Picture hosting

Now that Photobucket is demanding $400 ransom to post pics to other websites, what are other posters using to post pics on here?

Flickr. It's free, gives you a huge amount of storage, and has a very large and active Railfan community.

You can also post images as attachments. No need for another photo hosting site.

Flickr is free as Photobucket once was. Don't be surprised when free becomes pay. I use smugmug, it's not free, but it's cheap & does a good job for me.

On this site? When did that start? I'll look into it. Thanks.
Ok. How do I post pics on this site as attachments? I have some pics of the Waterloo Depot in my computer to post.

Technically, photobucket is still free. I haven't paid a cent and I still use it regularly. You just can't link your photos without paying. :)
