Reputable Photo Hosting Sites:
Flickr is the main photo hosting site I use. This says something about how much I like them, seeing as how I pay a lot of money to host my own web server, and have plenty of space and bandwidth available if I so choose.
There are several reasons I went with them:
$25.00/year "pro" account gets you unlimited hosting space, bandwidth, and no ads on your photo pages
The FlickrUploadr tool they provide is lightweight, easy to use, and intuitive. You just drag & drop files onto it, choose the sets/collections your photos will belong to (optional), set private/public, safety level, and even provide captions and tags if desired.
A well-regarded photo hosting site. It's moer expensive than flickr, but has some neat options to allow the high-level pro accounts make money from selling prints and downloads. I didn't go with them simply because I've decided that I'm NOT interested in getting back into the rat-race of professional/semi-professional photography.
Another excellent photo sharing site hosted by the (mostly) non-evil Google. I really wanted to use them for my albums, but found that I didn't like the fact that even paid accounts have storage limits. Their free account is really superb for folke who don't plan on having more than a few gigs of photos online, and their picasa software is a decent workflow management tool (which I don't use anymroe since I started using LightRoom).
Troy Paiva's Lost America site has some of the most amazing night photography shots I've ever seen. His web site is more of a photo gallery, but his technique page is a must-read for nighttime shutterbugs.
