I would like to post a picture on the "what do you picture everyone looking like" forum. However, the only pictures I have are saved on my computer. Since I really don't want to sign up for webspace for just using it one time, do you think any of you could host one picture for me?

Thanks

FYI to anyone using Villagephotos.com to host images, if you haven't been there lately you might notice you're images are broken. Villagephotos.com is no longer allowing remote-linking for free users, which is why I'm using one of the loaded images until I get a chance to change that. *growl*

Right now, I am using Photobucket for my free image hosting.

I am afraid, however, that its only a matter of time before Photobucket and many other free image hosting sites will begin to charge. After they get a fair number of users, that is. Many image hosting services see this business practice as a new way to make a lot of money since the rise of ebay. I am beginning to be resigned to fact that I am going to have to pay someday for image hosting. Already some free web hosting sites have, by the most part, gone away.

It would probably be cheaper to actually get (domain) hosting for that, rather than pay for an image service. There are cheap domain hosts out there who'll do that for like $5/mo, which is probably around the same amount a lot of image hosting places charge.

I use my domain to host alot of images and I pay only 1,5$/month for it (+ a minimum setup-fee). It's hosted by B-One.Net and is pretty basic but it works great... Check their site out if you want a domain for minimum dineros!
