I started with YahooPhotos, they closed down, then went to SonyImagestation, they closed, and transferred to Shutterfly, which I now use. It's just a tad not easy to navigate.
What is your feedback on the other sites out there? :)

zenfolio.com 40$ a year for unlimited storage and unlimited bandwidth. They even let you download the original picture.
The interface is *really* fast. They achieve this by pre-loading the next 5 photos, so when you view an album, you can just arrow left or right and flip through photos as you would photos sitting on your hard drive. Brilliant site.

I have all of my loads of images at Photobucket so far. If you want a lot of options, I can always go back to one of my former forums and snag the list of image hosting sites we had over there for ya, Frazz.

photobucket have a new multiple uploading tool ;-) very cool
and flickr is good too :-)
I've used a lot of the different options. Flickr won out in the end. For a free account it has a lot to offer. The biggest bonus is that if you keep track of the urls of your images the links never die or get to a limited number and prevent you from uploading like photobucket does on their free accounts.
Flickr will limit the number of images you can see to organise etc. and that's why keeping a file with the urls is key to exploiting this option.
The paid account is pretty cheap @ $20 which I'm using now, but the only thing I really notice as different is that you can see all your images to organise and such, but I have those on file so whatever else is available doesn't really impact my activity there. I doubt I'll renew my paid account there.
I re size my images to a maximum dimension of 750px usually so have never experience a bandwidth limit with Flickr free account even on heavy use months. It's the most popular of the sites and I think the reasons I state are some of the reasons they lead the pack.
Whatever works for you is good too though. :)

I use photo bucket and Image shack. Flicker had a monthly upload limit for free accounts.
By sizing my images to 750px for a maximum dimension I never got to the upload cap on Flickr and the limit on Photobucket is defined by a finite number of images isn't it? Flickr has not number limit and that's what I was after. I had a thousand images uploaded on the free account where as with Photobucket I got to a point where I had to delete images, move them somewhere else or make another account.
Please correct me if I'm wrong on these points.
I also like the feature where I can apply a creative commons licence to my images on Flickr.
