    Free image hosting - which one?

    I've been using Photobucket for a gazillion years now and mainly use it to link to my images stored there from various forums. However, Photobucket has just updated its T&Cs to stop the free account users from '3rd party hosting' so I can't do that any more.

    Short of paying up quite a lot of money, 400USD per year, for hardly any use (perhaps 20-30 photos per year uploaded and '3rd party hosted' in forums), are there any other free image hosting services that will allow me to use IMG tags in forum posts?

    I used Flickr several years ago a for a while. It worked okay until the Yahoo side of things became more and more intrusive after Yahoo took over Flickr.

    I just drop any photos into an S3 bucket these days. You get 5gb of storage on the free tier, which sounds like it'll be more than enough for your needs.

    Imgur and Pixaby would be the best choice for hosting your images for free.

    Flickr seems to have quietly changed its policy on uploads,I can now upload as many as I like without paying for an account.They must have lost lots of users.Also Google is unlimited if you dont mind lower resolution images,which is ok for holiday snaps etc.
