    Image Hosting

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    From the very beginning, pictures formed a base for our culture. Cavemen drew their lives on cave walls; later, many artists created breathtaking works. Pictures were, are, and will always be a source of inspiration and tranquility depending on your state of mind. Images have rapidly taken over computers and the Internet as well, but what is the best way to share them with the rest of the world?

    Well, the options are quite numerous; of course, we have MySpace, Flickr, and other social networking sites, but this article will not be focusing on those. Today, I will present to you sites that are dedicated to image hosting, sites that do not require you to implicate yourself in a lasting relationship. They simply do what they're asked to do: host your images and provide you with a multitude of ways to use them.

    You can use image hosting at any time just for hosting your pictures. You can then send your friends the link to look at your image without the annoying interfaces that other picture sharing sites may have; they'll see only the plain picture. It's very helpful for frequent forum visitors who need a place to host their creations, regardless of whether it's a picture taken with a camera or one made in Photoshop requiring extensive picture format support.

    Your best information source about image hosting is forums, particularly the ones that are widely known. They're endless; I'm eager to see what would happen if all forums disappear (yeah right, that's science fiction). They're also interactive, so you can ask your questions and (usually) get responses from experts.

    For people who maintain a site or blog, image hosting may seem to be a great option because it allows them to reduce their own site's load on its own server. It will also reduce traffic, which is important if you are paying for every byte of traffic through your server. Of course, this brings up a few questions. Will these image hosting sites delete your photos? What happens in that case? These questions will be answered in this article. I will present a few points to consider when choosing the image hosting site that is best for you.

    I believe in the following proverb: a picture is worth more than a thousand of words. Since nearly all forums offer to display your hosted images, why not use that picture? The question remains of where to host your images so you'll experience minimal headaches. This article will try to suggest a couple of places,  present what should you look for when you are in pursuit of one that suits your needs and also explain how to use them through a series of picture. Enjoy!
