Post them on the forum linked sight and keep them on my computer and upload them to cloud to share if needed

Same as Apis, on my computer and then the forums linked sight (Post Image). Just too easy to do it any other way, even photobucket, which I stopped using long ago.

i did use photobucket occasionally rober for photos or gif images post image cannot display, whether it be on the forum or the chatbox. unfortunately no more.  i will not pay the 'ransom' . i do not know of another photo hosting service that is/was probably as 'good' as photobucket; there are some out there. like perry and apis, all the photographs i do post here are uploaded through post image.  videos are uploaded through you tube.

if you are looking to post on other forums, might also ask what others on those forums are using.  i think many forum folks were using photobucket and have been scrambling for a 'replacement'.  i do follow a couple of 'collecting' forums, very sad to see all the photo's unavailable and folks looking for an alternative.  very sad to see all the photos blanked here as well with the photobucket 'ransom' notice. 

good luck rober, if you find an alternative, let us all know.

It makes you wonder how photobucket will survive if no one is going to be using it anymore?

from what I'm seeing the majority of people are telling them to shove it. I was trying to retrieve some photos from their site & unless you are a paying subscriber you keep getting bumped to advertiser's sites & are plagued by non stop pop up ads. i'm washing my hands of them.
