photos, lock-down, image hosting and other stories

I used to have lots of photos in Livejournal -they're still there, but even at the time it didn't seem like the best platform for that sort of thing. Then I had lots of photo albums in Photopic (I think it was called) which folded. Then I had lots at the Apple iWeb pages. Which Apple closed. Moved to Flickr but that never worked very well for the way I do those things. Facebook is convenient for social event pictures but not for other things. SmugMug is overkill and a bit expensive for me. And it is a subscription, which I'm trying to avoid more of just as everybody in the software world is trying to sell you subscriptions instead of selling you the product outright.

During lockdown I decided to scan the thousands of pictures lying around in shoeboxes. If those pictures had even been in order that was long gone, they're all mixed up and it would take forever to sort them out -this would be much easier with their digital versions and I'm trying to do that. Also, looking for a place out there where to put it. In the meantime, I've been setting up albums in freeimage.host. One thing that concerns me is precisely one of the attractive things about it: it's free. How do they make their money? In any event, they do seem to have privacy settings and their T&C don't seem to tell you they're going to make money out of your pics or publish your private photos, so... in the meantime, my pictures are slowly making their way there. Some albums are restricted or private, so you just would see a few of them.
