What is Image Hosting?

Image hosting is a bit different than building a Web page to share with family and friends or making an online photo album. With image hosting, you download photos to a specific Web site for storage of your photos. Image hosting is primarily used by people who wish to store photos online without all the captioning or blogging that goes along with other online photo sharing sites.

Many people choose image hosting as a way to transfer a picture from a Web site to a community forum, a blog or even via instant messenger when chatting with a friend or loved on. With free image hosting, you can transfer your photos from your digital camera onto the Web site. Normally you are able to download only one photo at a time and usually there is a size limit involved. If the picture is too big, the download will not occur.
