I know imgur is tried and true reliable, but don't see it used often on this forums. Photobucket is odd, because half the time your photo will be put behind a paywall you can't get around, and then Flickr I've never seen used on here. Which platform would be preferred?

I've been using imgur since the photobucket paywall went up and have had no complaints.

I upload direct through Tapatalk mostly where forums are compatible (this one isnt).

I believe that Tapatalk work with Postimage however, and so have a free Postimage account too which is pretty much like the old Photobucket.

I was using Photobucket before the paywall went up, and am using a browser addon to view those photos. The dream is to go through all my posts and transition the photos to a new host and update the links.

Now I'm using Flickr, and it's as good as photobucket but without the ads or paywall. I can create albums and collections really easily. They have a bbcode generator too for easy copy/paste embedding.

Since I have a Google email and use their Google Photos app, I have been able to get a sharing URL and have posted that. It seems to work well. I can't figure out how people actually put photos into their posts though.
