Once again Photobucket's corporate greed has ruined numerous threads on forums where external hosting is required (ie most of them). They've blocked all third party sharing for free accounts. These accounts are not free though, they're paid for by the extremely intrusive advertising on Photobucket's site.

I've deleted my account with Photobucket, having first downloaded a couple of rare photos. I would imagine that a lot of their other users are doing the same and switching to other hosts, thus reducing Photobucket's potential for income from the on-site advertising. Most of my recently posted images are hosted by Wordpress and there are a few pictures of past layouts on the archive page of my website (http://playingtrains.wordpress.com/archive/).

no such thing as a free lunch(assuming we want to live in a capitalist society), that is the problem. The warnings have been there for a while, certainly since that other photo sharing site collapsed.
It does not cost that much to set up a website. Probably less than the cost of a pint a beer a week, and then you can post pictures to your own webspace.
