Google. Yahoo. If you have an Amazon Prime account, they offer unlimited uploads for free. If you simply want to share them here, use the “img” button and upload them to AWS for free for us to see.

IMHO – Hosting sites have to earn money, there is no such thing as permanent photo storage/hosting for free.

I put the ‘free’ picture hosting sites into one of three categories:

1) You have zero to minimal control of any content once posted, and they do not last forever
(example imgur)

2) The are free now, but will not be free in year or so when the advertising does not pay the bills.
(example Photo bucket)

3) You must have a subscription/email/device, which means it is not really free unless size of files is small.
(examples – Apple Cloud, Mickysoft OneDrive, Google Drive, DropBox, etc, etc.)

Have lost a ton of online pictures over the years due free sites disappearing, or changing rules. Always keep backup(s) at home. My apologies if this is depressing information.

Cheers!
