I have been using Flickr for a long time and it seems to work well for posting on forums. 1 TB of photos free. It's part of Yahoo and I've had a Yahoo email address since the 90s. Hardly ever use the email any more, but love Flickr.

I usually edit out some of the link when I post, but here is the standard photo sharing link as "BB Code" set to 800x450 resolution:

There are a lots of options for sharing, such as BB code, embed, direct link, sharing a selection, or folder, etc.

Thanks Tom. I keep getting emails from them for promotions to use their website. Bye bye dumbos! Say hello to Blockbuster when you're down there

Stolen from my Superduke site .

Just passing this on, not tested myself yet.

If you're using Google Chrome, go to the three dots on the right side of the screen and click them. A drop down should appear. Hover your mouse over "More Tools," and when the next drop down appears, click on extensions. Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get more extensions." In the search box, type "Photobucket Fix," and hit enter. Click the install button and once it's done, you should be able to see photobucket pictures again.

For FireFox users, click on the three bars on the right side of the screen, then click on add ons. Click search for "photobucket hotlink" and click install. Same result.

Might work out for those using those browsers.

Photobucket images have been restored:
https://www.denver post.com/2018/05/17/photobucket-image-hosting-plans/

Too little, too late? I've already switched to alternate image hosting, but at least all of the old pictures are back up.

P.S. Seriously, Pelican? Blocking links to the Denver Post website?

I got an email from them yesterday about their new management team and pricing. I guess it took them a year to realize the CEO was an idiot. I agree, a little too late. I am tempted to get my old threads back to normal though.

Although My photos were never taken down like so many, my 2-Gig Plus No-ads account will still not let me start a new link to a third party. I do see they have a new special limited time offer for $19.99 for 3rd party hosting. or $1.99 per month for 10 Gig.
