    I'm done with photobucket

    Too many glitches. I need a new photo hosting site. What do you recommend?

    I admit, I don't care for the new PB interface. Will be interested to see what others suggest.

    shawn, try imageshack. the interfaces are pretty simple and hassle-free. you don't even need to create an account to host images

    never had a problem with Flickr in all the years I've been on it. However, it does have a monthly limit on uploads unless you pay for a premium account. I can't remember what the upload limit is.. I think it may be 200mb. I'll check on that...

    300Mb upload limit per month and only the first 200 photos (most recent photos) are visible on the photostream if people want to view all the photos.

    I'm going to abandon photobucket soon in favor of my own website. I have one just sitting there and it's time I do the work to populate it and make it useful.

    I'd grab a Google Mail account and use their photo hosting, Picasa. That's what I use.

    I have several friends who have been very happy with that.

    I keep mine on my own site only because I trust myself more than any random cloud.

    I wouldn't recommend imageshack or tinypic because they are temporary - they'll be deleted after a certain point. I would use Picasa or Flickr. The nice thing is you can use the mobile apps and instantly upload them to your accounts (not sure if you were doing this with photobucket)

    2nd photo isn't showing for me Shawn... Looking at the address I think it's because it's the secure 'https' and / or doesn't end in .jpg

    Ahhh.. Shawn if you click on the photo and then right click and choose 'properties' and then highlight - copy and paste the address ending in .jpg it will show. Doesn't seem to matter if it's http or https.

    Dropbox has always been best for me. Permanent, under my control, (so far) 100% up time.
