    Default recommend free web hosting for sharing photo ...

    Most online photo album don't allow hotlinking.
    Any other places I can use for sharing photo on forum?

    Thanks a million!

    You can try using www.digitalstar.com.

    It allowed hotlinking previously, not sure if it is the same now.

    imagine if u are the site owner that give your site free to public to allow free image hosting, and yet people don't visit your site often but wanna use your site as a image dump and hot link it to other site.

    Hot linking is really bad for any image hosting server, as it takes up lots of the server's bandwidth.

    Suggest u pay a small amount and host at clubsnap server.

    melnjes,
    thanks for the suggestion. will check them out.

    Kho King,
    I can understand hotlinking is a bad practice. however, I intend to use it on occassion when I need just to show 1 or 2 photos for ease of explaination. not intended for heavy usage. usually I invite my friends to online album if I'm sharing the whole lot

    Is clubsnap having hosting services meh. I just check the frontpage, didn't have any furthur information on that, how's the cost like? thanks!

    off course a little ...

    Hotlinking means linking the photo that you have uploaded to a certain web host and link it to wherever you wanna show your photo.

    www.picturecd.com

    just that you would rather get the software, CompuPic, to upload the photos by batches. Otherwise, it will be an irriating one by one upload.
