Photo hosting, coming soon.... [Jul. 22nd, 2004|03:53 pm]

We've been talking about it for years, but it's finally happening. Photo hosting is coming soon. To warm up, we've started the first round of beta testing.

If you have a permanent account or paid early adopter account, you're a part of the first beta group. For more details, see:

http://www.livejournal.com/community/lj_biz/230346.html

Sorry we can't open it up to everybody at once... that'd be too much of a flood, both in terms of hardware resources (which we haven't bought enough of yet) and feedback (we know there are some rough edges still).

But when we do open it up to all of you guys, it'll be all the better for having gone through a moderately large beta test first.

We'll be posting again when we have news about its final opening or if we decide to first do a larger beta testing group.

Yes, paid accounts only (well, paid and permanant accounts), with a 50mb limit on storage. The storage is split between phone posts, user pics, and whatever pictures are uploaded to be hosted.

Since I'm a paid member, I'm sooooo going to give it a try. I can't even be sure people see my photos I've placed into my journals via Geocities. I can't see them, all I get are the "x" placemarkers after the pics have been posted for a while and viewable by me.

So that's what that was about - checked my user status a few days ago, noticed there was a stat for something called Photo Hosting, then couldn't figure out why it was there.

Anyone know if it'll be possible to link to stored pictures from pages off Livejournal, or will this be purely a "store pictures you want in your journal" thing?

Clearly some people care. If you don't then why waste valuable time commenting? Strikes me as rather odd...

W00t!

Coolness.

BTW, do you have any thoughts about what this will cost? Does some level of pic-hosting come for free with a paid account? I have a paid LJ besides my personal one, and I might want to keep my pictures separate. Maybe.

Re: W00t!

LiveJournal paid users will get photo hosting for no extra charge. Not unlimited disk space, though, there will be some base amount and then upgrades past that.

i hope you will not forget to test it with non-englsh titles, gallery names etc.

It was all designed UTF-8-aware, so it should support any languages intermixed anywhere.

yaaaaa....excitement abounds*(thumbs up)..was wondering when you guys were going to get to this stage..will it only be available for paid users or everyone that uses LJ? (curious minds wanna know!)

Probably just paid users, at least initially. If we did give free users space, it wouldn't be much I imagine. (disk is cheap, but bandwidth is not, especially if they're using it as free porn site hosting.....)
