Default Using Photobucket.

Has anyone else had problems with Photobucket? I think it has become victim of it's own success. It's now full of pop up ads (even though I have a blocker) and takes ages to work in any form do to loading.

I have started using Imgur.

I've abandoned Photobucket in favour of Flickr

Pb became so slow and loaded so much pineapple per page its unusable

Flickr much better and my phone auto uploads the camera roll when I'm on wifi, then I just choose which photos the public can see and get the links to them for forums

Been like that over 6 months but problem is that all my photos on various forums are all linked back to Photobucket if I move all my stuff they all stop working.

You won't loose any pictures stored on there. The thing is now there are so many ads that adding any to the library is painfully slow up to other web hosts. They have been great but the last few months it's gone down hill fast.

There are many web hosts. For what we do on here you may as well choose a free one. Flickr and imgur are both popular now if you fancy a change Shaun. They work just the same a bucket but just far better.

My public Flickr stream

https://www.flickr.com/photos/146262117@N08

Not that much on it since most images are not public, my old build pics are on photobucket but browsing them is impossible.

Veru handy android app to manage it

They still load ok on forums as google and the forums cache them so don't rely on Photobucket.

I use the Photobucket app with no issues, has a little advert banner at the bottom but it's hardly anything.
