Lightbulb Aditional info about Picture Hosting:

Meanwhile I dealt with the Photobucket people to get a way to obtain more bandwidth only, not more storage that I don't need, because all my photos are edited and resized to ~ 800 X 600 so they're small but sharp; I linked certain photos from my Facebook albums, and it works good; using the photo's URL here.

Kind Regards.

Loyale I would have recommended one of our domestic cloud services which offers free 8GB storage with no limit for size but I think it would be inconvenient for you because it's in Persian. If you think it could be useful I can help you with the translation.

Thank you so much for your kind offer, however, as I have explained, I can not move all my thousands of photographs and rearrange the thousands of links on each post on the many automotive forums...

Kind regards.

Google "Drive" has 10GB available for free also. I save any files for this forum I link to there.. Also Google doesn't have the bad habit of shutting down or changing rules mid stream. I know Jes that it would be a "pain" to change all the links... I offer this as an alternative to a server in Persia...I'm glad it works for you Netkoup there..

So, I ended paying for more Bandwidth to Photobucket, on 2014, 2015 and now, on 2016... I don't know if I will continue paying to let my shared Photos on my threads to continue being viewable, as it seems like no one cares of my threads anymore.

Kind Regards.

Angry A w f u l !!!

Seems like Photobucket is becoming *even Worse* each day.
I wrote this eMail to them:


Quote:
Dear PhotoBucket Team,

I am one of the very Old users, I've been registered @ Photobucket since the Beginning, my Account user is: "JesZeK" and I have
-literally- Thousands of Photos, arranged in Albums and shared in automotive forums, Worldwide; also I pay your annual fee for extra bandwidth.

However, I can not view any of my Photos in any of my threads at different Automotive forums; nor can I upload more, nor access to my account.

What's Happening?

Please, restore my account as soon as possible, as there is useful information that is needed worldwide, and I keep receiving complain eMails due to my thousands of photos, not being displayed by Photobucket, even if I am paying to Photobucket; and the anual payment were done a couple of months ago.

Kind Regards.

So how about simply attaching them into the forum storage?
They will stay for years in here... regardless of what happens to you or Photobucket, or whatever service you use.
