It seems that a few people are asking how to share/show images on the Internet or wonder how much it might cost. I have been a software designer myself for more than 20 years and have experience on creating web sites as well.

I believe there are more than one way to share images with various image size, quality and sharing cost requirements. Sure, it takes a little time to learn the basics of HTML used to write web pages or to manage a web site but it isn't rocket science either. Therefore, I often recommend setting up your own site instead of using picture sharing sites.

Naturally, I manage my own web sites myself to share my images; how do you share your images on the net? What are the primary reasons why you decided to share your images the way you do?
