It's may not be reasonable to complain about something one has been receiving for free, but I'm going to do it anyway.

If you use Photobucket you already know the flood of pop-ups there have been getting worse and worse. Now, Photobucket has discontinued 3rd. party hosting of images stored there unless you buy their "PLUS 500" plan for $400 a year.

Otherwise, any image you try to post from your Photobucket account will show up like this:



What's worse, all of those images you've posted over the years will no longer show up unless you pay the ransom. That's going to have a real negative effect on many forums, especially those with reference and "how to" posts.

Is there any way to add a photo to a post here by loading it directly from your PC file, rather than using a hosting site?

I hadn't heard about that.

But sure just click on the 5th icon button over Upload file. Then click on the Browse button. Find the picture and click save to put in post. Then the save all files. Something like that, pretty easy. Direct from your device to the forum.

Thanks Yotehater. I was unaware of that option.

It works!

Yeah, I don't know what their process is. Perhaps it has to do with the number of photos you're posted recently.

Over the last two weeks I've seen that "3rd. party hosting suspended" banner in post by others on a few different forums, but my photos were showing up just fine. Then today, I got the hammer. They will likely get to you also.

Free to store, but no more 3rd. party hosting. So you can't post them on forums, email, facebook, etc.

Great question. I seldom use it anymore, except for my old pictures. I don't remember the last time I uploaded a picture there.

Still a mystery to me. confused2

I stopped using them a little over a year ago when all the ads slowed my uploading to a craw and made it almost impossible to load anything. BUT......then they offered a plan to bypass all the ads. roflmao Flipped them the finger and said adios!

What I don't understand about loading direct to THF is about half my pics load sideways regardless of their orientation on my computer.
