Pictures from Photobucket locked

as of 6/30/2017 Photobucket is charging $400 a year to allow photos stored there to be used on other web sites (imbedded). They now call this 3rd party hosting.

bye bye photobucket and my regrets to those who liked my (many) pictures

agree, their advert's had gotten crazy and they were increasingly difficult to use.

certainly they had the advert's to make money and that failed so now they will charge for virtually everything ... but the cheapest account that allows '3rd party hosting' is $400 a year ..... and THAT's crazy.

Anyone got a replacement they like

I know I can put pics here but I used to have pictures on a BUnCH of web forums in addition to this one. Having the pics in one place was super handy.

I use Flickr for photos I care about or Droplr for quick uploads.
