hosting, last I checked it was still free and your account and survive a decent amount of bandwidth per month.

If the cropping is too draconian, I imagine that one could split one's image into several, perhaps quartering or halving it, and posting them side-by-side or in a square.

EDIT: I imagined that anyone with free hosting suggestions could post them here.

photobucket only resizes pics over 250KB. that should be more than enough for most large, well-compressed images (i.e. don't upload bitmaps! ever! bitmaps are bad for teh internetz)

for the lazy:, I think that's what most people on forums tend to use

ImageShack can automatically set up a thumbnail for large pictures, so people get a rough idea of what it's like, then click it to see it in its full bandwidth-consuming glory. Ah, the pleasure of unnecessarily massive images...

If it's suitable for reuse on a forum (ie. pwn3d, lol, you can use it as a reply), I suggest uloading it to my good man W3bbo's ForumsPile, of which I am now a moderator-ish being.

W3bbo did it for me. The Spamusement is now up, and I'm sorry if it didn't live up to your expectations. I'm not sorry if you don't get it, though.

And now W3bbo is deleting my Spamusements. :(

I'll do something about it when anybody cares.

Streamload allows up to 25 gigs of storage for a free account. They can also accomodate very large files.

Doctor Cheesius, Imgplace doesn't seem to actually upload files. Or at least, when I try to choose a file, I get a little window that says the request failed. Is there some reason why this should happen?

Photobucket is no longer a free hosting suggestion, at least for posting images on other sites such as this one. (As a result, any comics that haven't been saved may never be seen again. At least, until I get broadband -- someday, maybe -- and can download the ones that aren't on my current computer and upload them somewhere else.)

Joining them is still free. Having your images there is still free. (At least until the day they say, "Pay us or we delete all your uploads/close your account!") I guess you might be able to link to the Photobucket page that has the image, but I'm not sure.

Oh, update: They seem to have rolled back... to "If you have a free account with us, people can again see the images here... with our logo watermarked on top." So yeah, you can see my comics again, just not in their original form.
