Well good old Photobucket have decide on no more free hosting of images! The costs per year are quite high, so I won’t be upgrading my account.July 16, 2017 at 3:21 pm #69802
Yup, I’m not paying them. I have asked for all my images back but not heard anything yet.
I’ve not sorted a solution, although posting on Facebook and setting the image to public will allow you to embed them in here by adding the [ img ] and [ /img ] tags to the url.July 22, 2017 at 12:34 pm #69803elessimoParticipant

I don’t know why they are doing it, everybody I know who used them is not paying up. Having a bad effect on the forum though.July 23, 2017 at 10:04 pm #69805
It will be interesting to see how it pans out. I will be saddened if they stick with it but won’t lose sleep…. yuss, it is poo that it breaks old links, but it will be a thing in history books I believe, where the public stood up and said no to the digital companies holding them to blackmail!July 23, 2017 at 10:05 pm #69806elessimoParticipant

1TB, which should be fine. I am still playing with it to be honest., but it seem fine, and it is freeJuly 27, 2017 at 4:05 pm #69813
I’ve opened an account, not got any of my old images so they are gone forever now but at least can post photos againJuly 31, 2017 at 2:21 pm #69814

I think Dave has saved back up of the site periodically, maybe some of your images would be held on these?August 14, 2017 at 4:38 pm #69815imperialdataKeymaster
Hi all. Unfortunately my backups don’t include external photos. That would mean Terabytes of data to backup.
It seems that Flickr is the best choice at the moment for external hosting.AuthorPosts
