I’m pretty sure imgur won’t go Photobucket’s route. They would make everyone at Reddit and 4Chan mad and that might as well be making the entire Internet mad.

In order for a photo hosting site to provide a usable free service, they need enough warm bodies to be paying for the higher tiers of service.

In the case of imgur, those are the Redditors who have thousands of photos that need to be up and shared simultaneously.

For Flickr those people are mainly photo professionals, journalists, and bloggers.

Photobucket relied on the Flickr model. The obvious problem there being that Photobucket has always been at least pretty buggy and less favoured by professionals because better services existed (like Flickr). They couldn’t survive on the few pros who subscribed to the higher tiers alone, so they aggressively cut into their free tier.

Deleting photos seems to be tied to the same time limit at the EDIT post function.
Question is how do I delete older non relevant photos?
You will need to let us know which photos you would want to delete.
Send us a PM and we'll help you get sorted out.

Best regards,

Yea, I didn't think it was going to be as easy as you all described in post #12 , because I had already tried it.
You could always remove the editing time limit. That would work too, with much less hassle of having to PM anyone.

Thank you for your quick reply.

JL

If you're willing to spend a few dollars annually, you can secure your digital media for sharing for the foreseeable future independent of the whims of free hosting 'services'. But if it's just gotta be free ... back to the thread.

Hey guys,

As JB mentioned above, you're more than welcome to use other hosting sites for your images but just be cautious that they very well may change their policies one day just like Photobucket did. We can't say for sure what could happen in the future.

That said, we do highly recommend you use the attachment feature on the site to ensure your images will not be affected. If you need any assistance or have further questions, please let us know - we're here to help.


Cheers,
Nate

There may well be less expensive options if you check around. But, here's one exampe for $47.40 per year: Lonex
It's a web hosting service. So, if you wanted, you could use it for that too.

Note: I have no financial interest in this company. Just a satisfied customer.
