Photo Bucket?

Postby wonkywheel » 02 Jul 2017 20:16

Hi all,
I went to use photo bucket to put more photo's of my build on the forum. I had a banner come up to say read the revised terms and conditions.
As far as I can see, it is no longer a free service for 3rd party hosting of images or image linking. If I contravene the rules my free account is frozen and I can only access my library by paying a subscription. :shock:
Does anyone know of another similar site that I can use to be able to link my pictures to the forum, or have I got it all wrong :roll:

This is very bad news because many people have hosted pictures for trip reports, rebuild reports, all sorts of things on various forums.

On RV.net Photobucket has been the photo-hosting site of choice and members have encouraged each other to use it. What that means is that now lots of threads with useful information and photos are now virtually useless. A friend of mine D started a thread for his Avion rebuild a few years ago, and it has been expanded by other owners and became the go-to place for information using and restoring these historic campers. Now this resource is pretty much useless because the pictures of the rebuilds, accessories, modifications, etc. are replaced by a notice stating "Please update your account..." :roll: .

Google have their own Picasa but can't imagine imposing a charge to store images there would really do them any favours can you?
