    Flickr

    If you're into digital photography, or even just film photography, you've probably got a Flickr account!

    Flickr is the biggest photography online service. They give you unlimited space to put your photos up. Free accounts have 20MB of bandwidth per month for you to upload your photos. Say each photo is 500kb, that's 40 photos per month. Pro users have 2GB!

    You can then attach tags to your photos to share them with other people. Say you took a photo of the sea with the sun setting. You could tag it sea, blue, water and sun. You can then see other people's photos that have been tagged with any of those.

    So, if you're a member:

    Post a link to your photos:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/photomonkey/

    Then add yourself to this group:
    http://www.flickr.com/groups/flashkit/

    If you've never heard of Flickr:

    What's it all about?
    http://www.flickr.com/about.gne

    Get an account now and start uploading your photos!

    If you've got a free account, shrink your photos to 1024x768 or something before you upload them, otherwise you will quickly see your bandwidth limit disappearing.

    They provide RSS feeds for almost every page - could we use that?

    yup! you click on your photo when signed in. and then you have a choice of 3(maybe 4) different size options to direct link and post here with.

    Amazing service that Flickr is!

    Ohh that's what he means

    Yep - even free accounts can do it. Few other people have used it in other threads.
