    Question Photo file storage and sharing online sites??

    Hey guys, it is cold and kinda of wintry looking here in southern Illinois today. Not a good day for riding! So, since I am stuck inside here at the ol' computer, I thought I would throw out these questions for some discussion.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it

    1. What photo file sharing site/company are you using??
    2. Why do you like what you are currently using??
    3. Is it easy to use as far as uploading/downloading photos??
    4. Could someone with limited computer skills find it easy to learn??
    5. Does the tutorial show you a good step by step process??
    6. What does the file service cost? Free? Monthly charge? Annual charge?

    I really need to sign up for some file sharing service but, not sure which one to get as there are several. I enjoy putting together my trip reports or photo essays as I like to call 'em but, those small thumbnail photos I post in my trip reports just don't cut it. So asking you guys these questions for real world answers (and any other thoughts on this matter) will really help me make a decision and it may help others as well.
    What say ye?

    Thanks!!
    Roger

    OK, i use Photobucket.com
    Its free and somewhat intuitive to use. I've used it for 6 yrs.
    You can drag and drop your photos to upload to the site.
    I'm sure there is tutorial but I have never used it.
    Just brute force my way thru the applicaton.

    I use photoshop too.... My problem with it (if I use it correctly) is that it is EXTREMELY slow for me. I'm not a computer whiz though. Maybe I do stuff wrong with my pics...

    I use photobucket too. It is quirky. But I have about 500 pictures on it.

    free I am at 87% so now they ask me to pay, to add more space.
    I have had it 6--7 years free....so have not paid yet.

    I go to the picture, click under it to highlight it, then control C then go to
    my post on Motocampers, and do control V it pastes it there.

    It is flaky sometimes but it always works for me, and free..

    LOL This thread has kinda lost momentum. I had hoped to get a few more responses on some different photo file sharing.
    So far 3 outa 3 are using Photobucket. Anyone else??

    I'm using Photobucket, but as soon as I find some free time, I'm getting all my stuff off, and closing the account. I think it changed hands recently and now it's unbearably slow, plus I get a email, almost daily, wanting me to upgrade or buy some worthless crap.

    my two cents,
