How did such a cool site go from free to a ridiculous 400 a year? Is there any replacement? Id like to post a new git i got but cant because stupid photobucket. If you know a free alternative please let me know! Also, try not to hound on a earlier post of this same issue, i couldnt log in my account for the past two months so cut me some slack please. :)

The internet is like anything else...advertising only gets you so far and then you have to start charging. In time, Yahoo will charge for email accounts (or per email sent / received), and most websites, including this one, will probably charge an admission/use fee...

This is from Facebook. Open the photo that you want and then right click it,'copy image address'.
Post it as normal here. Don't forget to scroll back and take the s off https.

In fact it's quicker this way than Photobucket.

Ahhhhh.... I get it now. Maybe it's a Mac thing, but I can't just copy the URL from the FaceBook feed. I have to first right click and choose "View Image". THEN I can right click on the image and choose "Copy Image Location" and paste that in using the "inset image tool here. Not super easy - but easy enough.

Stole this pic from Karloff's FB since he's rockin' a festival this weekend.

Use the BB code and I personally use large thumbnail as some of the other choices are too large for forum use.

You'll see what I mean when you start to use it.
