Photo hosting location?
« on: October 21, 2017, 12:44:37 PM »
Hey guys,
I'm curious as to where you are hosting your photos, that you link to for use in forums and such.
I have used Photobucket in the past but I see that they have a new policy, which sounds very expensive for a small time user like myself.
I know I could do a Google search, which I have, but I would rather hear from the folks here so I know the suggestions are current and relevant.
I don't mind paying a small monthly fee if that is a good option.
Thanks, Scott

Agreed on Imgur. Very easy to use, no-nonsense way of hosting images. I use it for every forum where I have to provide my own hosting of images.

I second on imgur, it's very easy to use and it doesn't get bog down with ads like photobucket

Cool, somehow I missed that, as I was searching for "image hosting" not "sharing" which I understand now is one of the same.
I'm still open to other options.
Thanks, Scott

In case you need to make albums with your pics, flickr is good choice. Only inconvenience is yahoo mail account.
