Thanks Okie44 ... Jim

Only been using it for a couple of days but Imgbb has been much better than PB.

I'm in the process of downloading my albums and will be deleting mine asap. I was hating them already for how many adds they use on their site it was taking forever to upload a photo or to link them.

They finally got me. I've been deleting avatars. Gotta start working on my migration. I've only got about 600 stored on PB.

Testing imgbb....

Luna Moth grub I found today.

Seems a little clunky to use and there is no phone app I could find. I like that it's simple and their web page isn't chock full of bandwidth killing programs in the background.

imgbb users should be "kind" and resize your pictures before uploading. Smartphone HD cameras take huge pictures and require more and more storage space. With the melt down of PB and the migration of users to imgbb, the same issues will happen there. Storage space is expensive and nothing is free.

First try but you are correct .

I deleted about 320 pics from PB today so they should be happy too.

I can delete the pic from imgbb entirely then open an edit program, resize to 1200, save, upload new image, and link it again and it's always 2400 pixels. Has to be on the imgbb side, right?

Hello together,
wether or not Photo Bucket is changing his business rules, what is the possibility for us.
To handle with the size of fotos you can use irfan view for resize or size fotos correct for the forum.
dont forget to load the plugins too. the program is since several years i have been using it, free of charge.
i changend my uploading and linking yesterday to imbgg. The program is offered in germany as well.
For the beginning it works fine.

Lets see whats going on later.
