Flicker is owned by Yahoo, you just need a (free) Yahoo email account. I already had one so it was an easy setup. Linking (so far) is allowed, but it's a little tricky to find actual image link you need to paste into the AS forum.
  1. Upload to flickr
  2. Click on the picture
  3. Select the arrow icon at the bottom (share photo)
  4. Select the 'embed' option
  5. In the text displayed, look for the 'staticflickr.com' link (looks like this)
  6. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1596/...23321713_b.jpg" width="186" height="240" (width and height are optional, use for other than original picture size)
  7. Copy and paste into the AS forum add image window

https://www.flickr.com/

I switched to a free IMGUR account.
Photobucket is still running, but it's torture unless you pay them.

Easiest is to use the "attachments" option on forums instead of the "Images" option.

Youre not the only one. Everytime I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong. I gave up. Its an antique format, they refuse to join the 21st century, and as far as photos go, fairly useless. Every time I think Id like to put a photo in, I leave. Before I get so angry I want to throw my phone.

Yep.. Photobucket still works fine for some of us. All other forums (that I visit) still accept their images. Just not here. I pay $2/mo, but only because PB has somehow missed me in their new pricing scheme. I would suspect PB will be out of business soon with their new pricing model.

I hope this photo site blocking will not extend to private websites.
I have my own web server and I have my various Airstream project pages with many "how to" photos there.
When I post to a topic here on Airstream Forums, I usually use a photo link and sometimes a link to my web page to show details of what I am working on.

Rest easy... you've now been reported to them ... and you owe back-fees.

😡

Another attempt...this time I went to "Go Advanced" then I went to "Manage Attachments" than I went to the photo area and chose a picture from my camera roll. It seemed to be going well. I uploaded the image, but then I got stuck there, no "Submit Post" option to be seen. No "Go Back" option. Unable to scroll up or down, just stuck in an area showing that my selected upload had consumed about 10% of my attachment allotment (green/red indicator bar).

I thought maybe I had posted it without realizing it (after all, I'm clearly not a tech wiz) so I closed the window (at least that option was available) then returned to this thread...nope. It didn't post, but the 10% reduction in availability remained, and I haven't been able to locate the uploaded file for another attempt...I'm trying to stay positive, but I sense the approach of "GRRRRR"

I'm beginning to see where PammieSue is coming from.

Ok, trying again... there are "Close Window" buttons at the top and bottom of the "Manage Attachments" window, when selected they appear to "click" but the window doesn't actually close...maybe that's part of the problem. Also, I'm still unable to figure out how to retrieve the photo that I uploaded from my camera roll. My available space is still reduced, but I haven't figured out how to find the file, I could download it again, but I'm pretty sure that would reduce the available space even more.

Hmmmmmm....

...maybe a paid subscription here increases functionality???

I'm not opposed to funding the forum, but I'm reluctant to do so until I'm sure I can contribute more than just text.

I'm eager to share some small upgrades that I've done to our 2018 'Cloud (cedar-lined closet, simple propane tank lock...) but photo-mastery must come first.

...maybe all the icons^^^^^at the top of the text box have functions. When in the advanced mode, a couple of them seem like they'd be useful, like the paper clip icon (attachment?) or the mountain portrait (photo attachment?) but they don't seem to do anything.

Looks like you tried all that I did. I pay for really good websites, Netflix, Amazon, Audible, iCloud, etc, but I never pay ransom. There was a time I would have paid for photobucket, but then they changed their editing program and at that point only became a place to store photos for posting in places like this. Im still not paying them.
