Quality image hosting site?

Post by Ryan Sikola » June 15th, 2013, 2:58 pm

I used photoshop for a long time and I've noticed my pictures quality reducing significantly after being uploaded. What host do you use?

I use both Flickr and Ipernity.com I have pro accounts on both. Flickr isn't worth the price now that they're giving you a TB of data storage.

I have a pro Pbase account.

You should never let your image host resize your photos. That means you have to stay under their maximum dimensions and filesize. But those limits are usually pretty generous (Flickr allows 12Mb per image, for example). Make sure you check the max dimensions and file size your host will allow. If you stay under these parameters, you won't ever have a decrease in quality when hosting online.
