With the max exodus from Photobucket due to their extortionist practices and deleting 3rd party photos, which hosting site is the best option now? Has one hosting site come out on top, or are you guys still using a wide variety of hosts?

Their entire website has been down worldwide since yesterday and it is just another nail in their coffin, if that lid hasn't been complete shut already.

Imgur works great for me John, Log in, Create folders, Click on share links on the photo you wanna share, Click copy on the BB code link and paste it in your post,

One thing to do is put an "L" at the end of the link just before the .JPG to keep the picture in size, so that you're not scrolling around the page to see the pic.

E.G. I put the **** in so you would see the L and the end

Thanks Paul. I'll take care of that tomorrow.

The site is still offline and there are a lot of pissed off people. People who paid $399 are wondering if the site is gone for good. Given how terrible the site is on a good day I can't see why anyone would pay to use it.

I was able to get in to PB just now 6AM.

But I also use Imgur since the debacle.

I would really like to buy my own damn www for hosting pics because I take alot of them. Everything backs up to google photos with "special" folders there also for "special" categories and events. I wish there was an easy way to use google photos to share on sites like this. I think google will be here for a while.
