I guess I'll be switching to DA's Sta.sh for some things... I gave up on ImageShack a long time ago and kind of stopped using Photobucket because it was laggy. I use Gyazo for quick share of things but after x amount of time you cannot access those photos again till you pay a subscription.

Google has Google Photos but I haven't tried it... though I know I have been able to get photo links for Google drive and Microsoft's onedrive but really haven't had a need to do so... I really dislike yahoo so I don't have their image uploader...


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.

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)
Yep I just looked at Imgur and there is a place where you can sign up. You can register with social media or just flat out create an account XD

I've never used photobucked. I opened a private, password protected side blog on tumblr that I post images to and just link from there  :shrug:

Yeah it sucks. Actually I think Photobucket did that on purpose... Every time I try to save an image there, it saves to my computer as a broken image. It did that right after they announced they would be charging people for 3rd party hosting.

terrible I wonder if it's even worth contacting them.. which I doubt I can

Edit: ok the site is working again... but I have a feeling it's going to break once more at some point

When you save images from photobucket to your computer, can you look at them on your computer? Or is it a broken image? Now I'm wondering if it's my computer and not pb at all...

I was hoping to find answers in this thread to my image hosting probs now that PB has gone rogue, but I'm still confused!!

ETA:  I have started a Flickr account but stupid PB won't let me remove any of my photos.

I just signed up for Imgur. It's great so far! No pesky ads popping up 3 times....or at all so far.

I just signed up for Flickr. Their free account is pretty generous. Up to 1TB of image capacity, with images allowed of up to 200MB each. For reference, the images I usually upload are like 10MB. AND, you can embed images on third party sites for free, as far as I can tell.

Here's a test image to see if it works. Can everyone see this?

I use Imagebam for image hosting. Haven't really had an issue with it. @PinkRockSugar, your image isn't there anymore it seems.

I think it broke because I moved the image to an album on my flickr. Can you see it now?

Nope. Says "This photo is no longer available".
