Hyspex has been up and down more times than pair of drawers on the Green, however they've killed the free accounts (unless you already have one) and gone fee-based.

Don't know if I'd go with them, as they were appealing for contributions to make £60 or so to buy a server.

----

On a better note, I thought I'd done remarkably well in clearing some space from my Photobucket account a few weeks ago, as the free space climbed rapidly as I worked away.

However the truth is that they've doubled the space and upped the bandwidth of free accounts :)

Not just Yahoo!, you'll find the same copyrighting with almost any hosting service that doesn't simply provide anonymous hosting of any pic you upload to their servers.

While they're not hosts, you'll find similar terms if you offer any pics to the BBC for example.

It basically means that once you submit your pics to them, they are licensed by you to re-use them. It doesn't (and probably can't as far as I can see) affect your copyright as the owner of the original image. However, the terms basically mean that they can re-use the image you submit as they wish, without having to ask your permission as the copyright holder.

Regardless of their terms, you, as the copyright holder of the original ALWAYS retain the copyright unless you actively assign it or sell it to someone else.

(Yes, I did swallow the copyright legislation one quiet day :) )

you could try http://beta.zooomr.com/

Haven't read the Ts&Cs so don't know if they're more favourable than flickr's

No mention of Picasa / Picasaweb from Google?

Picasa is the desktop software used for organising pics on your pc while Picasaweb is their alternative to Flickr.

The desktop software is very good.
Picasaweb is free with 2GB of storage and no bandwidth restrictions as far as I can see. although the tagging and community facilities of Picasaweb aren't quite in the same league as Flickr at the moment.
this week i have mostly been listening to...

Image Storage

Postby robertpool » Sun Sep 16, 2007 10:43 am

Flickr for me. Unlimited uploads on the pro account (aprox £12.50 /year). I like the idea of the various image sizes available when viewing or downloading. All my photos are of Glasgow and Clydebank, almost 4500 of them. (Mainly Glasgow Harbour Development from Nov 2004 to Aug 2007) There is also shots of the city centre. Drumchapel, Partick, Botanic Gardens refit and many more...go on have a peek. ::):

images are broken into sets for easy viewing.

I love the Picasa application - and should really use the Picasa 'web' as it's so easy to upload, but there's just something about Flickr that makes it all so appealing.

If you don't like the license terms (etc) why don't you get some hosting (and domain) of your own?

I've largely switched from flickr to Zenfolio now, mainly because I think that Zenfolio is a lot more professional looking, and because there's more control over how your site looks, rather than being tied to the chronological display as on flickr. It doesn't have the same community aspects however.
