I've not used any site other than photobucket, but some folks seem to use Flikr or Picasa?

Hi Shelley, have you tried googledrive? My computer is not good after falling during one of our big quakes and I was worried that it would crash and I would lose a lot of my pictures. My son stored them all on googledrive and they are now perfectly safe.

Re: storing pics online


thanks for your suggestions, i have ditched PB as a storage facility.
My husband has mentioned googledrive also, will have a look.
I'm going to get an external hard drive or maybe a pen drive if i can get one big enough, just to make sure i dont lose the pics. when you think you've lost them it makes you realise how important they are.

I know these posts are old (jan) BUT I can't post pix on here cause PB doesn't work for me. SO
Googledrive or snapfish? They still work?

Re: storing pics online


There is a very easy free way to store photos and files online.

Open a free yahoo account and post the photos and files to yourself.

Unlimited storage space and so easy. I have done this for years. Even if your computer crashes the photos are there in your account whatever computer you have.

Flickr - is good

Whilst not unlimited - the free account is so huge it may as well be.

Also - you can store your full resolution pics.
