Good luck. As long as your willing to spend the time it takes to promote it and keep it running smooth for your users, then I'm sure you will make it big. :)
It's a hard market to get in to, but hard work usually pays off, so I'm crossing my fingers for your success.

It's bad to say, but unfortunately if you don't invest on your project you can't make money with an images hosting website. I'm in your own situation, with more than 600,000 images on the server BUT currently no $$ from Ads.

I tried different Ads comany, but unfortunately I had no one with the ability to repay the hosting. So if you want to use this script for "money" and not for personal use , I think he is not good . "Or do you have funds to invest , or your project dies".

My situation was that:

1 - Noone use my imageshosting . :<
2 - Oh! Some users starting using my hosting, uploaded 10 images in one day WOW!
3 - Oh yea finally 2,000 impressions in one day !
4 - 1000 images hosted in one day ? amazing
5 - bilion of hits, 5 TB bandwitdh in one day . OH SHIT! My website is gone offline.
6 - Cloudflare : " Sorry but you are consuming lot of bandwitdh for our server , please pay us $ 1000 to continue the service" .
7 - Hosting: "Sorry but your server is gone offline cause of hight load , please upgrade your machine with this new one to continue the service."

Conclusion : If you use Chevereto (or any other images hosting script) for your little community , i think it's amazing . But if you try to create something "decent" (not BIG) to do some moneys with ADS i think this is not the best solution.

My website is online from more the 4 years (2 years using my personal images hosting script) and i didn't see 1 $ from this website.

I got other project the luckly are going fine so i want to continue to see where this project of images hosting will end.

I'm sorry for your decision and i understand you.
Cheers :)
