Issues with PhotoBucket

So I just received the below message from the admins at PhotoBucket and now it looks like all my photos can't be viewed through posting on sites like HuntingPA and others. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone have a better, free photo hosting site?

That's weird. I use photo bucket and haven't gotten that note and my pics are still showing. Maybe post a test pic. I hate PB though. It sucks. If there is something better I'd be all over it.

I just save the pic to be posted on desk top folder than drag and drop it where it says, " Drag files here to attach". Never liked PB.

That is true. On the new format you no longer need a photo hosting site. I forgot about that.

Photobucket is inconsistent. Sometimes it works, other times not.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

I don't know how to drag and drop photos to be strategically where I want them in a post. I think it just lumps them all together. As far as I know, you can't insert pictures into text where you want them.

The one thing that has helped me a lot with Photobucket was downloading the App. The App is waaaaay more reliable than the website. I upload my pics from my phone to the app and then don't mess with the crap website until it's time to post something on here. That's when I open the website and go through that hassle. The Cannon D80 has WiFi which is awesome so I can update the pic on the good camera right to my phone and then to the PB app. It's been working ok but the website is dreadfully slow and stops responding at times which is why I now write up everything on a WORD.DOC and then copy and paste the Image File to the word Doc and then finally to HPA. Just have to make sure your word doc doesn't have partial hyperlinks in the pics which is easy as pie. Still, a solid write up with pics is a 40 -50 minute venture, which is probably why so few people post anything. It's work to get something up. I enjoy it though so 'whateves' as my punk kids would say. (when I ask them to do something haha)
