And people seem to think things are going to remain free. I don't trust that anything will remain free. I don't provide free services or products.

If you're not paying, then *you* are the product.

Photobucket now demands credit-card data to access one's account as well as a $300 annual fee to share one's photos. But then, TF won't allow posting photos coming from photobucket. WHY IS THAT? So even if I pay the ransom, I can't post here. Definitely appears that any photos posted on photobucket and other similar sites claim ownership of the photographs.

Never been successful posting photos from my hard drive onto TF.

Anyone note the significant drop in photos posted on TF?

They provided photographic services for a fee such as providing prints. Don't recall they said access to one's own photos would be subject to a fee sometime in the future.

It's very easy to post photos from your hard drive to TF. You choose the files and upload them. Then you click on them to add them to the post.

How to recover your lost Photobucket images attn Birdman666 - Parrot Forum - Parrot Owner's Community

I don't know if you've tried either of these methods or not, but both were posted as means to recover your photos.

Why? Probably because Photobucket not only F'd all their customers but they literally broke the internet when the dropped 3rd party hot linking. I think it is a good thing that sites no longer allow any hot linking from P-Bucket as they are about as dishonest a company as exists. They lured all the mice into the trap and when it was chock full, slammed the door on them.

Nearly every web forum on the net, blog, eBay etc. etc.. all suffered horrible disrepair when P-Bucket F'd their customers. Just two days ago I was looking for info on a Honda snowblower and found what was once an excellent post with all the info I needed. Unfortunately all the important stuff, the photos, were gone and replaced with the Photobucket ransom logo.. Photobuckets' ransom & heist of your personal photos, with zero advanced warning, will haunt the internet for years to come.

This is the best way to ensure the images will be available as other sites change things around and make the links that work today, not work tomorrow.

Not sure if there's an easier way, but one way is to click on your ID in the upper right (open in a new tab if you don't want to lose your place.) This opens your profile page. Click "Show All Albums" on the right. From here it's easy to upload and manage your images. Click on one and you get the "BB Code" below it, which you can copy-and-paste right into any post.

We export the photo to desktop, give it a name, adjust size to 1200 pixel width, click manage attachments (below post on TF), click choose file, click choose, click upload, then click submit reply to post. Afterwards, drag photo from desktop to trash if you don't think you'll be using it again for a while. We have a mac.

Maybe that's too many steps for you? Seems a small price to pay considering what's happened...

I use Tumblr to share my boating photos and YouTube for videos. They don't cost anything and are pretty simple to use. I store all my photos permanently on local hard drives with automatic daily backups. I would not trust any web-based service with anything I didn't mind losing.

Exactly.

Reality of data management security is, don't trust any one device, synchronize and/or backup to multiple places.

Remote backup or media rotation is great in the event complete disaster strikes you primary facility.

Thanks. I'll try that when my mental energy is high.
