Best photo storing sites for Web Design?

Pretty subjective question I suppose, but I am curious what you guys use to store your photos.

I did a bit of googling and came across AWS, smugmug, and a few other options. I have a google account and I assume I can store images on the cloud. However, I'm sure there are better sites/resources that are more tailored for web development.

AWS seems like the best option, though I dont really know if it's appropriate, it seems to do a lot of data analytic type stuff which makes me think its massive overkill. If it has additional tools that are useful (down the road) for website maintenance/storage then I suppose its fine. Plus, I seem to be able to access it from work, most of the other sites are blocked for one reason or another... including smugmug.

Anyway, this is a new topic for me. Any insight is appreciated!

Hey, that depends with whether or not you need to store a lot of images.

I backup all my personal photos using S3 & Google Drive (2 Backups?!?) – and I know that we use Amazon services for many things at Treehouse. Good question. I'm curious to hear other community responses.
