Since Photobucket has removed my ability to link images hosted to forums like TFNZ, I am looking around for another source.

I have both OneDrive and Google Photos, but neither allow direct image linking (I can paste a URL - I believe to a shared account https://goo.gl/photos/9YDAsk18Siu7HkCx5)

Anyone know of alternatives?

Or, does anyone know how to set up a website (I own the domain) so I can drop images into that and then direct link?

Another test via OneDrive - image embedding

Seems Imgur is ok at the moment; however they have been experimenting with a new hotlinking display that links to other similar pictures.
There terms of service is also a bit vague, hinting that hotlinking is not ok - but it seems to be referencing website use rather than forums

Anyway, have signed up
Can't be bothered fixing all my old PB links on old posts so they can stay as is

Now that Photobucket's paywalling its customers out, think I'll be making the shift soon too. Silly thing for them to do considering they themselves promoted the 3rd party linking by generating the various IMG hyperlinks we could copy and paste wherever we wanted. I know it's their hardware, but the images are still ours.

Oh well. The ridiculous layers over layers of ads and full screen ads that you had to close every screen was driving me up the wall anyway.

But just an idea, what would it take to host a local server for our own image hosting?

Many thanks!

Strange I uploaded this from photobucket ?

Have they changed their minds?
Or is it a glitch and they'll take it off again?
I hope they've put things right again.

Hi All
How can I upgrade my photobucket account so that I can link my photos to a post in TFNZ?
Thanks for the help!
