Going through the site, it appears that the photos posted in the past using Photobucket are no longer viewable. I get the same photobucket message. " please update your account to allow 3rd party hosting" they are asking for 60-80$ per year depending on how I go into the site.

I see another string that others have recently been talking about this.

There are a number of other photo sharing sites. Is anyone working on is?

Seems to be the bait-and-switch future of the Internet. I understand the need for a revenue stream but i'd rather put up with a few adds.

As for this forum, we don't have the capability to host photos so i suppose it will be each man (or woman) for themselves. I use hunt101 dot com, but I haven't uploaded anything there in a long time.

Best of luck to all.

I use Imgur for the forums that I frequent, I've never had a photo taken down. When you upload a photo to the site, it should give you a number of links for sharing it, including one that goes directly to the image.

Here is an example, I uploaded this image to Imgur, then using the link labeled "Direct Link", can share anywhere I wish.



I use the format: [img]Put direct link to image here[img]

Thanks

Thanks

Nice gun including the bee on the barrel. What is the file size of your photo? It appears to be high resolution. When I open the thread the photo is huge and I can not read the text. Does anyone else see the same issue? I can zoom in to read the text but I can see this being an issue if there are a number of photos from many people in a string.

I hope we agree this forum will be quite bland without photos and need to work together for a solution.

My major concern is the site history and all the photos in the site in past strings. The only current solution for it to keep working is for all of us to buck up to Photobucket's ransom.

I'm not sure what we should do but want to keep the subject in front of us and focused on a solution.

Thats my bad, that particular photo is 4k, so its not you. The photo is just giant. Should of used a smaller one.

The point still stands though, ive been using imgur for years with great success.

As tragic as it is to lose all of the photos that have been posted here and on dozens of other forums, I'd hate to see Photobucket win by people paying their ransom. I'd much rather see Photobucket go bankrupt due to their greed. If people pay their ransom, and they survive, it will only encourage other photo hosting sites to follow the same path.

This certainly does demonstrate the need to save images on your own back-up files or data storage devices so they aren't totally lost forever.
