It appears Photobucket has stopped allowing linking from forums to images they host.

So what service are folks using to host pictures for this forum.

I've been using Facebook rather than learning a new service. Works good so far.

And how do you link a post here to the facebook image and have the image show here instead of just the link?

Go to your image on Facebook.

Click on the picture you want to show.

Let it open.

Right click on it and click "copy image address".

Go to your post here.

Click the img and then paste the image in between the tags.

Right click on the picture, then select COPY IMAGE ADDRESS.

Then use the img tag on the board here and past the URL in between the tags.

It'll end up looking like this:

If using an iPad, find the picture you want, then press and hold the screen until the SAVE IMAGE/COPY window pops up, then hit COPY. It'll copy the URL of the picture.

I create albums on FB like Guns, Camping, Jeeps, Metalwork, Dead Hookers, etc... and I set them visible to ONLY ME so people don't ask stuff like "What's that supposed to be?"

I just stick the image somewhere on one of my personal websites:

They don't cost much, and don't take much work.
