Years ago I used photobucket, which wasn’t very user friendly to me, but I figured it out somewhat, then they started charging a lot for the service. I understand, but it was too much for me, so I quit. In the meantime Facebook and iPhones came along, making it stupid simple to post photos. Now I’m spoiled, unfortunately it’s not that easy to post on forums such as this one, so I’m wondering what most of you use?

Plus one on Imgur. Just mark your photos private (or hidden, I believe) unless you want people commenting on them. They will still be able to be seen here even if marked private.

I also lost all my photobucket pics. I haven't figured imgur out but I keep trying.

I don't store my photos on any image hosting site, and here's why...

The Preacher recently complained that Picture Trail was ceasing operations, causing a possible loss of stored images, and past posted images disappearing.

Then there were all of the folks who got held hostage by PhotoBucket, as you well know. Some thought that the ransom demands would not get them, but they were wrong.

In the past several years, Imgfave.com, Use.com, Panaramio.com, Dropshots.com, and others have also failed. Here's what can happen to you:

So I store my pics on my PC, and back up those files on an external hard drive, and several USB drives. My external hard drive storage is not kept in my house, in case of fire, tornado, etc. And I can easily post an image here in 15-20 seconds, as I just did above. It does take a bit longer to post an image directly from my cell phone.

I fail to understand why this site requires posted photos to come from a remote hosting site. They are cumbersome, confusing, and sometimes expensive. Other sites allow me to attach/embed a photo directly from my computer, easy and simple. Why the need for hosting sites?

IMGBB is easy and free if you have pics stored on PC or Apple products. I’ve done a tutorial on ‘how to’ in the past.

jpgbox is so simple even a caveman can do it. I'm not kidding. I'm very slow to learn how to do computer stuff, and can never figure out something about them on my own. But, once I learned to use the above I cannot imagine doing it any other way. It's free, too. I do not store my pictures there. They're stored on my Mac. I just use jpgbox to post pics.

I don’t own a computer anymore, just my phone. I have several thousand photos on my phone going back to 2015.
