I want to upload and store/back up the vast majority of my digital photos to help free up space on my laptop.

I'm thinking the best (and least expensive) way to do this is to put them online.

Most of my pix are from a compact and are only about 2592x1944 jpegs.

Just want to know if anyone has any comments or suggestions on this? What to use, what to avoid, why etc etc. I'm thinking of using Flickr simply as it is the most well known to me.

I have previously used Photobucket in the distant past but that was only so I could link images to a social network site.

I'm looking to actually use the upload website as my own personal storage space and don't really plan to share and suchlike.

Any advice/comments appreciated. Thanks. David.

edit: another thought or something to consider - file size upload limitations and also how much I can upload before I have to pay or 'upgrade' my account...
