In a bucket

"How would sir like it?"
"In a bucket!"

I've been very happy with Flickr up until now, but I seem to have come across a hitherto unknown limitation of Flickr: I can only have 200 photos in the photo stream on free accounts. The ones that fall off the end don't seem to be accessible at all. :( wynther_knight suggested Photobucket which seems to have a 10,000 image limit, but I'm not entirely happy with it: It doesn't let me include captions except as part of a slideshow and I can't keep track of it as an archive or share it with the flexibility that Flickr gives me. (Yes, I know I'm fussy. ;) ) Does anyone know of another photo sharing service I could try out?

EDIT: How foolish of me. Of course, I already rely on Google for most of my digital life so why not let them do my photos for me too? There's now support for Mac OS so I have no excuse. I don't know yet if it will meet all my needs but if it has the Google brand on it it probably will. :)

I recommend getting a pro account on Flickr. :)

I'm trying to be a cheapskate but that is an option. Unfortunately I'll have to keep paying every year to keep my photos accessible.

*noddles* Yeah, that's the downside...

Yep, Google Picasa Web seems to mostly work. I have a Flickr account as well and use either randomly. Picasa is easier since I import photos from the memory card using it already.

LiveJournal has a picture/video hosting feature called ScrapBook. The free-with-advertising Plus accounts get 1 GB of storage, Paid accounts get 2 Gigs (upgradable to 10 Gigs). Rumor has it LJ will be selling Permanent accounts again shortly, probably for $150 a pop; they get 10 Gigs of storage.

I have about 100 pictures in my Scrapbook, and am using only about 13 Megs.

Thanks for the heads up; if LJ do offer that again I'd definitely want to go for it this time.

(Anonymous): Picasa Is OK

I've been using Picasa for a bit now, and it seems to work fine for me. Don't have the $$ to invest in Flickr, although I hear people love it. Lot's of flexibility with Picasa.
