Mac is full - storage options for photos?

What are the best options for storing photos online (or otherwise) from iphoto?
I have a MacBook Pro and just updated to OS X so I could get icloud, hoping that I could store photos there. But quickly learned that photos only stay in the cloud for 30 days. My laptop has about 90GB of photos on it and is stuffed. I had been storing some photos on CDs, but recently have read that isn't a good long term solution. I have things backed up, but am on my third external drive in three years (two crashed) so I'm leery of using that as anything more than a short term backup solution versus longterm storage.
Just tried using Picassa, but it seems like the program was duplicating photos from iphoto on my hard drive, eating up the small amount of space I had left. Flickr seems to be the only easy upload option from iphoto, but considering I have to pay for it I want to make sure it's the best solution before moving forward. Thanks for any advice!
