For those that like hosting on their own server, Picasa (and I think
Flickr too) offer an API to their system so you can load the pictures
you store with them anywhere and any way you want on your own website.
 I'm creating a picasaweb to flickr app for Facebook right now using
that - APIs make things so much easier, as I can now rely on Google's
teams of Engineers to host, backup, etc. my pics and at the same time
do whatever I want with them.
