Where do you store your images online?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by omarma, Sep 12, 2008.

  1. I'm pulling mine from flicr to post here but they are a bit smaller than most that I see here. Is there a better place? Or a better way? Or...is this the proper size?

  2. Hi- I think it is all personal preference as to where you store/display your images on-line. Flickr is very popular- I personally use pBase and lots of others use Photobucket, Smugmug etc.
    The general guideline for posting here is that a photo with a length of 800 pixels on the long side is a good compromise between time required to download (not everyone has super-fast internet connections) and large enough size for viewing.
    Have fun and keep shooting

    Hi Irma you can find several previous and very similar ("which is best" and similar) discussions with a suitable search here mostly you get what you pay for, if it's "free" then be aware the site is probably sharing data for a price, of course with companies (Flickr as an example, until they were then bought by one such company, google are another such service), whilst the more reputable specialist image hosting sites such a PBase, SmugMug and similar were setup to offer a service "to photographers by photographers" so are more popular with savvy folks as they offer a superb service at a really good cost, with very high online availability and fewer privacy issues.

    As David says, most images posted here are designed to be a good compromise between visual size (in pixels) and file size (in bytes) and 800 to 900 pixels with a file size of up to 300 KBytes is about the biggest that is considered "friendly", although the more skillful at post-processing or lower-detail subjects can be shared with much smaller (bytes) file sizes. The days of asking for 750px or smaller on the long side images are thankfully gone most places, as most photographers also have larger screen sizes now even in rural areas ;-)

    I've noticed recently that the photos I upload to Flickr look different than how they look in CS3 or when I upload them to my BetterPhoto account. They look flatter, not sure why.
  5. I like pbase.
    Simple to navigate, functional interface, easy to manage, (generally) reliable, cheap. Works for me.

    I use Zenfolio for my web site and Photobucket for other stuff.
  8. To post one online forums

    To post one online forums I use Photobucket ... easy real easy plus almost unlimited once you get a pro account which is like $25 a year :biggrin:

    I would have joined Flickr a long time ago since it is a great photog community but you need a yahoo e-mail address to join and I refuse to create a new e-mail addy... I have already too many :rolleyes:
