      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.

Brief guide to using Flickr

30 posts in this topic

Right, I seem to have figured it out.

Instead of copying the link into the 'insert image from URL' box I just paste it directly into this dialogue box and it appears as a link first then converts to the image almost instantly but how do I check the image is the right size for this forum to check I am doing it right.

Also, for my sanity, why does the usual method of using the' insert other media' button not work :angry:

Cheers

Gary

Hi Guys

I knew this would happen, I try what has been suggested here and all that happens is when I paste the URL into the insert URL box it spins for a second then goes red and nothing happens.

This just sums up me and electronic devices, any suggestions please.

Thanks

Gary.

@Head in the clouds. Correct, you just use the dialog box to enter your image hyperlink. 

 

For image size I usually use the smallest of the three 'large' options. If you have a computer screen of very high resolution, that size still shows decent quality whereas it will always be displayed correctly for smaller-resolution screens. If necessary, it will be automatically reduced.

I think that's due to a forum software update of some months ago. The new method may take a bit of getting used to, but is faster and user-friendlier when you've gotten the hang of it. Not only can you simply enter an image link by just copying and pasting it into the dialog box, the same applies with Youtube videos. Just copy the video link and paste it into the dialog box: the video will be displayed within the new post.

Hello and many thanks,Roy. I admit to be 'seriously lacking' in computer skills and expertise.I only use an 'iPad' and hope that this will be adequate.

😉👍 All the very best,Paul.
