What is Everybody using for Picture Hosting

Post by canorisa » Mon Jul 17, 2017 7:25 am

I just found out the hard way that Photobucket is no longer letting you use their 3rd party picture hosting for free. They are now charging for a membership. What is everybody using to host their pictures? I need recommendations, please.

Thanks,

go to www.surfacezero.com/g503

there you can login under the same name and password as in g503.com and you can upload your photo's and link them to here.

such as this image

you have to put each image between "Image" tags. The slash / marks the end of the image tag.

Are we sure of this or do we need to re-register?
My normal login name & password doesn't seem to work on surfacezero.
I successfully downloaded all my pics from photobucket back to my computer yesterday.
Put all in one folder, downloaded that folder, then cancelled the account

Oh, you might be right, maybe I was so bright :? to use the same login credentials as on g503.com so that I don't have to remember yet another login name and password :D

I believe one can just use the same name and password they use on the G503 on the surfacezero site, but I believe they are separate websites so one has to register twice to set up a user name and password. I did exactly that and set both sites up with the same user name and password for myself. That way I only need to remember one user name and password.

I have been on surfacezero since August 2005, imagine that!

There are some guys that have posted a lot more photos than I have but mine are looked at more than I thought. (#27 I think).

I am grateful for their service!

My latest, #1321 that a club member took of us during the 4th of July parade we were all in!

Well, thank you for the heads up and for the lead. It works for me now. So I guess is goodbye to photo bucket and hello G503 Album. Thanks!!! BTW, here is my B1 that looks more like a M765. It's up for sale now.
