Hi All - looking to get a web diary started for a trip out to South America. As ever there are a multitude of different suppliers all claiming the best. Are there any above the rest that you would recommend?
Need image upload facilities as well with generous space within the account.
Many thanks in advance

You get 5MB as a respected member and 10mb as a travel guru. I've scanned images that are over 30MB each. You just have to resize them for the web and this site.

A Full member could get around could get around 65 images at 3kb/each.

That's true of most cameras these days but in reality you shouldn't be uploading that kind of photos to the web.... it would take quite a while if you're talking about a lot of photos over a broadband connection, letalone over a slower connection while you're travelling!

General rule of thumb is that 100 kb is the max for uploaded photos... most websites prefer to stick to under 50 kb.

If it's to relieve the camera of space, then I'd recommend some kind of hard drive to store the photos on, or burning cd's along the way.
