Photobucket changes re 3rd party sites...

'Yes! All your photos are still available by logging into your Photobucket
Account. Photobucket has only restricted the ability to view your photos on
3rd party sites.'

Seems no more free links to pbucket without a paid subscription so all my photos from the NT Gulf trips won't load now.

What is the next best option for this site?

You can just load them up all directly here if you want Murd. You can do up to ten at a time (I think) per post and we handle all the resizing at the forum level to display on everything from a mobile phone through to a big fancy widescreen tv.

Shout if you want some more help on how to do it.

I advise to ditch PBucket entirely. They have just screwed the pooch in the last couple years w shoddy service and pervasive ads and clunky interface.
Personally my account is grandfathered and will be linkable until 31DEC18 then no more hotlinks for me through them. may be an alternative.
