Please note that "Photobucket" (using a non-offensive consonant in the middle there....) is NOT an option as I tried them for another site and it was more painful than root canal. Their software was even invasive by searching my PC for data to create endless advert pop-ups that covered the screen, preventing any sort of real use.
And as many can see now, the E-C has become a mess of extortion threats from Photobucket. Yes, I did check the URL shown and unless you pay them, they will never again allow your pix to seen anywhere. Obviously desperate for bucks as their business model seems to be failing.
Good point about the secure issue, need to find that magical http:// site that allows this site access to obtain the pix.
However, going forwards, any chance that uploading right into the site may ever be an option?
Thx Mods for your assistance and insight.

End of day update
Stumbled upon the topic regarding Photobucket, did not know the problem went back that far. Last time I used it was probably April. Still feeling the pain..... :wall:


For the few pics I have uploaded here since the extortion started, I am using Flikr.

Thanks for that, I sussed it out, looks pretty "friendly". Do you use the basic service or the Pro? I don't need the ad-free version (need to save the $, being retired and all...) but not if they are like PB and just inundate you with them.

I am too cheap to pay for the Pro version. I can Beta test it for free though.
