Question: Free Photo Sharing Sites

I like Flickr and Picasa Web Albums but I've just about reached my free upload limit. I'm a cheap guy who doesn't like to unnecessarily pay for things and I'd rather not get stuck with a service which will be hard to give up. So now I'm thinking I'd better come up with a really good option. There are a number of services out there, I know. I have an ImageShack and a PhotoBucket account, and they are OK but I don't like the navigation and they have a busy appearance and they are perhaps a bit slow.

I need the site to be:

- totally free (at least up to 1 GB)
- clean and easy on the eye
- logic in its navigation
- rather fast than slow

Do you have a favorite to recommend?

UPDATES:
First suggestion is in from josephzohn: eSnips
(and I actually already have an account there! I forgot about it.)
Update on this: I've tried it but it doesn't seem to allow linking. I'm sure it's very good in other ways like sharing with other eSnippers.

MrJ: Thanks! A good suggestion and the fact that I already got an account doesn't make it any less good. ;) I don't think I realized or I had forgotten it came with 5 GB. Should be hard to beat.

I may suggest KoffeePhoto.

Carl: Thanks for your suggestion! Will check it out. :)

another easier way to upgrade your acct (with services like Picasa) - sign up with a different email address... multiple times. then set your mail from those accts to auto cc everything to your main address. voila.

Matt: This is a good idea too. I've though about getting more accounts but I also thought it might get a bit messy. However, maybe it's not more messy than getting a new service altogether. Thanks!

Anonymous: Thanks! It's probably very good. It's a shame that it's so hard finding info on the site. Info like how much space you got etc. I had the same problem with KoffeePhoto.
