What do you want to do & what lmitations do you want to overcome.
 For basic online storage I use my windows live (was hotmail) account for sharing with family & friends, 25gb free storage. I can put full size images for them to download and print if reqd but mostly just store web size images of family events/days out etc and send them a link.

If you're a photographer, or have more than one computer or ever want to share a file with anybody....then you really want to get Dropbox http://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTM5NTEyNDY5 (that link gets you a free account and gets me even more storage).

Drop a file in a folder on your computer and it's on all your computers and a secure website.  Invite family and friends to share stuff.  Plus it has nice galleries.  I use it all the time to show work to clients and send files to magazines etc.

Thanks Jonathan, I've created an account I like the backup of online storage. I hope you get the extra space as I'm sure you can use it.
