    nice share dude..
    I haven’t tried any of the above mentioned sites.. but now i’m gonna take a chance & btw my rly for the hosting service will be self hosted images. I agree it will save the disk space, one should also consider the loading speed of the images.

    Rajesh@ Thanks for adding these 2. The reason why i did not mentioned these and more image hosting websites is to start a discussion. Like you add these 2, similarly other commentators will add more and so on.
    Narendran@ You can try imageshack.us that is great.

    I am currently using https://ImgPile.com simply because it offers better interface and supports SSL by default. 🙂
    Also, I would like to report a typo error – It should be Flickr.com, instead of Flicker.com at #6.
    Cheers for the great list.

    As of November 2015, Imageshack is no longer free. Photobucket has become so obnoxiously inundated with ads that it no longer functions unless you pay for their premium service as well. In other words, Photobucket is no longer free either….

    I really don’t know the current state of things, but I lost hundreds of photos free hosted in imageshack.us when they unadvisedly decided to change their policies. Years of work lost forever, no reliability there
