Posting pictures now that Photobucket is completely effed?
« on: January 06, 2020, 01:00:38 pm »
I tried searching first as I'm sure this has been brought up already, but my search proved unsuccessful.

Anyway, what's the go to for photo storage/sharing now that Photobucket screwed over all of their users. I can't see my photo's there and can't seem to do anything to get them back. Now of course my build threads have zero pictures in them.

I know flickr is an option. How are others finding it? Are there any superior option's that others are using?

Imgur/Flickr are my usual go-to.
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

Photobucket has been spamming my email for at least 2 years now saying my account has too many pictures and they'll be disabling it if I don't pay for the service. It still works, though.

I use Imgur for quick & dirty uploads, and Flickr for anything I want to keep (i.e. build thread and Forester pics, anything from my DSLR). I like Flickr's organization into albums, and I can publish directly from Lightroom to a new album. I really want to keep using it, but they're pissing me off with how few pics you can have uploaded without going Pro, so I haven't spent the $50 to upgrade yet...
