Well, that might work in certain cases. IF your images aren't the draw to
your site, then maybe. And if you aren't a biz/pro user.
If you have a site that's all about images you can't find elsewhere (I
dunno, a nature photographer, wedding photographer, something like that),
you'd maybe sprinkle a few images to flickr or something as 'advertising'.
OR, you could push some low-res versions out around, keep the ultra high-res
for yourself. (I'm working on a design for a astronomy photographer, and
the bandwidth issues are huge for the hi-res imagery...).
There are probably a dozen 'free image hosting' sites out there. For people
who don't care, most of them don't have any of the restrictions flickr
might, but a few of them push their own advertising on image-view pages.
