    Last I heard, They didn't stop hosting images, Thet started charging for hosting pictures that were being linked to from other boards...
    Pissed off a lot of folks, and shot themselves in the foot at the same time...
    I downloaded all my stuff, then deleted it from my account, then closed the account over a year ago....

    another "Free" way of doing it would be to open a junk Facebook account & use that just to host the image, Then link to it that way....

    I have a web server I use for business, I just moved them to there. Will download all from Photobucket ASAP.
    They worked perfectly yesterday and today the links are dead???
    Their site went to pot, all adds over and over and over. Never seen anything like it.
    Oh Well...
    Thanks for the tips!

    As far as I know, QRZ will host your pictures here, If the file is not to large.

    Good Luck on your sale.

    You are right. QRZ can accept files/photos up to about 920kb.

    imgur.com is my go-to for image hosting.
    free and pretty much drag and drop.

    Maybe you were seeing a cached image, PB changed that maybe a year or so ago.
