Photobucket, what's going on?
« on: September 10, 2017, 06:24:59 PM »
So I've just noticed that I can no longer post third party ie here. What's happened? That want $399 dollers just so I can share my own images  ;D ;D ;D
Does anyone have any other photo host recommendations?

I used Photobucket for years for all my photography but when it started to get really slow and unstable, I switched to Imgur.  I use Photoshop for resizing then upload the image to Imgur. It has a lot of options including one for posting to forums and noticeboards etc. I've been using it for two or three years now and it works fine.

Question please--How do I find the option list for posting to forums and noticeboards? and how do I use it once found.

Once you have your images uploaded on Imgur, click on the one you want to post to the forum. It will open up as a single image and on the right hand side of the page, there is a full list of options. The one you want is BBC Code. Click the blue COPY box on the right. Go to the forum and to paste your picture hold down control then press V . The control panel is shown below.
