On your own blog/site, a free site, a paid site?
I use SmugMug at $5/month.
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 Photium. They are a good provider, helpful and reliable.
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.
Paid flickr account and some on paid Photobucket account.
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'm not sure that this is what I want but, man, there are some awesome photographers here: 500px is Photography
I have both Flickr Pro and Zenfolio accounts. Zenfolio for presentation and Flickr for the social aspect.
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.
started with free Flicker account an moved to paid last month.
Smugmug Pro image and custom site hosting
I use photobucket for when I want to share photo's online but for longterm storage I use a free Windows Skydrive account.
