    OP stated he closed his image hosting account...so any pics from there will no longer display.
    If he still needs another hosting site, I'd suggest getting VIP membership on this site or try PBASE.COM which I've used since 2001... never had any issues with it.

    It seems i can't go back and edit the early posts to replace the missing pictures, so have settled to just show a before and after.
