Using photo hosting in business

I believe small businesses with lower storage and bandwidth allotment on their websites could benefit greatly from photo hosting. If you are only posting a few pictures of products (say menu items for a small restaurant) then there is no need to over pay for huge amounts of storage space and high bandwidth. Embedding these images in your website, but hosting them on a free photo hosting site, could be a great way to lower overhead costs. I have had two .com websites I have created in the past and neither of them used anywhere near the allotted space or bandwidth. But these were just hobby sites, with very few page views. It was necessary for me to use FTP to upload images and files, which can be a pain sometimes. Photo hosting sites are much more intuitive and easy to use than FTP so adding content is much quicker.
