Since Photobucket is changing their policies so that we have to pay to allow 3rd party links to pictures there, what / where are you placing your pictures that can be linked to posts we make here?

 

Thanks,

Ol Blue

I started using Tapatalk on my iPhone. As far as Photobucket goes I'm ready to delete all my photos and dump the account. I think what they're doing is dirty, sadly there will be a lot of missing useful photos from lots of members on lots of forums.

I agree I am going to delete my Photobucket account. They are basically holding people hostage and I would rather not be held hostage.
Tapatalk is great for posting pictures from your mobile device!

Using Tapatalk hosts the picture in some manner to be linked here?

Rob,

 

I don't know the logistics of it all.... but I take a picture, and attach it to my post.  Magic happens and it appears here.

 

So far, knocking on wood, nobody has had a broken link that I know of.

Sure enough.  The picture URL from one of Ben's Rat Rod pics is: 

https://uploads.tapa...4ce096e614d.jpg

 

So tapatalk is hosting the picture for the link.  

 

GREAT!  Now I HAVE to get a new cell phone that will actually run Tapatalk.     :help:

 

It's all Ben's fault....somehow!  :devil:

I believe that at least half the things we do are Ben's fault in some way.   :bunker:
