This is all very interesting, thanks for all the useful info. As stated above, I personally use PostImage.org. They are free for the moment, but are in the process of putting into place a paid service. You can read more about it on their blog: https://blog.postimage.org/

Hosting images costs a huge amount in money, space and bandwidth, so I can understand having to pay, but Photobucket are asking an extortionate amount - it's just too much for most people! Advertising just doesn't cut it any more because so many people use ad-blockers.

I agree that one should always keep backups of any pictures they use for any website, just in case! I've been caught out by ImageShack, even though I had a premium account!

You know..I don't mind having an account to be able to offer direct links..as long as it's free and we can use it as 3rd party hosting..

I can't afford to pay a thing..so when the time comes that all these other free 3rd party hosting sites like Imgur..starts charging..then I will be omgosh..I don't know...

I know as long as you don't have more than 32 folders in Servimg.com..then it is unlimited...I have been putting folders and then 25 pictures in each folder..then it said..you can't have more than 32 folders..went to Forumotion and asked them about it..and they asked me..it unlimited why are you using the browser instead of your website..and I said..well I was putting everything on my computer and then uploading them..to folders..I can't remember the response back I got hehe..if any lol.


Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful

Yikes! Another one? I hope mine doesn't decide to do that! I have a ton of pics for my Second Life Marketplace Store, and those items when I sell something I can eventually exchange the game money into RL money, so I gotta have pics of my things!

My brother got me a domain and space on his servers...

...I'm just waiting for him to send me the instructions on how to use it.

...and what it is going to cost me, heheh :D

I'm grateful there are still some free image hosting sites that allow 3rd party imaging...

...however, I really hope that as more and more sites go to a pay version for image hosting, they will come up with really low prices.



Thank you, Crissi, for my beautiful signature <3

You are really fortunate Suzanne..... wish I could do something like that too.
I understand that bandwidth costs money, and might even be willing to pay if the costs are low enough, but if that is all going to disappear the sims world is going to be one big empty void, and a very lonely world at that!!

From what I understand, Anita...

...Domain costs are $10-$12 per year (US$).

...Space (and the necessary bandwidth), is a different cost, but shouldn't exceed $10-$20 per month, and there are most likely deals to be had now because of Photobucket.

...You may be able to find something under $10 per month. <3

I get that that won't resolve the issue for many people, but it may help some. :)

Maybe we need to do a search for 3rd party image hosting sites. I have not done that yet.

nickpic.host is what I use now.  The owner created it due to photobucket's decision and while you do need an account to upload pictures, it's a painless process since he allows these images to be linked anywhere.

I sadly can't link it since I have to wait 7 days to do that since I'm new XD

But you can type in nickpic.host in the browser and it should pop up since it immediately goes to the site.
