Thumbs down Photobucket woes

This has been effecting forums across the net for a few weeks now, as Photobucket slowly disables direct-linking of its free accounts. My account just got hit this week, so I apologize in advance for my images inevitably breaking!

I'll be fixing things slowly but surely...my plan was to simply use Google Photos for image hosting, but the urls there are very, very long...as in, too long for me to use in my signature here on PHF. I've heard Flickr being talked about as a good option, but I'm hesitating to create a new account anywhere.

I just wanted to post to warn anyone who has an account that hasn't been hit yet! I was able to download my old albums pretty easily before my account's links were disabled, but I had two more albums to download and I had to do it image by image now. So sad, because I've had a Photobucket account since the early 2000s...but I've deleted it now that I can't use the images! You can of course pay to upgrade your account...but the plan prices are not amounts I'm willing to pay!

What about dropshots? Is that still a viable image hosting site? ... I think I have an account on there, but it has been forever and a day since using/looking into it. Hmm, might have to do some digging.

A forum/game that I'm most active on also talked about this annoying problem, a few people seemed to like something called 'imgur'. I've never used it myself, I host pictures from my websites, but it's an option to check out.

Oh I was wondering what had been happening to images hosted on Photobucket. Well that stinks.

Sorry that happened to you, Lila!
I remember when Dropbox used to be a "popular" image hosting site for here,
so much so that I got a dropbox, but have barely used it since then. I know that the free accounts are definitely given less space to host, but it's still an idea if you're looking for an alternative!

Oh yes, I was upset to find this news in my email inbox not too long ago. It would take forever to go through my albums and re-upload every photo on another hosing site - such a shame. At the moment, the only alternatives I can think of are Dropbox and Imgur, but if anyone else has a better suggestion, I'd be glad to hear about it.
