Online Photo Storage, Any Recommendations?

I am searching for online photo storage and am a bit confused.
I need free, PRIVATE and viewable to ONLY myself unless I choose to share pictures. I have a few hours of videos that I'd like to upload also.

Any help would be appreciated.

Photobucket?

Thanks

I use Picasa (owned by Google) to do what you described. Flickr or Photobucket should also do the trick.

I'm quite happy using photobucket. Its free. Another possibility is to use a cheap ISP and set up a web page for your self. I used to have one for model aircraft I built and sold, it was costing me about $7 a month. Pow web was the provider I used.

Send a message via Skype™ to sv_makai
I use ixwebhosting.com not only to manage our website, but also a private area for sharing with certain family and friends. Makes it easy to upload pics and just give a password for access

The other part is it is a dedicated domain sv-makai.com (our boat site) and the plan provides 1000 email accounts as xxxxx@sv-makai.com for the same price along with other cool things like forwarder, responders.

No Ads unless you want them. total control

I use Carbonite. $50 a year. It automatically backs up every single file I have. And you can get anything back if you crash. I even managed to take 110 gigs from my external hard drive and get it backed up with Carbonite. I like it so far.

Simple private real-time sharing and collaboration by drop.io would work. Setup a bunch of free accounts to get around space limits.
Welcome to Flickr - Photo Sharing works but video is limited in the free version
