      PhotoBucket are no longer permitting 3rd party hosting   01/07/17

      As most of you are now painfully aware, Photobucket (PB) are stopping/have stopped allowing their members to link their accumulated years of photos into forums and the like, which they call 3rd party linking.  You can give them a non-refundable $399 a year to allow links, but I doubt that many will be rushing to take them up on that offer.  If you've previously paid them for the Pro account, it looks like you've got until your renewal to find another place to host your files, but you too will be subject to this ban unless you fork over a lot of cash.   PB seem to be making a concerted move to another type of customer, having been the butt of much displeasure over the years of a constantly worsening user interface, sloth and advertising pop-ups, with the result that they clearly don't give a hoot about the free members anymore.  If you don't have web space included in your internet package, you need to start looking for another photo host, but choose carefully, as some may follow suit and ditch their "free" members at some point.  The lesson there is keep local backups on your hard drive of everything you upload, so you can walk away if the same thing happens.   There's a thread on the subject here, so please use that to curse them, look for solutions or generall grouse about their mental capacity.   Not a nice situation for the forum users that hosted all their photos there, and there will now be a host of useless threads that relied heavily on photos from PB, but as there's not much we can do other than petition for a more equitable solution, I suggest we make the best of what we have and move on.  One thing is for certain.  It won't win them any friends, but they may not care at this point.    Mike.

If you share via the BB Code you can get the picture title and description as well.

Go to your Flickr Photostream or Album,

select the picture that you want to share here

at the bottom left hand side under your picture are 5 symbols,

click the middle 'right hand arrow' symbol,

a window opens up with four options, select BBCode, and you can choose size, I use 'medium 800x...', or sometimes Large '1024x...'

Right click on the blue highlighted text box, 'copy', and the right hand click 'paste' in your open forum post.

If I make just one photo 'Public', so that I can have it in a thread; if people click on that photo,  can they then go and look at all the photographs in my Photostream?


Even I've set them all as private? Is the one I made 'public' kind of a 'door in'?


Tony, if you upload a 'public' image to the forum, your other private pictures should remain private.




I've been using Flickr for years and it is such a great hosting tool.
