You can have a quick look at my own Flickr page - http://www.flickr.com/photos/petzeninc/

You can have ur photos in size range 75*75 upto 3008*2000

Right here at travellerspoint? Go to "My Photos" under Control Panel.

We do resize photos for displaying in the galleries, but the original photo also remains completely untouched and accessible to you. (Look for the "download original" link in your photo gallery.)

Is TP photo storage totally free, or are they like Flickr? I was under the impression that Flickr was totally free until I uploaded quite a bit and they held me hostage until I paid up!

Travellerspoint is totally and completely free. The only limit which exists is a monthly limit to the amount of upload bandwidth you can use. This starts off at 25MB per calendar month (enough to upload ~10 full-size 6 megapixel photos, or ~100 photos resized to 800 by 600 (actually I think this even is 50MB nowadays, but the FAQ says 25MB, so let's assume that)), but if you participate on the site enough to get a "Full Member" title, the limit goes up to 100MB per month, and as a Respected Member, you get 200MB per month (enough for ~80 full-size 6 megapixel photos, or ~800 (!) resized photos).
The limit stays at its high point too, even if you'd lose the "Respected Member" title again. You can check the limit at the photo upload screen, which has a box in the upper right corner showing a percentage of how much you've used this calendar month, and what the total monthly limit is.

Remember, this is a monthly limit; photos you've uploaded in previous months don't matter to it anymore, so you can effectively keep uploading more photos indefinitely. There are people here who have uploaded literally thousands of photos over the course of many months (for example jl98584 has 3636 photos in her gallery at present), and all of them are and will always remain available and accessible.
