Like maybe some others here, I despise social media. I left FB 6 years ago and haven't looked back, with so many people divided by politics. No interest in other social media. Still, I have tons of photos and videos I'd like to share whether to family and friends or even publically, by sending a link or otherwise not having to be in a network and not Google Photos or other creepy data-miners (though maybe they all are in a way).

Any suggestions for sites (stable and not likely to go under soon as some startups do)? I know there's Flickr and other photo-ordering sites which are maybe more driven by profit to order prints. Just looking for something with a good blend of features, storage and not likely to go belly-up tomorrow. Thanks :)

https://www.dropbox.com/

I've used this when I need to transfer files too large for email. For photos, I usually use a graphics program to reduce the file size and insert them in emails.

Yeah, I use dropbox for some things, but there are things u can't do with it, and space is fairly limited.

I've been using https://publit.io/ for a couple of years, they give you 10GB space free and you can do clever things with their site, that google and dropbox won't let you do.

For example I had some spreadsheet files that loaded images dynamically based on filenames in cells

:)

There are probably other better newer options, it just worked for me, and has already been around for a while, more than four years anyhow. Ah, five years, apparently.
