Have you noticed that as of June 1st, 2017, Photobucket now wants $39.99 a month for 3rd party hosting? For many years I have had a Photobucket FREE account that I used with the img tag to post photos on various forums. While this forum allows you to upload photos, most do not. You may have recently seen Photobucket images in place of photos you linked that state upgrade your account to allow 3rd party hosting. Another great free service has ended.
