Free website hosting/creation:
- DropPages -- This lets you make a little website with a short URL out of your Dropbox space. I haven't used this, yet, but it seems like a cool solution for anyone who needs to make a small/simple website.
- Google Sites -- A free site builder straight from Google. (Who else?) Gives you a limited amount of web space, too -- I think it's 100MB of space total, unless that's changed.
- Dropbox -- Account required. Overall limit of 2GB to start, but there are free ways to increase that limit. Allows direct linking, so you can use it for image hosting as well! One cool thing is that you can use their program and your personal space becomes a special folder on your computer. This means you can just edit the files inside that folder, and they're updated on the web automatically.
- Google Drive -- If you have a Google account (you do), you can use this. Uses your Google account's space, so your overall limit is probably over 10GB. If you use their Docs feature, it also allows collaborative editing.
- Box -- Another cloud storage site, similar to Dropbox and Google Drive. Has an initial limit of 10GB.
- MediaFire -- Has a filesize limit of 200MB, but otherwise allows unlimited uploads. Automatically deletes your files after a certain period of time unless you register for an account. Doesn't support direct linking.
- 2shared -- Filesize limit of 200MB. Files expire after 50 days without downloads unless you register an account.
- imgur -- If you get an account, you can keep track of your image uploads, but an account is not required. Very popular and easy as cake to use. Highly recommended.
- Photobucket -- Lets you keep track of your uploads, but automatically resizes large images. (I think ones over 1000x1000?)
- TinyPic -- Be careful uploading to this site, since images will eventually be deleted if you're not uploading them with a registered account.
- Puush -- This site is great! Not only does it have automatic screen capturing, but it also lets you upload small files of several types, can automatically make files based on what's in your clipboard, and allows direct linking! Unfortunately, files aren't kept forever, so while it's great for anything you need to temporarily upload to show to people, it's not so great for permanent storage. (I recommend Dropbox for anything you'd like to be permanent.)
- Lightshot -- This is a screen sharing program similar to Gyazo and Puush. It seems pretty solid, and people in this thread have recommended it, but I haven't used it myself. I dunno what advantages it has, and if anyone wants to fill me in, that'd be cool.
- Gyazo -- Another screen capturing program. It doesn't let you upload your own images and it doesn't create direct links, but it does seem to keep captures forever... so... that's something... I guess?
