So you have a website. And you dont want to waste too much hard disk space on your host for images that are part of your articles, users or your website UI. Rather you would like to store these images somewhere else but you are afraid from loosing them. 

You cannot waste bunch of images that build up your website's content, so in this text we will give you some of websites where you can store your images without worrying about loosing them and you can of course reference them with your <img src> tag. Below you have one of the best image storage websites, and their offers for you to store your content images in a separate network which will save you a lot of disk space.

1. Flickr

Flickr, one of the most popular photo sharing sites on the web, is one of the most community oriented photo sharing sites available. If community is what you’re looking for, Flickr is the top choice. It’s essentially the Facebook of photo sharing sites.

Not only is Flickr’s community aspects fantastic, it also has some of the best features and most affordable pricing in comparison to most other options.

2. SmugMug

For professionals, it doesn’t get much better than SmugMug. Although more expensive than most other options, you’ll certainly get your money’s worth with the features and flexibility available. 

SmugMug also has somewhat of a community, but nothing to the degree of Flickr. SmugMug’s strong points are in it’s features for those more serious about photography.

picasa-web albums

Picasa Web Albums, offered by Google, is a simple and clean way to store and share you photos with integration with other Google apps such as Gmail and Google Maps. You won’t get the flexibility of a site like SmugMug but the features offered will be plenty for most people.

Picasa uses Google Storage, which is shared among your Google based accounts—a nice feature. Google Storage is also very affordable with options scaling all the way up to 16TB!

  • Price: Free / $5+ per year (Google Storage)

5. Zenfolio

zenfolioAnother favorite among photography enthusiasts, Zenfolio offers great features for the price, including Google Analytics integration, support for all color spaces and great options for selling your photos. 

Unfortunately Zenfolio doesn’t offer video upload capabilities but it wouldn’t surprise me if it was added in the near future. Zenfolio is definitely a strong competitor for professional photographers.

  • Price: Basic: $25 / Unlimited: $50 / Premium: $100
  • Storage: Basic: 2GB + 1GB for every year, Unlimited and Premium: Unlimited
  • Max Image Size: 24MB
