I have been a member for a couple of months now and recently upgraded to a lifer. I have saved, printed, read and reread many threads so that I may oneday be as proficient as many on this site. I have taken a private lesson (with many more to follow) from Bob Warren and hope to "feed" off of his experience to grow as a photographer.
I have a decent setup, DigiRebel, 18-55 mm (f3.5 to f5.6...not impressive), Canon 75 -300mm f4.0 to f5.6, 85mm f1.8 (on order), 420 Speedlight, strobes, back drops, filters, reflectors,yada yada yada...even some home depot lights LOL...

I have Photoshop CS 8.0, elements, cd's and books on both....I read constantly, shoot every available minute, monitor or "lurk" here throughout the day and night...trying to put it all together...

NOW I am ready to post my first image for critique. I am NOT shy...I want any POSITIVE or CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM any can throw my way....JT if you are reading, I'll even welcome your "DON'T EVER DO THAT AGAIN" comments....

My concerns: When posting the image for critique, I know there is a process to link it to a URL..or hosting site..correct?? I recently purchased my domain, Bobby G Photo, but I have not contracted a host as of yet. I have a group site with MSN to share general stuff with family and friends for now...

CAN THIS BE USED AS THE LINK? I thought I read somewhere here that this type of site CANNOT be used.

If NO, do you have any recommendations OR warnings for HOST's... I know there are many, but possibly any of you may refer one that is reputable OR one to ignore?

Are some HOST's better equipped for multiple or larger images as compared to others??

And finally, when the hosting issues are resolved, is there a forum here for direction on ACTUALLY posting the image in a thread. I have seen many try and retry to post their image so it seems it may not be an easy process.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

For a great hosting service, talk to my man Joel at www.cyberbest.com (his email is joel@cyberbest.com). Used him for years, never a complaint, helpful, always a phone call way.

You *can* link to images from some group sites line MSN and Yahoo!. The limit isn't whether GG will let you, it's whether the host will let you. Some do, most don't.

The easiest thing to do would be to add the pic to your GG portfolio... it's simple to post a GG port pic to a forum message. You can always take it down if you don't like it.

Another hosting service that's popular with photographers is Photogserver.Com . Their price for image hosting, alone, is about $4/month.

I have my web site there, and have been quite happy with the service since I contracted with them last summer.

I use 2globalmart.com. You can get their minimum plan for $29.95 per year and that gives enough space for thousands of photos. They also will allow glamour nude photos (but they are not an adult hosting service, so the nudes must be acceptable within the normal GG limits). They have a easy to use, very powerful control panel. I have 12 websites hosted with them.
Cheers,
rfs
