    Jeez I remember back when I had to use photobucket to post pics here on Sherdog in the mid-00s. Haven't used it since, thank jebus

    I stopped using photobucket years ago when they made it more difficult to upload simple images.

    Absolutely ridiculous to charge that much for embedding. Unbelievable that some marks are actually going to pay that. I stopped using Photobucket a few years ago when the ads got so bad that I couldn't even get a page to load, sometimes couldn't even log in, so many pop up video ads made the site unusable. I just use this site now, really easy: http://www.picresize.com/

    The site is counter intuitive.

    The link they provide is not the link you should use, you have to grab the link from the actual image.

    It's far from flawless, but as I upload and post thousands of images, my standards are a lot higher.The little things make a difference.

    They already give you the bb code for forums once it's on your account. All you have to do is copy & paste that link without doing anything else here. It also loads significantly faster than Photobucket

    Sorry, but he's right. People are doing it wrong

    So... You have to create an account for it to be flawless.

    Probably should have opened with that.

    You don't need an account for that url either, it's already displayed to you

    With these sharing sites folding or now charging usage fees, maybe the big data bubble has finally burst. This is a good thing.

    When I've used imgur the only url displayed is the one that presents the framed image. As I've used more than a dozen different services, I typically look for one that requires the least amount of effort. As I have signed up more than one service that has ceased to exist, I'm tired of creating accounts; Photobucket was the last I created and that was many, many years ago.

    I have an enormous amount of experience capturing, manipulating and storing images on the internet. Maybe I'm just old and bitter, but I've seen too many services start out fantastic and then monetize, or vanish. No reason to think this won't happen with imgur, so I'm not going to create my thousandth image account and cross my fingers.

    works flawless for anyone who just wanna upload some pic here and there and knows how to use it, once you learn you dont forget :p


    small price to pay for not having to deal with bandwidth and external link issues dont you think, but whatever I guess, if you upload and post thousands of images maybe you should invest in a cheap service, if its free why bother complaining IMHO

    Its simplicity itself to bypass their no download.

    But its annoying that they have taken this road. At those prices, who the hell is going to pay?

    I use divshare because you can upload nudes without them taking them down
