    To save me reading the whole thread...

    Since the relative demise of Photobucket, any images I want to share are directly uploaded to the site (GC). Over time, could this practice become an issue?

      Well, Photobucket is still going, Freddy, only they were taken over a couple of years ago and the "new" people have raised the prices and done other things with the site.
      If you mean sharing/uploading from your PC there isn't, won't be, a problem.:dunno::coffee::snorky:

        I know they’re still going. They quite often message me asking if I’d like to pay £99 per year subscription (:whistle:)

          I use this free site when I need a hosting site to upload some images to a message board. Which is most of 'em!.

          Upload Image — Free Image Hosting

          I've still got photos on Photobucket, I can still access them and I think you can give someone a link to them, but you can't post the link on a message board.

            That's because it's all about the bottom line these days, and not the customer or the service they offer:dunno:.:wallbanging: They want nearly £72 for their "Premium" account for storing 300,000 images. But Photoshop led the way from selling their image processing software to renting it out for even more money:doh:

              Part of my philosophy:-

              If it cost - don't want it! :old: :snorky: I'd rather give it to charity - which I do :dbgrtmb:
