Postimage.org—Alternative to Photobucket

Recommended Posts

Some of you will have noticed that photobucket no longer allows linking to your photos. This has resulted in lots of the broken image links you see in the forum. 

I’ve just signed up to postimage.org and will start hosting my forum photos there. Seems to be a pretty straightforward site and signing up and uploading a couple of pics has been pretty painless. After uploading, click on the share icon and grab the hotline for forums. Just paste this into your post and voila works just like photobucket used to. 

I’ll admit that I haven’t done a whole lot of research so if you have any further information about postimage I’d be interested to hear it. I’m not planning on uploading anything particularly private or personally identifiable.

It's weird - I've seen the broken links (grrr).  The photos I put up last night were uploaded to photobucket and linked fine.  Mind you, I don't like the 200 pop up ads that are on the site now.  I have been looking for an alternative so might give it a try

For anything new it might be worth using postimage though... Photobucket is malware/popup central these days
