That is completely up to you. We want our Gallery to be a showcase of member photography, so please make use of it! However, our resources are finite, so it makes sense to use outside hosting if your needs exceed what we can provide.Do you prefer that I host images in the SeriousCompacts.com Gallery or at ______?
.Each member has 100MB allotted space in the Gallery. Site supporters (donors) get 500MB. These amounts are subject to change depending on our resources. If we downsize, you may lose images, so do not use our Gallery as your only place to store images!!!
Zenfolio is 50 a year and is what I use.
Microsoft gives you 25Gb of space for free and works very well for hosting pictures and embedding them too. Check out Microsoft Sky Drive.
