    I want to rent webspace to store pics and videos into galleries. Right now I am using webshots.com and I think I am getting ripped for paying $40 per year for their services (although, I am very satisified with their service, I am just looking for alternatives).

    I want to know what other people use. I mainly want to organize my photos into albums and be able to send the links to those albums to friends to share.

    What do you use?

    For a reference, here is a link to my webshots account:

    This is the special acct I set up for wedding pics and related:

    This is my own acct I use for various outtings and trips:

    oh yeah, I know nothing about web design, html, or how to create website. Even geocities might be a challenge for me. (although I am sure I could figure it out if I tried)

    Webshots was an easy solution to what I was looking for, which is why I went with it.

    Ultimately, I would like to upload my pics to a server and have them viewed to a special website (that I may make in the future), with links to services that viewers may order prints online. (thru ofoto or webshots or something)

    I like http://www.pbase.com

    I think it costs $12/year for 100 MB of space with additional space available pretty cheap. It is very easy to use, everything is done via forms, uploading your pictures & adding descriptions etc. It automatically creates the thumbnails etc.

    There is also pre-set templates to start from.

    Check out my online gallery to get an idea

    Yeah pbase rocks. Its acutally 23 a year for 100mb and it really is easy to use. Really its only about 2 bucks a month and it hasn't gone down in the year that I have been on it.

    Here is my gallery:

    I have been using http://www.powweb.com for both of my sites for about 2 years now. $7.77 a month, 1 gig storage, 150 gig transfer per month.

    It's been great.
