As you probably know Photobucket has changed their rules and now want $500 to host our images.  I have some images stored there but not as many as some people do who have businesses.  They are being accused of holding images/photos hostage as some people apparently didn't backup and can't get their photos back.

I am in the process of loading my images to another web hosting site so I'll be busy for awhile with that.

Check out what the people are saying about this big debacle!  To say they are mad is an understatement!  :whip

For some reason,my sig tag is still here. I rarely (never) go to photobucket for my own stuff so have no idea what else has survived their changes but for now all's well. (And I will NOT be paying them anything!)

Getting to be big in the world, they are.
Can still upload photos but will see ads. Can go ad free for 2.49/mo. Have 3 other price plans: 50 plus gigs for $6/mo, 100 plus gigs for $10/mo, and 500 plus gigs for $40/mo and apparently the only plan that supports 3rd party hosting. *sigh* I'm surprised my sig tag is still coming through.

Mary has found another image hosting site, ImgBB, if anyone wants to use it for sig tags or any other 3rd party hosting of images.

Thanks, I am trying this one https://postimage.org
Easy to use and I've already tried downloading an image.  It worked good.

I was uploading some images and lo and behold, they were going to the wrong gallery!  I contacted them by email to ask if there was a way to move the images to the right gallery but I haven't heard from them.  Now I do know how to put them in the right gallery so
I guess I'll get  to work uploading again!

Hi I just want to let you know the image hosting site is only for very small images such as sigtags.

The large ones load just fine.  Are you saying they won't post?

Good to check in -- it's been a while (understatement).

Yes, I was a Photobucket member but since they wanted outrageous $$$ to allow photo-linking, and they substituted their own message everywhere in place of my linked photos, I simply terminated my account. Didn't have any links that were currently important so adios plus I was not storing photos there.

Thanks -- glad to see the forum is still here and there are still familiar folks. Good to see you here! I think the last time I was here might have been December 2013.

This is linked from an inexpensive website of my own -- so no crazy changes like happened with Photobucket this year!



I hope the image is within the guidelines -- I believe I've seen 400kb somewhere -- if not, please let me know.
