I just signed up for Amazon Web Services which took about five minutes. It's massive overkill for hosting a few dozen build thread images but I can be 99% certain that Amazon will still be around in a few years and that it won't suddenly start charging for a previously free services. Just need to go edit my thread now. edit: I don't expect to ever exceed the free allowance.

Lucky for me I only had 32 images in my build thread which took about 30 mins to edit. Just deleted my Photobucket account. Which is probably what they wanted.

I've been trying to update the pics in my project thread but can't seem to get anything to work. I've uploaded my pics onto Flickr and imgur but I can't find a way to copy a link to post onto the forum. The only one I can find won't work. Also tried to sign up to postimage but they're not sending me a password to sign up.

How do you do this? I just need a url image code but can't find any anywhere.

I'm not using any of those services (I'm using Amazon S3) but have you tried right clicking on the full size images and picking "copy image URL" or similar from the pop up menu?

For Flickr you need to use their website to generate the IMG codes, not the app.

I've been looking for something like that but apart from all the sharing you fb and the likes the closest thing is copy to clipboard but when I put the image codes next to it the picture doesn't work. Driving me insane lol. Luckily I only spent the time uploading my new project to Flickr so haven't wasted too much time

The website looks the same as the app. Maybe there's an option to change it to a desktop version and works that way.
