    I've a free FlickR account for holding a very limited number of photos for showing test shots (mostly for sharing on this forum :smile:).

    Otherwise I don't store online at all...

    I want to be able to share some photo collections with family/friends and hide from public but some I may want to post publicly.

    I have had my own domain since 2000. GoDaddy is my current hosting provider and my site runs on their Linux servers. I use Gallery 2 for my photo galleries. I also have an account on photobucket that I use when I want anonymity, such as photos I post for Ebay auctions or similar (edit: free account). I have used smugmug in the past when I was trying to drum up some event oriented photo business and I needed an easy e-commerce solution, and it did a nice job at that.

    I use Smugmug for long term storage of stuff (although my send to smugmug program is acting uP) and a free flickr account for things I want to quickly share.

    FlickR can do that; you can start a free account and upgrade to a paid account if you want more storage space. You can specify family/friends or public, etc., access levels.

    Remember to read the Terms of Service for whatever service you choose, they ain't all equal.

    I have a free Flickr account mostly for a commentary group which I help moderate and to be able to share photos here. I also have a free Pixoto account. Pixoto is a fun, quick way of getting feedback on your photos. :)

    Flicker Pro and Drop box plus the occasional upload to Costco for printing or share so family members can print plus added redundancy.

    I host my photos using a paid service ,as free has many hidden limitations.To be economical I chose Thewebpole.com since they provide hosting with cheap rates and it is easier for me to upload and use the photos.

    I have a paid Flickr account that I've been using for many years. I also used to use PBase but the service became too unreliable so I let my account there expire.

    Free Flickr and Photobucket,both easy to use and when I was looking around they were the most iPad friendly.
