US$ 400.00 PA for them to let you link pictures to another site - No way :twisted:

Any other suggestions for free hosting - i guess they will all charge in the end

I use the pictures which are publicly available on my facebook page.
I right click, select 'copy image address', then paste it into the HTML image tag with an = sign just before it

If you open the image up in a new tab, you can see its in facebook

Yes we are up in arms about it on the LC site :cry:

Someone suggested that when their advertisers find out , they will have to change tack but I think that's it now :twisted:

Someone mentioned Tapatalk but don't know what that is ?

I think it will be the end for forums like this. :cry: - Pics.are a big part of things.

I am not on Facebook (personal choice) and no obvious second choice for pic. hosting .

I've started switching to postimage.org and deleting my Photobucket account. So far so good.

If you don't have/want a FB account...
.
.
FLICKR.com is run buy Yahoo.
I've had a yahoo email account since 2002 (42000 emails :shock: ).
Being able to text search any one of those emails is an amazing resource.
Never cost a cent.
... still find a webmail based interface better for access, than their App.
I don't use FLICKR personally because I pay for website hosting and FTP services for other purposes.

^^^not mine

FLICKR allows you to share BBCode format to select the size of your image and paste into forums

The Photobucket site always looked like malware and unprofessional when you would view peoples albums

I have just joined Flickr and on the LC forum there is a "how to" section and at first I was struggling a bit but now it couldn't be easier :P
I was stubborn about finding another host as I don't like change :lol: but go for it I say :mrgreen:

Post by fred » Fri Dec 22, 2017 1:56 am

i have just read a editing trick on the knackerd photo bucket pictures and it works , if you edit your post and add in ~original after jpg ,your photo re appears ,it would be such a shame to lose ,what to me is a great technical book that can never get re written. old skool suzuki,the uk r1 forum crashed or got hacked ,i didn't realize the kr forum got hacked ,i just thought it crashed ,i haven't a clue ,

Hi Fred
Photobucket kept send me the same email's but I never bothered answering them or logging in to my photobucket account and all my photo links appear to still be intact.
But the tip from Norbo is very handy should things go wrong.
PS. Glad to see your last scan went well.
Cheers
Bernie :)

Cheers Fred,

My last scan showed some abnormalities that they wanted to check out, just had that done on Thursday and everything is OK. 2 years and still clear :)
Back in for more surgery on the 10th January.
No point worrying about things you can't influence!

Glad to see you are doing well and getting on with things.

You can download any images just by right clicking on them and saving them, but it would take an age.

Cheers,
Bernie :)
