I tried the google search approach, it only turned up 7 of my posts.

Then I tried installing and using google drive. I loaded all my Norton pics into it, but I don't know where they are or how to find them. I don't have a teenager to call on for help.

But none of that matters.

As I look at the screen now, there is a white-on-blue "p" symbol and text that says "add image to post". Clicking on that takes me to "postimage" which apparently is a photo hosting site. I don't know where that came from. As Steve Urkel would say: "did I do that?" I dunno. Has it always been there? I dunno.
Anyway, one more click gives access to my computer's photo files. Just select the one you want and away you go. Too easy. For now anyway, until they do a photobucket.

I sort of suspected that. He did it quietly. It's easy to use. I've been going through my posts and replacing my photobucket links with it.

I have no idea how long they will allow free image hosting.

Go VIP. Else it's a real bummer. Half the posts in my bookmarks have broken image links. Useless.

as a dinosaur of technology I cant follow all of this, I recently failed to bring a photo over from PB so realise why now. does this all mean that any photos that we have posted from PB at any time will disappear at some point.
Are there any other sites or what do we do now to get pics onto the forum. Thanks.

Yes any pictures that you linked from PB will become that silly advert instead. probably already have done.

There are alternatives but who knows how long they will remain free?

I'm using Post Image https://postimages.org
You can use it without an account but if you create an account you'll be able to keep track of what pictures you've put on there.

I am a huge fan of this site and have relied on it heavily for assistance in the restoration of my bike.

The photos within the site are integral to its overall content and information and the PB ambush really screwed up a huge portion of very valuable information.

This is just my two cents worth but if posting or re-posting photos do not trust any outside service to handle your visual offerings or content....they will, sooner or later, screw it up again....

Yes, if you see something you like or may want to keep, you better do it immediately, or it may disappear. I've learned that much. Most of ludwig's stuff is long gone, unfortunately. But that doesn't help those that look through old posts.

Hi all,

Not happy with all this photo sharing nonsense. I joined photo bucket to share some images and that's gone kaput and I ponied up for VIP and still can't seem to upload images from my computer. What am I missing?

C-ya,

PS I stand corrected it looks as though I can upload from my computer. Is there a size limit?

Hi all,

Great, I'm happy now. Uploading from my computer as a VIP member is much easier than crappy photo bucket anyway.

C-ya, Jer

You haven't actually used the VIP upload to do that. That's the 'Postimage' option.
