Default Be Different: Host Your Photos Online Elsewhere

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/point_and_click_8_photo_hosting_websites_compared' target='_blank'>http://www.maximumpc.com/article/fe...bsites_compared</a><br /><br /></div><p>&nbsp;</p><p><em>"Today, you can't swing a 500mm lens without hitting a business that wants nothing more than to store your pics.&nbsp;The question is: Do you dare stray from the familiar entities? We can't give you that answer, but we can tell you that truly excellent sites, perhaps just right for you, do indeed exist in other corners of the Web. And it's our intention here to point you in some of those directions."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1322750542.usr15670.jpg" /></em></p><p>MaximumPC takes a look at some other online photo hosting services, and a few look quite interesting. That said, 500px (pictured above) reminds me why I don't like the popularity contests that follow such services. Luckily Smugmug is on the list, and if you can afford the fees, I think it is the best of the lot. As always, I am curious to know of new photo hosts. Does anyone have their own favourite photo hosting service that is not mentioned in the article?</p>

Whilst not a service offering that perhaps has the same feature set, I use SkyDrive. The recent improvements make sharing content a lot easier, even with people that don't have Live IDs, and 25GB for free is really nice. I keep hoping that, particularly with Windows 8 making more of a push for "cloud services", MS are going to increase that 25GB at some point ...
