    Theoretically yeah but with the huge amount of image hosting sites out there it seems kind of pointless to do so.

    Pretty sure you can upload directly to Ebay, I can't recall uploading pictures elsewhere like photobucket, just directly into the posting.

    The electricity cost on that would be higher than just buying hosting.

    Godaddy has web hosting for like a dollar a month if you get 12 months (Code CJCNI1HOS). There's some super cheap ones on lowendbox.com as well where you can roll like $0.50/year hosting, although the providers are smaller and may be more unreliable.

    I think eBay gives you like 8 photos free per listing or something similar as well.
