    OK - I'm with the free 'Flickr' photo sharing site - but recently I've been getting a message as shown below
    So I'm guessing that when I reach over 200 then I won't be able to look/edit/delete any older pictures but will they will still be 'avaliable' to be seen on the Fourms I've posted them to ???

    Well I'm a cheapskate so don't want to pay a yearly fee for a 'unlimited' storage account - so I was wondering what the temper's use to hold their pictures to show in the forums

    I know of 'Flickr','Photobox' and 'Tinypic' - but what other's are there (preferably free) and most importantly - are there any 'limits' or 'restrictions' like Flickr has (the 200 picture limit)?? - I've been looking at 'Tinypic' and apart from the 90 days limit for non-account pictures I can't see any other limits mentioned

    ImageShack

    That's what I use. You can make an account if you want to, but you can also just upload them without one.

    EDIT: It doesn't have a deletion date for non-account uploading, it's free, and I'm pretty sure it has unlimited storage for members (Either way, but as a member you can go back to your uploads easily).

    I use the GBAtemp Picture Upload Service as linked in the first post by Overlord, and I also use Photobucket.

    I use http://tinypic.com/ for 99.9% of my pictures. I'm fond of their built in photo color/edit thing.

    I use image shack if by some random chance my picture I need is in the 2.5-5MB range.

    If I did need to upload picture, i would probably use facebook. Made the account, might as well make it useful.

    I use Imageshack because it works [​IMG] Also to the guy above, I don't recommend using the Facebook picture uploader because it automatically converts them to jpeg (Quality turns worse, especially bad for pixelart) and animated gifs don't work.

    Quite a few to choose from isn't there.....

    I actually forgot about the GBATemp one... although I think I would actually NOT use that unless I was supplying any pic etc for tutorials that I do here since those would be exclusively GBATemp pics...

    For the 'fun stuff' I think I'd prefer having it elsewhere
    (Tinypic looks 'promising' as it seems I can have a semi-customized profile webaddress)

    haha, i thought the thread was asking generally what type of pics do we use for our avatars.

    As for me, i just use photobucket or tinypic.

    Facebook would be great since they literally have no limitations(that's what I know)

    I just get the URL of that image and post it in either my sig or avatar

    Facebook resizes pics and turns them into jpeg.

    I use Photobucket
