Heads-Up! No More Free Photobucket 3rd Party Image Hosting.

Was on another Moto-Forum when I came across this image marker from Photobucket:



Apparently, their Terms of Use have changed so that there is no more free hosting for 3rd party web sites.

Quote:
... The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account...
I haven't encountered any issues yet with the picts I currently have hosted there, so I'm assuming that there is a bandwidth limit that my image sharing hasn't triggered yet. Regardless, if anyone is using a different online service for sharing their picts, please post up and relate your experiences (free or paid).

... that's all I've used there place for for many years. Since that photo a lot today though.

So, who's got a good web-host to post pictures on forums?

I just started using Imgur, as recommended by my IT son, who also admins a couple other forums.

This is currently the oldest image I have hosted there, and it is still working.







Here is an example of what the warning looks like on another forum.

I just had to update all the pics from my "New Project" thread because of Photobucket. Had to do the same on a different forum for the same reason.

Okay, so here's something interesting. When I try to view this same image that I downloaded a while back, I can't even see it myself on Photobucket, just the stupid "Update" image as was shown in the OP. But pictures downloaded prior to that I can, and can copy the link. And pictures a downloaded a week later can be viewed and the link copied. So, I re-downloaded this image, copied it and tested it here, and it works. It's as if Photobucket had a glitch for a bit and has seemed to fix it. But all images downloaded during that time are broken.

Update, after reloading my Photobucket page, now the image is unviewable. Done with Photobucket, on to Imgur.

Thank goodness they finally did this, Photobucket is by far the worst photo hosting site in existence. No ability to open the photos in full res? Must view on their website? No direct linking to the image? What's the point?!

Imgur is simple and provides you with ample features for minor photo editing, links to different resolutions for posting online, and even provides pre-generated forum/reddit/etc. formatted links so you can copy/paste directly into the forum editor and not touch the "link image" buttons. It ain't fancy and it doesn't need to be.

Photobucket was getting so slow with all of the Flash-based ads that it was basically unusable anyway. Eff you Photobucket!

Edit: Easy to use, I like it! Thanks for the recommendation guys.

Hmm....Tapatalk loads the picture, but chrome shows only a link. Don't really like that.

Works in Firefox.

Looking at the Forum's Code in the "Reply Box" it looks like it was posted using the "Insert Link" as it has the "url" brackets on either side of the link.

Need to click the "copy" button of the link titled "BBCode" rather than "Image Link". Also, make sure you click "Large Thumbnail" in the "Sizes" box, otherwise you will get really big pictures on the forum.

Make sure you change the size from "Original" to "Large Thumbnail" before copying the link to prevent huge images on the forum.
