    You shouldnot miss BlueMelon and Picasa – these are great services.

    BlueMelon has all of the features you might think necessary – with, for the time being, the exception of video support. Picasa is missing some of the features BlueMelon offers but supports video. They both offer 1 GB of free storage and are both easy to use although BlueMelon is generally more user-friendly.

    Try either of them or both. You will definitely not regret trying them.

    I just signed up with Unlimited storage for both videos and pictures and it’s completly free.
    No monthly limits or qoutas.
    Photos and videos are stored in their original formats and sizes and are kept unmodified for backup.
    I also like that you can geo-tag your stuff so it shows up on a map. And you can search for stuff on the map – that’s cool!.
    As the only site i know of it uses a Windows Explorer like navigation with folders – super easy to use – even has drag and drop!.
    I can highly recommend it.
