Has anyone come up with any good alternatives for image hosting that allows linking of the images?

I know about Fotki, but I`ve never used it, so I don`t know about account size or linking abilities. I`ve also heard of tinypic and imgur.

I can look into this, but I thought it might be faster and easier to ask y`all what solution you have come up with for the Photobucket "debacle".

Thanks in advance for the info!

p.s. Hey, I just noticed something convenient about the message editor when I inserted the URL for my siggy. The URL box remembers which URLs I enter, so I can type the name of the image and the URL will show up because it`s in the memory.

They changed their TOU and they say they do not allow third party hosting (direct linking) anymore. But so far I haven`t seen my images replaced with their "third party yadda yadda" image. Most of the images that I use are in private albums, and for the most part, I am the only one who direct links to the images. I suppose my bandwidth usage may be low, so I seem to be okay.

I think that the people who may be having trouble are the people who have their images stored in a public account. Or maybe their bandwidth usage is very high because they have their signatures loaded into one of those siggy rotators. You know, if you post on a message board that allows signatures, then your signature will appear in every one of your posts and everyone who reads that thread will be "hitting" that image multiple times. I never used my signature that way and I don`t use a rotator either. I insert my siggies one at a time.

You`ll have to check some of the images that you`ve posted and see if you can see them. We shall see how things develop.

Thanks for responding!
