    yeah, a few do links to a folder etc. Dropbox, google photos etc as well as the usual suspects. Iphone do a sharing folder so you can use that if you have an ipad or mac. Unfortunately mine are all over place and not filed properly as the ones that were done (most) got crash and burn syndrome and the backup did same 5 days later before I got the replacement ... Never got round to redoing them

    All mine are on PC and Hard Drive. I joined Photobucket after joining here, and it was suggested as a way of posting pictures, via the IMG link. It saddens me that all the pictures since 2008 ish are now gone, my words still exist, but the pictures are gone. In away PB have killed part of me by doing this, they have also damaged AoS. I do get why they may need to charge regarding linking, but to demand $400 to do so, for a civilian posting on forums is scummy in the extreme. I can't justify that cost, so my photos will remain gone.

    I don't trust this virtual world, I store nothing on the Cloud, and this experience with PB has reinforced the complete and utter foolishness of anyone trusting the net, or companies. I will continue to be a Luddite and stay real world and in my control focused as long as I can.

    It's not being a Luddite Neil. It's plain common sense.

    The net is an unstable, untrustworthy and fickle thing.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    I feel the same way Neil. I have all my photos saved on various pc and hard drives but photobucket was the recommended way of sharing them on here and now that's ferked.

    Since I'm not someone with a huge technical knowledge to share here the bulk of my contribution has been to share pics of various get togethers and my own humble systems and music purchases.

    I haven't had a lot to contribute here lately due to other distractions and just as I was coming back round to my hifi interests this happens.

    I think I give up.
    One of these days... I'm going to cut you into little pieces.

    I feel pretty much the same Rich. Makes me feel not worth posting anything up anymore and I have put quite a lot of stuff on this site over the last few years.

    The interface for sharing photos with this site needs to be changed so photos can be directly uploaded to the site from your computer and not a third party! Many other sites do this with ease why not AOS?

    Are people not using the facility on this forum to upload pictures? You can load a picture directly to the forum

    In my opinion what Photobucket are doing is nothing short of corporate blackmail. They don't own the images - you do, so it should be up to you to do with them what you like.

    In some ways what Photobucket is doing can be seen to be little different to criminal hackers with ransomware attacks. I too refuse to pay the $400 ransom Photobucket are charging.

    I have written many articles for The Knowledge, and as 'Fount Master' the responsibility to maintain this facility for the benefit of Members is mine. Many, if not most of the images are hosted by Photobucket. The original images taken by me are stored on the hard drive on my PC, but having been downloaded at different times over the last 10 years are in as many folders, along with holiday snaps etc. To re-install them in a 'safe haven' will be a long, tedious and protracted effort - not one which fills me with any enthusiasm.

    And as one Member has already stated, the action of Photobucket now makes me reluctant to post here with any regularity, if at all.


    Grant, as someone who is a real numpty when it comes to software matters, could you describe in words of one syllable how images stored on my PC can be directly posted here? Thanks.

    I totally agree with you Barry.
    As soon as it appears my images are being blocked I shall remove every single one from Photobucket.
