Picasa is a popular image sharing site owned by Google. It allows users to store and share images online. You can chose to set different privacy levels for each photo or on a per album basis and the maximum space that Picasa web provides for album and pictures is 1 GB.

This website is one of my favorite as it not only offers image sharing in different formats but also offers option to convert all the uploaded images into .png format and gives you the HTML and BB code for linking the images from a website or a forum.
This website is also a great place to use for sharing your images. Users can upload their memories and keep them forever with the free unlimited space. Users can also create different photo books for their personal purpose or can make all photo books public.
