This may be a better link

 

https://www.pcmag.com/news/354711/photobucket-breaks-image-links-across-the-internet

 

 

 

If this is the case then almost all of my photo essays on this site will no longer work. Years ago I started putting images on Photobucket and linking them here. I spot checked a few and the topics and the photos are still showing up. Maybe it has a timer?

 

PS. It won't do much good to move photos, it would take forever to fix all the links. Nonetheless, when a leader does something like this, it doesn't take too long for others to follow.

I been messing around with a few alternatives to Photobucket the past few days. So far the best I found were Imgur and Google Photos. Someone recommended Imageshack, but they wanted to charge a fee.

This is a Link to a Photo Album on my Face Book. Why not just creat an Album on your Face Book and then post the Link here?

Can you post a single pic or do you have to post an album. 95% of the time I'm just posting one pic like my sig pic.

Some of us have terms and conditions issues with Facebook photos. At one point, your ownership and rights of the photo passed to Facebook. I consider my images mine, not someone else's. So if Ansel Adams were alive today, and he had posted his Moonrise Hernandez photo to Facebook, he'd never have gotten a penny.

Trying something. I have two Photobucket accounts (from when they had a hard limit on size), one I've continued with paid and the other is still "free".

 

Here is an image linked from the paid account

Here is an image linked from the free account

 

DSC_3282.jpg

 

 

The linking method for the free account is different but as of right now both images appear here.

 

I will add that the "free" account gets so many different kinds of advertising popups that it is very annoying. I'd combine them since they have now increased the quote to way more than I need but there isn't any known way to do it...

Just went to my Photobucket account this morning...it's a jumbled mess. Don't know if it's because so many people are trying to rescue their photos or what. Fortunately I've only used as a sharing site no nothing will be lost, but I can't even get to my albums to see what I've stored there.

 

Needless to say the comments across the internet are not very complimentary towards the a - oops, I can't say that here.

If I am only posting a few Photos, I just post the ones from my personal Photos saved on my Computer. To resize them I use "Paint" and to post them here I click on the Browse button below and it goes to my Photos, I choose the one I want to post by double Clicking on it and I up load it here. I have noticed that many of the Hosting sites will expire the Photo.

I got Imageshack for free...for now anyways.

I've been using Flickr, so far no notices of any fees. But that means nothing.

So how do you get the Image link in Flickr to post it in your signature? A I recall the formatting had to be special for the pic's to show up in this forum.

What about Drop Box?

 

Thought Dropbox had stopped the ability of embedding photo's into a forum or website? Was sometime in March....I know that you can put a link up, but have to click on it to go to the Dropbox server your account is on.

I stand to be corrected.

I use "Postimage", easy to use, free and works on this forum. https://postimages.org/

I'm not sure, let me try.

 

I think dropbox will allow it but for some reason it says the forum won't allow it....

Thanks Sam, I'll give it a try.

PS............It works, but I had to use the Thumbnail for forums for the link to display the picture. I'm guessing the Hotlink for forums will work just as well.

 

PPS.........The Hotlink for forums link lets you adjust the picture size and display it accordingly. That seems to be the best one.

That would be nice, except the PB has P***d me off so badly with their whole approach to this mess I would prefer to find a nice alternative. I wouldn't have objected to a reasonable monthly/yearly fee. But they're crazy.
