    I have also grown fed up with Photobucket and opened an I Imgur account on your advice. Much much better.

    Mmnn.....
    Frying pan/fire comes to mind.
    Wouldn't trust any of em.
    No such thing as a free lunch.
    When they become too popular and the overheads for providing the service outweighs the revenue they can generate, they will do something similar to Photobucket and stop people hot linking.

    I agree about Imgur. Easy to upload and a breath of fresh air after Phartbucket , who can go and stuff themselves
    I only ride 'em, I don't know what makes 'em work

    Always used Imageshack (for YEARS now) with *zero* problems. Never understood why Imageshack always seemed to be less popular than Photo[sick]bucket...?

    Photobucket was very annoying and slow for me. All those pop up ads and it took an age to download pics with our naff internet speed. With flickr, there are no ads and it is a lot quicker, so photobucket did me a favour.

    Im on Imgur now and its very fast to upload. I can easily provide links and images for this forum

    Im really miffed about photobucket as it was way too slow to use and suddenly I was to be charged for a service I wouldnt pay for.

    I just upload a few pictures to have a link for forums. I hadnt thought about what monetary value I would put on that

    I notice they have dropped their price from $350 to $80 a year. That must please those who signed up at $350 no end. Still ridiculous. Who in their right mind would pay 80 bucks just to store a few photos?

    Why store photos there in the first place? If I have anything I want to keep (which is seldom), it goes on a DVD or memory stick.

    Photobucket own the Tinypic image hosting site which is free. But it is littered with ads.

    The ads are fair enough if they are not charging you. I appreciate they have to eat too. But for five bucks a year you should be able to go ad-free. Not $80.
