Image hosting sites : post here your views, advice, and links

There are various hosting sites that allow free up and downloading with some differences that make each of them unique.

https://imgbox.com/

Pros :Allows very easy mass uploading, you can choose the format of the thumbnails, and you can navigate between images of the same post by easy to use arrows.

Cons : There were few until recently. But now it changes the filenames, so the downloader will have to rename each and every image one by one. This erase the advantage of easy mass posting as it provides for VERY uneasy mass downlaod.

https://postimages.org/

Pros :
Keeps almost perfectly the filenaming of the images.

Cons :
Errors happens when posting more then 20 images at ther same time. Does not allow more then 50 anyway.

http://abload.de/

Pros : Keeps filenaming, provides dimension of the big image on the thumbnail (a great asset when updating an existing collection)

Cons, none then I know, except it is in German and I'm unlucky that this language is not amongst the 5 I'm fluent with.


https://servimg.com/

Pros : realy free and easy to use

Cons : partly renames your images after the 6th caracter making some confusion for the downloader when uploading a new image of the same car some time later.

Once good sites, now paying for no real superior service then free sites.



Other sites, just tell us why you use them. Your opinion is welcomed.

In my opinion imgbox is Great when sharing, but may be à pain when downloading huge posts. Unfortunately, some mega posters use it as I did myself until they changed their file renaming routine. I WONT do it again, now that I dowloaded and renamed by hand 650 pictures in a row.
