Well, i think it's just that simple question. How do i upload my images to the web. I can't find it somewhere. Though, i have actually found some websites which allows me to actually upload my images at their websites, and then use it for my own websites. Really appreciate your help out there!

What do you mean? You said you already found websites that allow you to upload images. What exactly is your problem then?

I think webjoker means a PHP script in his/her own website to upload images to his own directories ...

Oh sorry, i was unclear. Well, the problem is that i'm not sure if it's safe to upload images on a websites like this if i want to use it on my website: http://www.freeimagehosting.net/ So i wonder if there are any other ways it is possible for me to take? Any other coding or something? Now i hope you understand what i mean? :)

To get your own web site online (to which you can then upload your content, including images, via FTP), you register your unique URL address (for a fee) and then you obtain a host/server to serve up your web site (for a fee).

Tripod.com used to offer good FREE hosting. Webs.com currently has File Manager you can use to upload your own content to their FREE hosting. In these instances, they offer a sub-domain setup (e.g., http://yourName.tripod.com or http://yourName.webs.com).

There are others. I'm not familiar with the one you referenced. I'm sure most are "SAFE." When you upload anything to the WWW (World Wide Web) it's up for grabs.

If you upload images to anyone else's site, you're relying on them to make them
available when you need them. Not usually a problem, but something to think about.

Also, on your web page, if it has to go out and grab images from another site, that
takes longer to do, slowing down your site.

If you're talking about uploading images and someone else copying them ... well,
that's the price you pay for using the internet. If you're concerned about that,
you'll have to watermark or damage your photos so people won't want to use them.

Since you can have your own website and domain name for only $40 per year,
there's no reason you couldn't just get your own website. Lots of hosts to choose
from ... keep in mind that "free webhosts" are not really free. They cripple the
features you need or splash some ads, or do something that will make you mad.

It is a free service:thumbsup:
I have found this site useful especially while I was learning PHP and MySQL.
Some things can't be tested locally even with WAMP...
