    Postimage is easy but I had to sign up (i.e. get a password). The downside to me is that they seem to come down hard if you post copyrighted pics, and how strictly do they construe that? Some copyrighted pics are so common they have become public domain more or less and could fall under "fair use." Also, gray areas like screenshots from bootleg concerts could pose problems.

    I do like it though for it's ease of use and you can re-size pics with it.

    I just use tinypic.com

    I don't know if it's the best site, but it does what I want it to do and doesn't cost me anything.

    Let's see if it still works.



    Having spent the three months after the last tour practicing, Glenn was sure he'd win all those staring contests with Don. However, what he didn't realise was that Don had been putting in some serious practice as well.

    I'm glad it still works now, but tinypic is owned by photobucket. I'll never trust those guys again!

    One suggestion is to use Jing with screencast.com. Both free, although you do need to sign in to Screencast. I use this EVERY DAY at work. (I do internet content writing.). It's a screen capture program, but it's very intuitive and works extremely well. It's not photobucket, but it's a good FREE alternative that definitely does the job.
    Here's a cut and paste from screencast.com (Gee, wonder why I picked this one....?)

    I had hoped that as a long term PB user I would not be charged $300 when I resubscribed. Sadly I got an email yesterday advising me that I had to renew & that was the most expensive option for what I used the site for. I thought perhaps I should renew, although I wasn't happy about it. But when I tried to renew using PayPal all I got was a 'we are processing your payment' loop. That was yesterday. So they obviously don't want my business. I'm done with it. I was deleting photos anyway because I sadly didn't see the point of keeping most of them any more & now my hand has been forced. I will try the site Soda mentioned.

    OK, that is really obscene. When I right click on the photobucket icon I get assaulted with ads and popups before I can even view the image.

    Since those pics aren't actually hosted on your site they are basically gone, right? At least until someone reposts with the new service?

    What a pain.

    I double-checked to see if the old Photobucket pics were back up and sure enough they are! At least the ones I checked on Randyís picture thread. Itís nice to see them back if only for a short while.
