OK so according to people on some of the FB groups I'm in photo bucket (which is where I store my pics) is now charging,    you can still store pics but it cost for you to link them to other sources as of wed, old links are grandfathered in but they say the fee to continue doing so  is $400 a yr,  so what other FREE avenues are there for storing pics, I have a flickr account but have never been able to link pics from it, anybody know the trick, options please, thanks `

I used PB for years until they went crazy with the ads. The last couple days, I've been copying all my PB pic's to an external hard drive in case they lock me out. I switched to IMGUR a few years ago although I can't say that I recommend them either.

SmugMug is a good choice as well, and it helps support ADVrider.

Here is my solution.  I have been using it since 2008 an have about 10,000 pics on it (yep, 10,000...  yep, almost 10 years... yep, trouble free...)

Open a free https://www.blogger.com account.

Send the pic up as a blog post, then link to the image.

As an example, here is a pic I took with my Blackberry phone in early 2009.  (Cell phone cameras have come a long way!)

Yes, Photobucket has caused quite a stir! All my images are on Photobucket, so all my ride reports are no longer displaying the photos which I spent so much time cropping and editing.
I downloaded all my albums from Photobucket to my hard drive.
Thank you for the great suggestions for alternative image hosting! I have not yet decided what I'll do.
Keep looking for alternative hosts!
Cheers, Kosmic

Is there a way to download complete albums? If so, I haven't figured it out yet. I've been downloading pictures individually.

Thanks for the answers gentlemen,  clap I might have to try Voltar's way, I know people use flickr for this I  would love  to figure out how, Kosmic my photos are still showing and I was told old links are grandfathered in, plus I only store a resized copy of my pics on there, so I still have the originals plus a copy of the resized ones, and I'm only interested in free ways of doing this, as I don't have a steady, and most of the time no income at all with my ministry, Kosmic you just need to come up with a place for members to store pics, for this forum only of course  lol

Yes, if you go to your list of albums, click on an album, then look to the right side of the web page you should see a section called "Actions".
Under Actions there is a "Download Album" link.

If the picture you are linking is one of an overweight man in a speedo standing in with one foot in a aquarium full of axle grease and the other foot standing on a Sport Illustrated swimsuit addition cover then all is working perfectly.

I just got the word from them as well and I'll be headed back over to SMUGMUG for Baldy. What a big fat amount of work to file manage all those pics now. Bummer.

Hi TN, go ahead and edit your post, and you will see how I fixed your photo.
You just have to put the link in between the image tags.
Cheers!
