Any alternatives to these sites? Both sites aren't working for me.

http://postimages.org/
http://tinypic.com/

I want to upload images without logging in. I need to log in with photobucket.

Hi,
I'm not sure about having to log in to these, as I used to use photobucket,
but after they required a few or more $$$'s.... (a King's Ransom?), I said, No Thank You.

ref;
> https://imageshack.com/ (They require you to create an Account, but it's only free for 30 days, then you have to up the dosh.)
> https://imgur.com/ (They do not allow external linking, now.)
> https://imgbox.com/ (Dunno?)
These are still free with NO sign up or log in required....yet. (That I could see.)
> https://imgbb.com/
> http://www.imagebam.com/

Some of the "users" have images uploaded to a few other sites but cannot remember exactly which ones they were.
Sorry.

It's getting harder to find a free site that allows external linking.

Have you tried the Wiki?

If you don't have to log in to a photo hosting site, what's to stop other people from accessing your photos and doing whatever they like to them?

Regards,

Dave

Well, I don't mind having to register & log in to any of the sites, as long as I can still post an external link to my image/s
when I need to.
I object strongly to having to pay for it.

morat,
Maybe use Google Photos?

This works fine for me - https://postimages.org/ and I use adblocking.

@LIMPET235

Thanks. I can upload images with these sites. (without logging in)

http://imgbb.com/
http://imgbox.com/
http://www.imagebam.com/

@Frank

The tinypic site gives me a url, but the url fails to load correctly. (redirects to the base domain)

The postimages site was giving me an internal server error last night. It's working now.

This is old, but I'm adding one more for future users:

https://imgur.com DOES allow external linking

There's no login, and it's still free. For now.

They let you upload as many as 30 images at once.


I often don't know when to use HTML format and when BBCode. We use BBCode here, but some of my other forums use HTML.

Why? hardly news plus people do not read stickies
What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.
