Do you have old images in your account that you’re not using?
Use our Image Deletion Wizard to safely and easily delete the old, unused images that are cluttering your account.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do not post your listings through Auctiva, we do not recommend the use of this wizard. Images in listings not posted through Auctiva will be deleted using this wizard without any warning.

I don't see where $20/mo is any kind of bargain. You can get the same thing with any hosting company for $5/mo.

If you need an organizational tool for your images just use one of the many open source (= free) image galleries out there with your own web hosting.

$20/mo sounds way too steep if you ask me.

It's not a bargain unless you have images hosted there already and don;thave thousands of dollars worth of time to move them.

Do people really just keep their images in a place like Auctiva without any kind of backup file on their hard drive? I learned a long time ago not to trust that sort of setup. What would happen if there was a fire where their servers are or some other situation that's out of your control?

Heck, I don't even trust my hard drive to be my only backup. I have everything on thumb drives as well.

If you only have pics on Auctiva and thousands of them, then I guess Auctiva can get away with charging that sort of ransom and people will feel they have no alternative but to pay.

Personally, I'd rather give a kid a summer job paying them a pittance to right-click/save every single one of my images until I got them the heck out of there.

My 10-year-old needs work if anyone wants to hire him. He can right click with the best of them.  :0240

With something like Auctiva (or Inkfrog, Turbolister, etc.) I think the larger issue is the convenience of having both the pics and their accompanying listings together both for reference and for relisting when needed. I know I often refer to my old listing descriptions to help create new listings for the same items.

But you're right, in the context of choosing an image host, $20 bucks a month is steep.

I have all my photos on my computer ... so that's not a problem... HOWEVER, I went thru & deleted photos from listings I haven't listed in a while & know I can pull up from my puter quickly.  But I realized ...  1 mg is approx 20 or so photos.  SO no matter which package you choose... you will get hit for additional image hosting if you list 20(ish) with 1 photo.  Quite a racket there   :(

Yep, even if you optimize your photos for the web before uploading, by reducing number of colors to 256 and reducing dpi to 96 or 72 (which most folks dont seem to do), it doesnt take long to rack up 1 meg.

All I know is I deleted over 500 images that I knew or at least hoped were no longer attached to saved listings within Auctiva ... and it did not put a dent in the number the Auctiva is showing I have for MB used.  Thought maybe I could get down a level, lol


So in my case it seems that 1 MB is ALOT.  I deleted 500 images and my number only dropped by 10 MB.
