Photobucket has either introduced new terms and conditions or are cracking down on previously existing TOS. They are no longer allowing 3rd party hosting on free subscriptions - admittedly there is little or nothing in it for them to do so, so one can understand their position.

Photobucket will however do this for anyone that has a paying account with them, so you could upgrade your account or one can of course move one's pics to another host, but I have to wonder how long it will be before they bring the same ruling to bear.

The best alternative is to host the pics on this domain, but that would have to be done through Pieter, the domain owner, if he is agreeable. ( I will check with him in the interim as to his position and post here if he doesn't do so himself.) :winkx:

Photobucket hasn't been lekker for me in recent times anyways.
Very slow and crappy.
There are many other free image hosting sites that we can have a look at.
Ex..Imgur, imgbox, ImageTitan, ImageBam, Postimage, TinyPic, Imghst, ImageBine, etc, etc.
Maybe we can play around with any of those and then recommend the best one of the lot?

Thanks Pieter. If you guys do send a signature pic through to Pieter for upload, take note that you will not be able to display it if it is larger than 120 x 600 pixels.
