Good picture hosting website (in Off-topic)

Hi, I have some pictures I want to have hosted somewhere.

Now I know of the existence of the ones I'll mention below but I want to know which one is really good and reliable. My demands are:
- free of charge
- images should stay uploaded until I remove them (if possible)
- images should be able to be at least a few mega pixels in size

Anyway these 2 I know of:
Imageshack.com
Tinypic.com

flickr or photobucket are also good ones, not sure how they work for size but i have never had an image removed. they are free as well.

@novice: From the imgur FAQ:

The maximum non-animated file size you can upload is 10MB. However, if the image is over 1MB then it will automatically be compressed or resized to 1MB, for better viewing on the net. The maximum animated file size (both GIF and PNG) is 2MB.

Resizes to 1MB o.O didn't know of that before.

Perhaps google picasa would be a good one for me, especially since I've got a google phone as well... :)

hmm, picasa works with a downloaded program which uploads images. Not really the convenience I'd want...

Do not use Photobucket if you're going to have a large number of people viewing the images. I always, always see "bandwidth exceeded" in place of Photobucket images if they are anything more than privately viewed.

http://picasaweb.google.com

There you can upload with a web browser. Never used that program.

I should have checked... wonder if it's the same deal for the pro accounts

Guardian October 19 2010 10:46 AM EDT

http://min.us/ makes uploading pics easy with a simple drag and drop model. Not sure of the file size limit though.

Especially if you work in IT and the fat guy across the room wonders about your preferences.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 19 2010 11:17 AM EDT

Hey I'm that fat guy across the room in IT and I don't care a thing about anyones preferences!
