Reccommend a new image hosting site please?

Postby Insurgent » Wed Aug 16, 2017 4:28 pm

Because Photobucket went greedy, I tried hosting my pics on my facebook messenger, as I don't want them to appear and start spamming my friends walls. But it seems they keep dissapearing and changing to just the word IMAGE. Like my sig.



So.

Can folks recomend a good website for hosting my photos, that let me post on forums and such for free, without being complicated to do it? I know there's a couple, but I was just wondering which was most user friendly? Any limits or such things to be aware of?

I've heard a lot of people are moving towards Imgur

Facebook CAN work, but you need to set your albums to public (not often a good idea as I learnt recently, **** you SJW's).

Alternatively, set up a Facebook page and share them there. You can keep your personal details private that way.

Thanks. That's one I've not heard of, but it seems easy enough to use.

Soooooooo I'm giving this a bump to see if there are any alternatives to Imgur.

I'm not overly happy with the semi-social media aspect of it, and I'm really not happy with the App. Uploading to a existing folder seems to be all but impossible on the App, which means I have to get on the computer to move things.

Imgur was a de facto "Reddit image hosting" service until Reddit started doing their own. I haven't used them myself but I can see it as a pretty ok solution for some time.

Personally, I just pony up the $7 every few months for Flickr Pro. I think Amazon Prime also includes some image hosting but not sure if it does the quick and dirty hotlinking us message board types use.

I post a lot of my pics from my phone and few sites/app work well that way.

After the photobucket debacle Ive landed on imgbb.com

I've been real happy with the and they can generate bbcode links (among the many other options) making copying and pasting to the boards a breeze. Another nice feature is that they do not lower the resolution of your images.
