  1. I think Yahoo Photos is being closed down in favour of Flickr, I’m not too sure though.

    Imageshack is my personal favorite.

  2. Mjuboy,
    You are right, Yahoo Photos is being closed down. I have written about it in the post also. 🙂

  3. goldcoaster,
    Thanks for the find. Imagevenue looks good.

  4. Good List! DivShare is also providing image hosting with gallery support. The best think I like about them is they don’t have much annoying ads!!!

  5. Nice list man . I love photo bucket along with flickr . I think it is a bit underrated .

  6. You have posted nice list nirmal but i think now competition is getting tough everyday , new site like shareapic , which pays their users om CPM rates when thier uploaded pic hasbeen seen . Many Indians and other country users are uploading 100 pic daily on them .

  7. Atul,
    You are right, there is lot of competition in this area and I have just listed the big fishes here. 🙂

  8. no one has mentioned http://www.imagebin.eu/ , really fast to upload images!

  9. Dave, as said service is fast enough. But I hate “hosted on ImageBin.eu” on every image that i host.

  10. Dave,
    Imagebin.eu is really fast, but it showing “Hosted on Imagebin.eu” on the photos. 😥 People will be reluctant to add photos when there is something like this.
