Photobucket now charging for hotlinks
« on: July 16, 2017, 07:29:48 pm »
Unfortunately, Photobucket, with little or no warning, now demands about 399.99 to permit hotlinking of images.  Anyone intending on posting images ot the board should look for another provider.

Tell me about it, I've had to switch to Drop Box for image hosting, but it's not a perfect solution.

Secretprojects offers free hosting of unlimited numbers of pic, only limitation is you can't use them elsewhere.

People on other forums have started using Imgur www.imgur.com.  It seems to be a popular replacement for PB.
