Hi,
Anyone know of a safe picture hosting website? I want to share some pictures with my family but I have a fear of the few sites I know of.
Face book and myspace are not sites I go to, I've leaned that much from you guys Wink A long time ago I had something from Sony that came with an old computer but they dropped that.
Thanks for any ideas,
Becky

i wouldn't call any picture hosting site "safe" as there's always a chance it could be hacked or your login could be guessed / brute forced / whatever.

i'd be cautious about putting your most personal pics online as a substitute for storage - just lob those onto an external HD and stash it somewhere.

as for your more general pics, i use flickr and not had any problems.

www.flickr.com

of course there are photobucket and imageshack - photobucket recently had an issue with DNS shenanigans though.
