After 8 days of pulling my hair out to solve one problem ](*,) now I need to dump Picasa and find another place to put my photos. So my problem is ether my pics do not show on a form but I can see them or they disappear all together. ](*,)
I would like to get some suggestions on what is out there and what you guys use that is better than Picasa??

My experience with Imageshack is 95% excellent. On very rare occasions did an image not show. It's been a FREE solid image host for many years.

Just be careful with some of these image hosting sites. If your content is even boarder line copyright for the image, they will delete the image on you without telling you. You other pictures are still there.

There are some danger FREE image hosts out there. Sure, they will host your pics, but where ever they are, they have bots tagged with them. Bots can re-direct a person elsewhere or spy on internet stuff.

It's good that you are asking around. And if someone posts here with less than 10 postings to try some other place, be warned of the dangers. Else, many of the long time and trusted users here can point you to plenty more good sites. :)

Only when they nuke a photo for breaking the rules. Some motivational posters I had upped got nuked even though they were in a private album.

I picked Photobucket over Imageshack and Picasa because of the speed factor. I've also never had an image removed for excess bandwidth consumption either, aka Imageshack.
