Where to find free photo hosting sites

There are two types of free photo hosting sites. Some photo hosts, such as Flickr, offer free basic services, but they offer an option to upgrade for a fee. Other photo hosts, such as Kodak and Shutterfly, will allow you to have web albums and share your best photos, but you may be expected to make annual purchases from your photo album. This article will show you where to find photo hosting sites.

Online photo storage

Flickr, Photobucket, and Morguefile will all host your photos, so they are perfect for posting your photos online and sharing them. Flickr is the best site for photo hosting because the company, owned by Yahoo, offers some protections with regards to photograph storage. You can choose to make your photos visible to everyone, to groups, or keep them private. You can allow them to be downloaded or not, and Flickr will let you choose the sort of license available. Creative Commons license With Flickr, you can do more than just store photos. You can protect your photos with a Creative Commons license, which means that anyone can download the photos, but you can refine the license so that people can or cannot modify them or use them for commercial re-use. Monetising photo hosting Flickr also offers a chance to monetise your photo hosting. They have a partnership with Getty Images so that you can possibly sell your photos.
Photo storage is free on Flickr, but you are limited by how many photos you can upload a day unless you purchase a professional plan. You can import your photos from Picasa or other photo storage albums on your computer.

Kodak and photo printing sites

If you print your photos from a photo sharing site, Boots, Kodak, and Shutterfly will offer free photo storage. Unlike other photo websites, photo storage from stores are generally used for personal use, which can include sharing photos with friends through online albums and Facebook. You can usually have unlimited storage of photos, but there can be limits on how many photos you can upload at a time. For example, Kodak will let you upload 400 photos at a time, and then, the next 400 photos can be uploaded after the first 400 are done.
Photo coupon codes Although, picture storage is free on these sites, sometimes, they require you to buy photos annually if you have many photos that you are storing online.
You should look for photo coupon codes online before you order prints.
Most photo shop sites have coupons so that you can get free photos when you order them during different promotions, and those free purchases will count towards your annual photo purchase.
