    Hi Guys,

    So I've been doing a bit of research primarily on ImageTwist who are an free imagehost that pays you something like $2 per 1000 image views and I wondered how I could replicate what they do and make more money...

    I based this research on the fact that if they are paying $2 odd per 1000 image views they must be able to make at least that so I had a look at some images I uploaded and created the below overview that shows you exactly how to replicate their banners and sponsors.

    If you guys find this usefull I may just put together a script package that you can upload to your shared or dedicated hosting which enables you to run your own "private" imagehosting script with the demonstrated format.

    You just need a static php script maybe called "image.php or index.php" and then pass it the image name each time to replicate something similar :)

    So you'd do something like:

    Thumbnail:
    http://www.yourdomain.com/thumb.php?img=12162

    FullSize:
    http://www.yourdomain.com/image.php?img=12162

    Obviously the above could be cleaned up so that your domain would look like:

    http://www.yourdomain.com/thumb/12162
    and
    http://www.yourdomain.com/image/12162

    ;)
