@plantarum I've been wondering this recently myself and I'd love to hear what you wind up doing.
@jamey for storing/sharing high-res images, it's going to be hard to beat flickr/smugmug/500px on price. They each offer unlimited storage for about the cost of 20-40GB extra storage at #digitalocean . And presumably they are less likely to delete my files than I am to screw up my own server.
Still need to look more at #pixelfed ...
You know about Pixelfed, don't you ? 🤔
@AbbieNormal yes, if I could find an instance with super-generous upload limits that would work. I'd pay if that was an option, but I think most have fairly low limits.
Currently I'm using a Flickr Pro account, which gives me unlimited storage for the price of 40-60GB of self-storage on digitalocean.
You could run your own istance, self hosted or on some vps
That's what I was thinking of
Of course you should pay for storage
I mean buy disks, getting them on line
