Image Hosting with Hit Counter

Thanks to everyone who suggested image-oriented LJs. I have not had time to look at all of them yet, but I will work through them and add the ones that look like they will bring the most visual spice to my friends list.

On a related note, does anyone know of a free image hosting service that allows you to see how many times a particular image has been viewed?

Do you use an image hosting service that you really like and think I should take a look at?

We have our own domain for image hosting, but Mani uses this program (upon recommendation of vyoma) http://gallery.menalto.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=index

Haven't had too much good experience with free image hosting, though free websites (like geocities) tend to be pretty decent and can hold a fair amount of real estate.

try flickr ..

http://www.flickr.com

it provides a count of views as well as allowing other members of flickr to comment on the photos.

you can upload 10 mb of images per month, from what i know of your posting style, if you are ressurrecting TOTD, it'll eat that up pretty quick, unless you optimize the heck out of the images ...

but
1) it is free
2) it takes image hosting to a new level, letting you add images from a certain user, or fitting a certain description, to an XML feed. This way you can see every pic someone uploads of oh, I don't know, bees,
just as an example.

This has come in handy for me. I was able to search for "tsunami" as an image tag on the day of the tsunami, and see some very interesting images well before they hit the evening news.

Besides Vyoma I didn't know right off of any pictoral blog, with the exception of my own (a collection of fantasy art and political art/manipulations) so I didn't post in your last entry.

I host my images from webspace I own, from Dreamhost. I've been using them for years and found them to be pretty cheap, fast and very reliable. Even for a guy who writes online comics and posts lots of stuff in hidden files for friends (like the time I posted the Timothy Leary comic) the space available even in the cheaper plans is quite great, including bandwith.

So, I reccomend Dreamhost. Refer me if you make that choice, ok?

I'm sure you can find "Free" webspace out there, but I've never heard anything really good. The 'free' servers always rely on the definition that you can't argue that you got less than what you paid for.

Hi! I found you in the foundphotos community, and I noticed that you live in Fayetteville. My boyfriend and I are moving to Eureka Springs in August, and I thought I would add you. I hope you don't mind!
