    Testing a new photo hosting website

    Now that Photobucket wants a king's ransom to host photos for third-party site, I dropped my account with the basticks immediately. After reading a bunch, I decided on trying Postimage: https://postimg.org. Many links for either thumbnail or full size images are under the Share tab. One has to send Postimage one's email and they will send you a password via the email address. One can then log-in using one's email and the password sent via email. Photobucket did not just bite off their foot to save their arse, they bit off their leg. I hope they go under. As a note, if one clicks on the image one is taken to my Postimage site where one can click + for the full sized image. It all worked pretty well on one of my modeling forums that uses a different type of link.

    The photos are of my build of the 1/72 scale Academy Spitfire Mk XIVc.

    After Imageshack went pay-to-play, Photobucket had become my sole image host. Now that they are pay-to-play, I've dropped them. Every forum I go to that has user posted images is now littered with the Photobucket image telling them to upgrade their account.

    Ditto here, been using Photobucket since 2006. When they became ransomware, I dropped the SOBs then and there. Try using the Postimage site linked in my head Post, works for me so far.
