free image hosters?
« on: July 09, 2017, 06:34:20 PM »
*points to sig*  I think its time to dump photobucket.  Ive had it for...geeze...15+ years?  And now they've done something that I think will be making 99% of their users leave.

So im looking into another image hoster.  What do you use?  I need space for my art/pictures and organization

Does this have anything to do with why I'm seeing "please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting" more and more the past few days here in the arena?  I have not been able to see lots of photos here lately.

If you have a Yahoo account, you have Flickr.  You just associate the two. :)  Um.   I am not sure what I am going to do either, except not post as much stuff online.

I just signed up with Flickr - it seems to be ok, just took me a while to figure it out! But I think that's just me, my IT skills are pretty rubbish!

*sigh*. I'm having the same problem with Photobucket.

I'm going to need to move my photos over the Flickr. 
Sales on HOLD!

imgur, i've stopped using photobucket years ago. they've recently decided that you need to start paying a fee. someone was saying that photobucket basically said pay the $400 or don't see images on your forum again.

so yeah you can upload for free to photobucket, but now you have to pay to show them anywhere

This, yeah.  A bunch of people pretty much exploded on PI  about it.  Said we had til the 20th...I guess they started early.

How is Imgur for organization and space?

Yes Photobucket is a thing of the past for a lot of us, as of right now. They decided to disable third-party hosting in hopes of making the money that their advertising isn't doing.

PB isn't really trying to hit people who use forums or share their personal photos, like you and me. There are big companies out there that use photobucket for THOUSANDS of images when they sell items on Amazon.com or ebay.com. Photobucket is trying to hit these companies, the big boys who won't mind paying $400 a year if it means they don't have to re-do thousands of items for sale on those sites.

Imgur as far as I'm aware does not allow you to create an account and store photos for personal use, the way photobucket does? Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think with Imagur you just upload a photo/image and you have to save the URL. It doesn't get erased but it doesn't save itself to a certain account, either.

I gave in and just bought a domain for hosting my photos. -_- I dunno if this might be a temporary thing with PB, maybe they'll go back on their plan if there's enough negative backlash, but I'm not waiting around to see because that might take a long time to sort itself out.

This isn't quite true. You can have an account with imgur and manage your images with albums, etc. I don't have one so I can't speak about the interface.

you can also upload an image to imgur without an account and that only stays up for 6months. (basically a quick share)

Oh thanks for the clarification banditpony, sounds like I overheard info about the two different versions of uploads and thought they were the same thing.

But I can share the photo with others with a link, whenever I want to, right? (not just when you upload)

Yes.

You can share an image at anytime.

If you don't have an account you'll need to bookmark the url.

If you have an account you can browse your images and grab the code like any other image hosting site.
