    the features i want are 1.unlimited storage 2.unlimited bandwidth usage 3.if the image is resized it should not be less than 1600 x 900 4.all the regular features such as hotlinking should be present 5. ability to create albums, groups or categories etc 6. all these features should be available in a free account

    i was earlier using imageshack.us but it resized my large images(1600 x 900) to 1024 x 768....then i started using imgx.org but
    last night some of my images in a forum were displaying this message- "this file has had too many views or exceeded the limits of usage"...the thumbnail was not visible.

    when i tried to open imgx.org i got this message- Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (11)....sonow i want to switchto a different website...please suggest..
    thank you.

    i did consider photobucket but i see a lot of - "Upgrade to Pro Today Bandwidth exceeded" message on a lot of forums...i don't want this to happen as i frequently upload a large number of images in multiple forums....how about tinypic? is it good enough?

    EDIT: i just registered a free account in photobucket & uploaded a 1680 x 1050 image of size 165KB......but the image got resized to 1024 x 640...i don't want that to happen...so please suggest me some other options. thank you.

    EDIT again : tried tinypic.com..it resized the same image to 1600 x 1000...this is acceptable...it also has all the features i want & is quite user friendly(unlike photobucket which had a lot of features strewn all over the place)...so i guess i'm sticking to tinypic for now...if anyone has any other suggestions please tell me.

    @himadari: Why you want that large image to be posted. While most of us can only view an image of height 600-700 px max without scorlling. After that heigth we have to scroll the window. And not viewing any image at a single time decreases its effect. Same thing applies for width. I had seen in most forums they allow a fixed size and after that you have to scroll up and down.

    At imageshack I had posted images of 2000 x 600 and these are displayed without any resizing.

    Small size open quickly and viewer don't have to wait.

    since i am a student of 3d animation i render a lot of images at high resolutions..mostly at 1680 x 1050 or 1600 x900...i want all the details in my render to be clearly visible...hence the requirements:oops:

    BTW, isn't anyone here using imgx.org? i get this error message when i try to open the website- Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (11) if anyone else is getting the same error message..please let me know...thank you.

    yeah....i agree tinypic is really user friendly...& the limit of 1600x1000 is quite acceptable..i think i will use it..

    EDIT: tried opening imgx.org & this time it opened without any errors...all my images in various forums have started to show up again...i might keep on using it now....you guys may want to try it..it offers everything unlimited :razz:

    ^ strange. I posted something about tinypic too, seems to have mysteriously disappeared. I use it because I don't have to register, and it still lists images by ip. Not closing the thread though. like it when spambots come along and bump old threads.
