Hi guys which site have you found to be the best for uploading photos onto? I've looked a Shutterfly and Webshots both seem pretty good. Any others?

Also will i simply be able to upload photos through USB or will I have to download software first from the website (which i doubt is allowed on public computers)

Any thoughts? Advice?

Hi,
Have you looked at www.gypsyjournal.com?
It's good for keeping your story on and you can put your photos on too.

If a PC has Windows XP on it, it should just detect your digital camera as an extra drive and you'll be able to drag and drop your pictures.
But if it's older and has Windows 98 on, then you'll probably need to download software which, as you say, is unlikely to be allowed - but it's always worth asking.

What about Travellerspoint??? :)

If you're looking to upload photos in their original state and size and you snap in very high res, you'll probably be looking at paid deals since you'll probably be looking at 50 MB plus for a decent set of shots.

Otherwise, the hottest thing online these days in that area is Flickr. Offers 10 MB free upload bandwidth per month with a 5 MB per photo limit. As far as I can tell their free account is limitless when it comes to actual space. Their pro account offers original state photos.

Very nice indeed....

I have been travelling for 2 months now and at start of the trip found it easy to find places to allow me to hook up my USB cable to download pictures on my travel site. Hawaii and LA were good but since then, in all other parts of America it was difficult. We tried many internet cafes, libraries and everything!! Sometimes i wanted to go up to someone using a laptop at Starbucks and ask them to use it!

I am now in England and have relatives here and friends so are using home computers, so no problems.

I really want to buy a laptop computer!!

Quoting Sam:

Otherwise, the hottest thing online these days in that area is Flickr. Offers 10 MB free upload bandwidth per month with a 5 MB per photo limit.

And from Flickr, you can blog your photo directly. Just add your blogs in your Flickr account, and any photo you upload there can be published to your blog.

I've just started using pbase. They do offer a free introductory service but it only costs about 25 US dollars a year for 200mb of space.

The site looks really nice with no advertising or pop ups getting in the way and it's easy to customise your galleries and make them look cool.

It's also a really active online photography community with some really great galleries to draw inspiration from.
