Free photo hosting sites with menus

Unread post by bucky » Thu Apr 03, 2008 8:51 am

Hi all.

I have a flickr account and need to organize my stuff into groups on there but it only allows three groups.

Do any of the other free sites allow an unlimited amount(Or more than flickr) of groupings, perhaps even with sub groups.

Only the sun rises for free, Bucky. (Dutch proverb) :lol:

I think the flickr pro accounts are really good value though.


If you resize your pictures, you could try Photobucket for unlimited sets.

Photobucket.com does, but is stuffed full with advertising. It does keep it free, but ...

Personally I much prefer the (not free) zenfolio.com option, have a look here. I have only 1 group so far, but working on a pano group to go there as well. The computer is busy.... :wink:
Not posting much here anymore, but the photo's you can follow here There is plenty there.

Bucky, for 25 USD a year, giving you unlimited space, I agree with Gwen on a Flickr Pro account.
It is actually very easy to organize your photos when you have a pro account….you can create a collection that then again contains any number of sets.
Example….my collection of SA birds (still work in process :redface: ): Birds of SA

Thanks all for the help.

I managed to get my stuff sorted on photobucket (Horrid) .

I have my own web site, but needed to upload 1500 photos of a shoot I did recently lol, so nothing much would work and my site does not have that capacity!

As a matter of interest, when doing the flickr pro thing can you make a sub menu inside a menu ?
That would work well, and I prefer there hosting without a bizillion adds.

Zooomr.com was giving away free Pro for life accounts sometime back, to bloggers. I got one of the accounts and now I have unlimited upload capacity (Bandwidth) and unlimited storage there. Also, I bought my own webspace as well for as little as $40 per anum. Works just well for me.

That really is an impressive website you have, Bucky. 8)

Bucky, that is what the “collections” and "sets" are, I tried to show that with the link to my Birds of SA collocation. :D You can have numerous collections and each collection can contain sets, and each set can again have numerous photos….for example: you can have a Kruger Collection that will contain sets of ”Birds”, “Mammals” etc.

News flash….seems Flickr has today enabled video sharing for their pro members….so you can now have all your video and photos under one account that can be viewed in your photo and video stream. :dance: You can also share your videos with groups….like the different SANParks groups.
For the birders, the Birds of Southern Africa group is a great place to share and view video or photos of SA birds.

Thanks for posting that Jumbo.

I was just looking for the video hosts thread on the forum, but it seems to have vanished.

There's already a "Funny Monkey in Dustbin" video in the KNP group. :lol:

@Bucky: In addition to Jumbo's bird collection also have a look at Gerhard Theron's Flickr site. Click on the Birds (Aves) collection second from the top on the right of the page

Okay, just one last plug. :lol: Our own Candy's Style, who also makes great use of collections and sets.

/me thinks Candice is going places with her photography. ;-)

I have just found http://drop.io which is free up to 100MB and there is no need to set up an account. I just uploaded this unusual sighting at the Satara Cam in 5 minutes and that included reading the instructions on how to do it. It's not reall designed as a permanent store but for a quick way to share information.

Our lucky USA forumites can also use it so send and receive faxes FOC.

With Flickr you can only upload 200 photos. After that they disable some of the photos or you have to upgrade and pay. That is why you will notice that some of the photos on the forum says "Flickr Photo not available".

I started to use Photobucket as they have unlimited uploads. That means you can upload all your photos of all your trips...

My suggestion is to rather try and resolve the issue with your Photobucket access / account.

Good Luck and remember to share those photos.
