Peter,

in a word - Amazon S3. all the images on my site are hosted there and there's a great API which allows you to post the images as tho' posting to your own site. the only 'downside' is that you pay per gigabyte upload/download (i use an ashx handler to preserve as many in the host-server cache as possible). this is currently $0.15 per GB download, so my monthly bill has never been more than 1 US dollar :).

if you setup an account, you can download c# /asp.net examples of it in use.
