I use image shack. And it always works well. I'd only load up jpegs though...so you'll have to resave your tiffs.

you could just build a web site and host your images.

What were you using before?

I will *always* recommend www.photobucket.com

hands down the best.

But I will say, the free account of photobucket limits the size of your artwork to a maximum of 1 meg (Imageshack is 1.5 megs).

However, photobucket is much better organized, better (and a LOT more) features. They also have a paid option that allows images up to 2 megs, and more space of course (1gig for free, 5gigs for the sub), it's not expensive either (cheaper than most web hosts).

I have a free account, and I really don't need the paid account, and if you're main purpose is posting on message boards, I doubt you'd need it either.

Imageshack, IMO, is better for occassional images. Not images you're going to want to go back to, or post in multiple locations.
