Photobucket have changed their terms and conditions, they now want you to pay to be able to use the links to post on this and other sites. There are other free sites available but the pain is all the images we historically have on here that use PB are lost until we move them or cough up.

Hopefully Photobucket will see sense and abolish the upgrade charges.

Been trying alternatives for hosting pictures, Flickr and Imgur.
https://www.flickr.com/
https://imgur.com/

Out of the two I found imgur was easier and quicker to use.

As for photobucket I have deleted all my pictures stored with them, have replaced some of the more interesting ones on my old posts with replacement pictures on the new hosts.
