    here you go -




    this one is sized at 640 x 480

    I sometimes use flickr; it is really good.

    the only drawback for some is that you need to have a yahoo account to sign in to.

    I find the image quality is far superior to photobucket as there isn't that awful compression.

    Imgur more easy the photo would of showed up not the link. On Imgur the links tell you what one for forum use a no brainer. Get shared link and four will pop up BCCcode for forums you can't mess up. Just have the album hidden so it's secure.

    view all sizes.

    select the image size you want.

    copy and paste directly off that size image.

    now insert the link into the post using the insert image icon.

    My HTC phone has an automatic 150 gb Google Drive account. So when I logged onto drive which I've never done, it had all my last two years worth of camera photos stored. Copying the share link, then pasting it into ctrlq.org converts the Google Drive link to a useable image file.

    So actually is going to be easier for me. Sometimes you need a push eh!

    agree, Imgur very easy to set up with none of the PB bullshit and pop-ups... glad I finally switched after enduring PB's crap the last few years

    please be aware that TinyPic is owned and operated by Photobucket.

    when there are issues it usually occurs on both sites.

    personally I wouldn't entertain them anymore..

    imgur seems the best for forums, though it's no good on Ebay.
