    Photo Hosting options

    I've used Photobucket for a good few years now, but it has progressively become less and less useful. It's now a slow, unwieldy website and even the login is unreliable (I changed my password yesterday and it's already refusing to accept it yet again).

    So given that it's pretty much a waste of space, what other options are floating about out there that aren't so utterly failtastic?

    I figure here is almost guaranteed to have ideas and suggestions

    I still use photobucket and dont have any problems with it now I don't try and upload directly - logging in once then clicking into the Library then uploading directly to albums works for me, but I know a lot of people hate the amount of advertising that they have going on (a subscription helps in removing most of them so I don't get them).

    If you're just uploading to Wamp you can put up a lot as attachments directly into posts but other than those two a facebook page (rather than a profile) set with photos to being visible to everyone could be an option. I know a few people who have tried out Flickr and gotten irritated with that as well so a good, reliable alternative seems a little difficult to come across these days.

    Might have to check instagram (and possibly Flickr). For the moment dropbox is working ok, but I can't imagine my dropbox account will appreciate hosting all my photos for multiple forums!

    Im too lazy to upload to each forum individually

    I've used Flickr as a pro member since around 2008. I do like it a lot. In public I have some photos, behind the scenes I have thousands of private ones. It's handy. 1 TB free - 2 TB with pro i think. Unresized images. Full size.
    My fear? Who knows what the future holds for it. Will it be here in 2 years?

    Instagram doesn't seem that friendly for mass photo. But ideal for showing off a few now and then.

    Amazon is pushing me on their "unlimited" storage (but is it reduced file size? I'm not sure).

    Google photo I did not like.

    As it is - I still have photos in multiple places... apple, google, flickr...
