I've got a few files I'll be wanting to share with any interested gaming/cardstock modelers/hobbyists soon. And I'd like any suggestions on good, free file hosting services anyone is using successfully.
I'm currently using www.4shared.com to create temporary backups of some of my files, as well as occasionally sharing stuff with friends. Standard accounts are free, and you can have as many as you have e-mail addresses (much like Photobucket). Registering gets you 5Gb of storage space, which you can divide up into folders if you need to, and you can upload individual files of up to 100Mb.

I do have a few blogspots reserved. I just didn't look into what kind of policy on download limits, etc.
I was speaking mainly about PDf documents. The tile set I have made for dungeon crawling. And other items currently in the works. For images I'll continue using Photobucket, Picasso & eventually FlikR.
I am not ready to purchase my own domain (but when I do it'll probably be at SquareSpace) so I wondered what was free and the easiest method of getting some files distributed for people whom want them...without having to e-mail them all individually.
I'm still using it and I don't think the admins would mind but I post all my finished stuff over at www.papermakeit.com/. I use photobucket for my images as well. The main reason why I use paper make it is because other gamers (not just the ones that visit onemonks) get a chance to see and use it.

Might I suggest Dropbox. It has been suggested before but I thought I'd put it here as well to be complete. It's really quite easy. Download the client, put the file you want to share in the public folder, right click and 'Copy Public Link', then paste it where ever you want to share it. Like so:

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
