Well, since PhotoBucket had their meltdown, we have been left out in the cold as far as ways to post photos. I am starting this thread so that we can list and discuss possible alternatives or solutions.
 
https://postimages.org/ - I have not yet used this site, but have heard good things about it.
 
 
If there are more, please feel free to add them.

I have postimages quite a bit and you don't have to signup or download anything, (at present) unless you choose too. I also have amazon prime and could store on cloud, but I prefer not to open access, by linking or downloading from there.

I have used postimages . org. 

It seems easy to use and works good.

I am thinking that there MIGHT be a solution for the members who use Google Drive/Google Photos, but I am not quite sure, yet. When I know more, I'll post about that.

Mike (PitRow) on another forum also found a possible solution:

To be honest, we're just not 100% sure (yet) what the best solution is, yet. I've tried both Imagur and PostImages, and they do work, so that is good. I just worry about whether they will be around in a year, two years...five years.... ImageShack costs a little (18$/year, if I remember correctly, and it is probably the most "solid" solution that I can see at this point, but if my Google idea ends up working correctly, it might be good, too.

I wish I had more news....

I got this from a friend - worth a try:

Quote All of my pics have now been restored, and it only took a minute.

There is an add-on for Google Chrome or FireFox entitled "photobucketfix"

Add it to your browser, and presto! All pics come back.
