Try to use PIP at any cost. I know some just can not get it to work no matter what they try.

Another alternative I have used when PIP is acting up is PostImage.org. It is a non-profit that's sole purpose is to host images for free to post on message boards.

When you upload a picture, click on thh preview thumbnail, and then right click and choose copy image location. That will give you the full link to the picture that you can then use the IMG tag here to view.

I have a few pictures scattered around in my thread, that are over 5 years old I uploaded to there, and they are still working perfectly

Here is a photo I uploaded to there back in 2010:

Been there, done that. IMO, the free image hosting is less of a hassle.

Flickr's interface is a mess for older computers, but it's been my go-to for the last decade. Highly recommend them, they at least don't mess with image quality.

Imgur is also a good alternative if you don't want to create an account. Images are compressed, though; and I'm not sure how permanent uploads are.

Facebook updates image URL's periodically and I've had photos embedded here from Facebook break after a few months to a year. Probably the same for Twitter, G+ and other social media.

I am using this one (imgur)
http://imgur.com

A freebie, and it's OK to use direct links and embed images directly in forum posts. At least, it is still OK. I only started using it recently. I had been using some other hosting site, and another one even before that. But they both pulled the rug out from under me.


I also use use Internet Archive
https://archive.org

Also, a freebie, and I have used it for hosting images and also sound files and other file formats.

My storage is at 1% - and all my photos here are gone. I can re-post with PIP, but not from work.

Photobucket was the only option I had if I'm not in front of my home PC (which is rare)

I may just end up only using PIP for original photos, which will limit my image posts on PFF, and delay them by days for sure.
On the road I could use something that has a good mobile interface when I have wifi.

What seemingly reliable host works well on mobile?

When you sign up, the terms of service say that Photobucket takes charge of your photo album and can do with it as they please. Now they wish to charge an exorbitant fee for them to use your stuff. That just won't fly on this end. I've got two words for them and the last word is you!

I considered using my own server to host, and just setting it up to automatically take the images provided in whatever format, reduce the density and size as needed, then return a JPG and a link, but anything hosted on this site will be here as the site is here. Images hosted elsewhere will go away. We have lost a lot of images, due to external hosting.

This is a huge hit to the forum! Some of the long running threads have been destroyed, they look deserted. That really blows, even if everyone who used Photobucket switched over to PiP ( I don't even think it can be done by Apple users) it would be nearly impossible to track down every post you started or replied to with a photo and replace it with the photo you "think" was there.... wow, insert shaking my head emoji here.

I think Cliff should make it so we can post pics directly on this site. I'd rather give him the money than a host site.

Well, sure....if you can get reliable, free image hosting that is guaranteed to not disappear in 5-10 years, ruining all of your threads. Personally, I learned my lesson with Photobucket. I will not be entrusting my photos and links to another 3rd party company when I can just as easily maintain and host them myself.

Other than initial setup of the sever, I don't find uploading and manipulating photos to be any more difficult than with PB. Especially given their cancerous, ad-heavy site. It was extremely difficult to work with. I upload the photos from my phone via FTP over SSH and then I open a VNC connection to the server to resize them afterward. I have VNC clients on my laptop as well as my phone, though I obviously prefer the laptop. I could always resize them first, I just find it easier to upload a dozen pictures or so and then do a batch resize with one of those right-click tools in Windows. Most of the pictures are resized to around ~250K, so bandwidth requirement is pretty minimal for cable internet.

Technically, one doesn't even need to own their own domain. They could just use a DDNS service and they would be provided with a URL to use.

I suppose it's still really only an option for the more tech-savvy users. I keep thinking that people have and use desktop computers at home with a wired network, and that's not correct; this isn't the early '00's anymore. I'm discovering that more people are literally only using WiFi and phones/tablets at home, for their 'computing' needs. I just had this discussion with a friend the other day. I think it was precipitated by my lack of enthusiasm about Verizon's choice a few years ago to focus on '5G' wireless and halt their FiOS build-out. I couldn't possibly care less about faster LTE on my phone. I still need to stream my music library from somewhere when I'm on the road, and that somewhere is my house. Still need a decent internet connection there.

The forum really got the shaft on the Photobucket deal. With one stroke of the keyboard they wiped out over a million links on the web, all of my archived posts and most of the construction zone. Photobucket could have gotten rich by imposing a $10 yearly fee to non-commerial users but $400 is something that the average user won't pay. Looking online there are many other image hosting sights. If you don't save your pictures on your computer or on a memory stick as I do, you can download them from photobucket and use another site.

I read it was more like a BILLION.

But amazingly my account is still hot-linking and I most certainly did not pay the ransom... I mean fee. Which is convenient because I have an eBay auction that is using it as we speak.

Most definitely only for tech savvy users. An IT guy at work talked me into trying it and I got in over my head real quick.

As for streaming music most people don't even store their own music anymore. I stream from Pandora and I use the free service. So it runs ads I don't care as long as it's free.

Test... I've been using photobucket for 10+ years now and have noticed a steady increase in ads the past few years. They've gotten so bad I stopped uploading any pics the past year. Takes too long to load up and then WHAM all these extra pop ups now that say "Continue to site" Ready to move to another server and delete everything from Photobucket is possible. I got a lot of pics linked to it on my motor swap thread. all that lost no probably.



just went through some old thread and sure enough, all pics are blocked, even my sig is.. dam you Photobucket!

Though this is listed in their announcement, heavy users who are paying have been cut also, so that 2018 deadline is not universal.

I'm not holding my breath, but I'm not paying either and my hotlinking is still working as of right now. I understand it's a business decision but it was handled very poorly.

From Wikipedia:

"History

Photobucket was founded in 2003 by Alex Welch and Darren Crystal and received funding from Trinity Ventures.[7][8] It was acquired by Fox Interactive Media in 2007.

In December 2009, Fox's parent company, News Corp, sold Photobucket to Seattle mobile imaging startup Ontela. Ontela then renamed itself Photobucket Inc. and continues to operate as Photobucket.[9]

In June 2010, Photobucket was named in the Lead411's Hottest Seattle Companies list.[10]

On June 28, 2017, Photobucket changed its Terms of Use regarding free accounts and third party hosting (hosting on forums, eBay, etc). Only the most expensive plan, at $399.99 per year, now permits third party hosting and linking to forums.[11] Photobucket made this change with no input or consultation with their current users, or the public. Adding this to photobuckets use of excessive pop-up ads, scams, clickbait advertisements, and in some cases viruses embedded in ads, the number of active account quickly decreased.[citation needed]

This new business model has caused thousands of forum DIY's and write-ups with explanatory pictures to be rendered useless. About 500 words into the linked document was a declaration that free accounts would no longer permit image-linking to third-party sites. eBay and Etsy have also been affected, in addition to many forums and blogs. Thousands of images promoting goods sold on Amazon and other shopping sites have been removed after the photo-sharing service changed its terms.

Twitter partnership

Twitter announced in June 2011 that Photobucket will become the default photo sharing platform for Twitter.[12] According to a report by Sysomos, 2.25M images are shared on Twitter daily, which accounts for 1.25% of all Tweets posted.[13] Just before the announcement, TwitPic and Yfrog were the leading photo-sharing services."


-

...So if twitter is still allowed and not considered a third party ( I have no idea) , I wonder if they probably have enough income from that and just decided we don't need the rest of you?

I've been with photobucket since new, and posted all my photos on there from my phone to link here on the forum. All of those links are now broken. I also back up to google photos, but I don't have the nice organization that I've established on PB. I've been DLing all my thousands and thousands of pictures to my computer, but even that is a real PITA. Ah well. My threads here will stay broken, as I don't have the patience to fix them.

Google photos attempt:
Nope...

My Photobucket linking is dead now also. They are crazy if they think I'm paying that much a year when I've been with them forever. Time to find something else...

I can not figure out how to post a picture here using the iPhone app for Flickr. Photobucket made it real easy when on an iPhone/iPad which is pretty much all I use.

That image you posted is great, but 2048 pixels in width is way too wide for a forum post. It destroys the formatting of the entire page.

PIP allows a maximum image width here of 1024 pixels... for a reason!

If you are unable to resize your image(s), then please at least add "THUMB" to the first IMG tag (with a space in between).

CLICK FOR FULL SIZE




You should have seen it before I resized it to that size..lol. I probably won't be posting pictures much anymore. To be honest I'm not on here much now that I have wife/kids. Still enjoy my car. I was trying to find a good solution so I could fix some of my older posts. I really don't think anyone cares that much anyway. I would love to use pip but as I said before it will not work on iPhone/iPad.

Found an image editer that seems to work.

Nobody's going to be able to answer that exactly.... but there are no doubt several options. I've been using IrfanView for years.

You guys catch TargaTrouble 's post about an add-on for Chrome that bypasses Photobucket's "no hot linking" ?
https://chrome.google.com/w...ihbemealioapbifiaedg

There's one for Firefox too:
https://addons.mozilla.org/...don/photobucket-fix/

Won't fix it for everybody, but will let you view threads with photobucket pics already in them.

What's wrong with just using PIP?

The google chrome extension fix worked.

All of my Photobucket photos are on my computer and still there. Just need an image host. It would not be that bad if Photobucket's new fee was $25 /yr but $400 is highway robbery. I make zero money by using Photobucket to post images and they get to sell all the images as their own stock . I always just used it to share images only with friends and on a couple of forums.



The part most are forgetting while they are complaining is, photobucket is a business, one that needs to make money.. Now back when they started, most forums that the photo's got linked into were owned by a person or persons into that model car or that type racing.. That changed, now most are owned by a big business (autoguide/etc) and they are making big money off the forum and the photo's photobucket is hosting, getting membership fees at some forums AND ad dollars, off those build threads, tech threads, how to threads, and event photo's.. Forums for the most part are not a guy that happens to like a model car and has build a forum for it..
In there eyes why should they be giving out free hosting to big companies that are making money hand over fist , so they stopped it, all these forums can add a way to upload photo's why they didn't and haven't is the huge bandwidth and storage needed and they don't want to have to pay it..
How many forums you go to that was a car dudes forum that is now owned by a large business, I know the team chevelle, team nova, team Camaro, team impala, yellow bullet and a few olds forums and g body forums that are now part of a large business.. not some guy in his spare time with a forum anymore..
I don't blame photobucket one bit.. The threads on forums are not destroyed because of photobucket, they are because the forum didn't want to have to pay to upload and host the photo's on their servers.. They road the free gravy train.. Photobuckets reason for starting up was to host photo's for the little personal people/accounts, and pay accounts for those using it for a business as forums went from a guy in his den running owning it to a big company in Canada owning them.. the hot linking of photo's was being used to make money.. Stop blaming the effect and blame the true cause.
No one here would run a business in the red requiring tons of customer pissing off pop up ads, while other companies are profiting from your resources .. you'd put a stop to it also..
Once all the accounts that have hundreds if not thousands of hot links are left idle and the hot links are cut (they are not cut at the moment as they are showing the you need to upgrade jpeg, when cut you will not even get that) .
You can move to other hosting but they to will follow this lead, they have to.. they all are loosing money allowing the free hot linking..
How much bandwidth you think a photo in a "girls with cars" thread cost a year ? just one photo that gets a few million views every 1/4?
Or the show your car thread, or meme thread/etc forget the tech threads that get clobbered by search engine bots, daily..
