Any suggestions for better options?
I'm not a huge photo sharer or anything... but in the ~6 months that I've had Flickr, photobucket has had major problems on several occasions, and I've never had a problem accessing mine or sharing photos from mine.
Flickr is nice
I use photobucket all the time for posting on forums. I use Flickr and 500px for other stuff, although I haven't renewed my Flickr pro account this year yet.
Likewise, I use photobucket for forum posting because the links are so simple.
What are you looking for. Something basic like those? More advanced? Our photoclub uses Zepholio which is more professional grade. Unfortunately the don't have a free, with the cheapest at $30/yr. I think we use the $50/yr package. I know several professionals who use the more expensive packages for photo delivery. Yhr 2 highest packages are great turnkey backoffice supporting multiple client delivery. I don't have quite that need and deliver files through dropbox.
I use Photobucket and my main complaint is that it often just stops working altogether when I'm in the middle of an upload. Once the photos are uploaded I actually like Photobucket well enough.
My current stable:
1989 SLX Bottecchia (Campy Athena 11s)
1999 Cannondale F400 mountain bike
2012 Bianchi Infinito (Campy Record 11s)
2012 Colnago C59 in PR99 color scheme (Campy Record 11s)
Ever since they changed the format, I have not been able to access my pictures in photobucket. I get error on page message and everything just hangs there.
I don't have big problems with photobucket but sometimes it is very slow.
