I thought it would be a good idea to list some of the alternatives to Photobucket that I've found.
They are not tested by me, so please don't ask!
If you have any ideas of your own, please list in this thread!
I will add more as I find them.
Thank you

Lisa what I meant is that I am using ServImg here just via the post.
I've never visited that website myself ... (as far as I can remember) .. But I remember that
they (Forummotion) had the ServImg not from the beginning. But we can upload as much as we want via our Forum posts - so I guess everyone can do that.

I forgot about 4shared .. will take a look again .. and Conny have you already tested Bilderhoster? It looks great.

I've just visited 4shared .. and when I understood it correctly .. to get the "direct link" you have to pay $9,95/month ..

Sam, this is great news!!
I do hope you will figure out how to share the e mail with us all.
I already have a lot of uploads there, and I would be so happy if they do allow 3rd party hosting.

HERE is a link to the policy of imgur about 3rd party hosting.

I will use that host then for now. I see however that one will be limited to 50 images per hour, but unlimited in your account. That is good news.

I will move my images there instead.

Thank you everyone for taking up the task in finding better hosts for us.

Conny: I could not register at Bilderhoster either. I will peruse picload before I make my final decision.

I have done my best to finding a suitable and reliable 3rd party hosting site..and it has really taken all of my time and energy..but I have a feeling that Imgur will be a good place..and then my computer and those USB Ports and then Servimg.com..and who knows where else I will put them.. lol..one way or the other I won't lose any pictures like so many others have..I feel so bad..

I hope someone files a lawsuit on pb..

I'm off for now..I did my monthly grocery shopping and everything that wasn't going into the refrigerator or freezer is still on the kitchen floor lol..and then it's just about dinner time and left overs lol..

I will be back soon

Crissi, I agree with you about having two hosts. I would feel safer that way. One could serve as storage and I will use the other to post.

And I too spent the almost a week on getting my images sorted out.

TYSM for all the great links!

I don't use photobucket (I use SlickPic, which was mentioned in Tilly's post). They are pretty good, been with them for over a year. I only have the free account which limits you to 1000 pics but their pricing seemed to be very reasonable I thought if someone needed more.

I did go ahead and make an account with Picload.Org and I'm testing it out now (uploaded 3 pics for the June Hunt using them).

I also saved Imgur too as a backup.

I never delete any of my pics, I just move them off my PC onto my external hard drive.

Ok this is what I have to do for you all to get what came in my email...

https://help.imgur.com/hc/article_attachments/115003674046/Screen_Shot_2017-03-13_at_1.32.01_PM.png

I have to do some copy and paste on this as well..  impatient

You can upload images by following these steps: https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/210076663-Upload-Images. After upload, you can hover over an image to get the share links for posting on a forum or sending to someone.

If you'd like to add images to your website or blog, we recommend using Imgur's embed unit to easily make the post visible. More information on finding the embed link can be found here: EMBED-UNIT

You're welcome to use Imgur to host your images, as long as they do not break our Terms of Service (TOS). Imgur's Terms of Service prohibits using Imgur for a content delivery network, hotlinking adult or illegal images, torrents, image hosting for commercial purposes and selling things, or sites which copy Imgur's own functionality. Imgur's intended use is not as a CDN, but rather as a platform to upload, share and browse entertaining images.
