    Which image hosting site can you trust for the long run?

    I have a portion of my site that allows users to post certain images on their own site and I want to use an image host like TinyPic. Is there a more trustworthy (free) site to ensure that the images won't disappear in the next 2 years or more? I constantly see ImageShack placeholders where the accounts has exceeded bandwidth.

    Personally for things like this I use googles Picasa Web Albums for this sort of stuff, for free you get 1GB of storage(shred between a Gmail, google docs as well as Picasa Web Albums), I don't think google will take it out of service within the next two years unless they move it completely onto google pluss. It is extremely reliable because it is from google.

    However, remember to keep backups of the files in case it ever does go out of service.

    I may go with that, it does seem trustworthy. Or at least if it goes away I'm sure Google will move the files to new servers or something.

    picasa web albums is a good option , but would also suggest an image hosting website,

    this was suggested by a friend of mine a couple of months ago , just have a free account and have your pictures safe guarded as long as you wish ,

    thankyou

    You should use all seo channels to promote your image hosting website only need to keep in mind that you have to concentrate on those sites where generally visitors go for images .
