One should always be a little improbable.

What sort of problem have you had with Photobucket?

I've been using that for a while and I've had no trouble at all.

Has anyone else had problems with imageshack.us lately? I've used it for years, but the past month or so have been getting broken links.

well, i used to use my photobucket and use the link to post the picture directly into the forums, and the picture just shows up as a box that says "image not working, sorry- photobucket" or something like that.  I can never see the picture, some people can, but not everyone...

is it better just to post a link?  Although i much more enjoy having the pics right in the thread.

mine did that tonight with my photos of Brian at the burlesque show. It's not photobucket necessarily, but possibly your IE, firefox, Safari, whatever... try clearing the cache, or wiping your cookies.

Thanks, Len...I've spent the last 2.5 years wondering if there was a thread like this one.

Didn't Photobucket recently go to an all-pay setup?  or something of the sort?

SIGH.  Yes, it's all pay now:

Can you check out the other suggestions above?

Suggest some other no-pay websights?
