Free photo and image hosting for website pictures.
If you are looking for a secure and free place to host your cool images and photos, there is one place I can recommend.
The one thing you should bear in mind when looking for a free photo host, is if they close the site down, you will lose all of the links to your images.
If this happens, you will be devastated. But, fear not, I will provide you with a very secure place to host your images.
Free Image Hosting
So where do I recommend you host your images, pictures and photos?
Well, love ’em or hate ’em, I choose Google Photos.
Whoever you decide to register with for image hosting, you will need to create an account. With a free Google account, when you register for Photos, you get 15GB of free storage. That is a lot of storage. Save more space by resizing or optimising your photos. Learn how here.
Google Photos also allows you to crop your images and rotate them.
If you need to find the link to your images to display online, follow the below instructions:
Join Google Photos here
Upload a photo via the upload button in Photos, an example is below:
Click on the image, the image URL will display in the web address bar, copy and paste the URL into any website or profile etc – URL is circled in red in the below picture. The green padlock indicates a secure connection.
What I like about the Google Photos website is that you can edit your photos. You can change the filter effect, crop your images and share them.
See examples of the different filters below:
So, if you are looking for a very reliable, totally free photo hosting service with 15GB of storage, I suggest registering for Google Photos.
