    Preferred picture hosting sites/apps?

    What is the consensus what to use for posting pics on the forum(s)? I used to use PhotoBucket, but it looks like they got a little weird? What’s out there??

    Are you guys using Imgur with your smartphone? I can`t get it to post a pic. It`s just leaving a link to the pic? On my desktop it shows all the posting options, but not on the mobil app?

    If your sending from your phone download tapatalk. It’s a forum hosting site. You can download pics directly from your phone to the app. Alot easier. Their is a pic limit though.

    You can get a lifetime subscription with unlimited full size photos for $30. Finally Broke down and got it myself.

    Alot of the posters use the Tapatalk app.

    Ugh - the whole thing with photobucket left a bad taste. I took a break from making threads because of that.

    Then, i tried hosting the photos on the sister site, AG. But some IT stuff happened over there and my threads are hit or miss with the pics that were hosted there.

    I do have an account with imgbb but....don`t really post threads anymore.

    I do use Tapatalk for posting an occasional pic

    So far, I’m really liking Tapatalk! Posting pics is too easy.

    I do Tapatalk. The free version stopped allowing me to upload photos a few years ago but the VIP version is a dollar a month or so and I switched to it.

    QUESTION:

    What happens if I post a picture with Tapatalk and I decide later if I want to delete it? With PhotoBucket I would simply just go in and delete the picture from being hosted. What do you do with Tapatalk?

    512detail - not sure if I follow? Can it be deleted?

    Also, what the deal with the editing option on Utopia? Seems like the option to edit your post goes away after a certain amount of time? And once the edit feature option is gone how would you edit/delete the pic you posted??

    The picture seems to no longer show up both in the thread and attached to the thread on the subscribed tab.

    There is definitely a time limit on the ability to edit your post.

    My Redeye post from yesterday morning is still editable for me but a post from over two days ago isnt. I`d guess its ~48 hours or less to edit so that obviously doesn`t solve a need to delete a Tapatalk uploaded pic after that time frame.

    I was using Imgur but now it isn`t finishing uploading from Android so until that is fixed I`m back with photobucket
