I mainly use Flickr, but I also pull some images over from Facebook.

The problem w/ FB is that they're regularly change/update URLs for the images, so eventually the link here will be no good.

Tiny Pic is good, too. I use it to host my AARs (when I'm writing them, lol).

Another vote for Flickr.

I still cannot believe that Photobucket got away with that. They MUST have broke some law somewhere surely?

Like I said at the time - I'm not talking about them changing the terms and conditions - but that their change effectively broke everything everyone had signed up to previously. I just do not understand a) how they got away with it and b) how they're still running as a company

If anyone is using imgur for hosting, I strongly recommend the EasyImgur app - https://github.com/bkeiren/EasyImgur/tree/master/dist/Release

I have found using the standard imgur uploader problematic. It does not handle bulk uploads well and if it fails, you have to start over from the beginning. The EI app can sync with your account and runs the upload in the background. If it fails, it resumes from the last point in the upload.
