    So, I've been using photobucket forever, simply because it was convenient for me to use, apparently they've decided to crack down on allowing people to use them as a website to link photos to, so they're no longer convenient and I sure as shit ain't paying them no 39.99 a month for something I might use three or four times a year, on average. Anyone know a good free image hosting website that isn't full of it's shit, I might be willing to pay 5 bucks a year, as much as I use the service, I'd likely balk at 40 a year because honestly, I don't use it that frequently, I've been with them since 97 and over that time I've barely filled up 23% of the storage they offer for free. At least 8% of that is miscellaneous BS I've uploaded simply because it wouldn't link from the original website. So fuck photobucket, I might've been willing to give a nod to their pocketbooks if they were reasonable, but from the sound of it, in order to continue using the service as I have, I gotta take up their gold package and they can suck wet donkey dong in that case.

    same as Aspius, imgur has been my go to for a while now. Since I don't generally host any of my photography work outside of personal storage spaces for clients to get to I haven't really kept up with what the good options are for more open storage spaces for images, if you do find any others that seem good I'm all ears for other options myself.

    So, apparently the issue with the image hosting thing is because Photobucket has grown greedy, and is now requiring people to sign up for premium to use their service for even the minimal amount of '3rd party' hosting that is comprised by having a signature used from their website. Anyone using photobucket for this purpose will now end up with an idiotic message telling them they must sign up for premium in order to continue this service. I hope those fuckers die in fire.
