here's a nice, quick, and easy image hosting site:

Yeah, thats what i host all of mine on <_< But really, dont worry abut the bandidth limit when hosting with Photobucket because i read it was 500mb and even though this site gets 1000000 of visitors i doubt a gif or jpg file would go over (unless its over 450x150 id say)

great :) now we have a increasing number of image hosts which people can use to save their bandwidth.

If you have an account with graphics design,, etc and design for customers or friends, I reccomend you don't host their files for show and tell using your account. As they may hotlink your image and further increase your bandwidth use. I have talked to a few people who have done this and exceeded their bandwidth limit. So it is probably smart to use the above image hosts or another host for instances such as this.

I am using ImageShack and it hasnt been using up my BW.
Thats kool. Go for ImageShask and you wont have to loose your BW to ppl signing in from SEs.

Also, please do not use image links directly off an external website. Do not hotlink images from other website because in that case, the web site owner of that site is going to suffer. I had an issue a month back, a guy from an external site was blaming Xisto for his BW drain. That site was not hosted with Xisto but some user had hotlinked the image. Also, it is better that members who have cool graphics on their site, use the image hotlinking option in the cpanel to protect their own graphic files.

I personally was thinking about putting all of the pictures needed for my site on an external host...Either another free host that has unmetered bandwith or an image hosting service...Any ideas for one I could use without getting either side angry? :P

I use photobucket to host all my images.. I haven't had a problem with it yet. I've never tried imageshack so I don't know if its any better or worse, but I do know that photobucket has never caused me much of a problem :P
