That's what I was thinking.

And for the last two weeks, I haven't been able to copy/paste the link from my Flickr pics to this forum. No luck posting any photos that way; the little right-curve arrow just doesn't show up any more when I select one of my photos in Flickr. I have a 'free' account with well under 1000 pics.

Anyone else having this problem?

If using a mobile device, switch your browser window to use the desktop site, and you should see the arrow icon where you can copy the bbcode.

What was the change on Flickr in which you disagreed?
I lost pictures through Drop Box, when they started asking for money. Had I been asked, up front, no problem - I simply would not have joined. However, when Drop Box started charging and interfering with me accessing MY stuff, I dropped Drop Box, feeling cheated, and went on to Flicker. And, of course, Flicker did the same thing to me. I lost stuff, in spite of all their warnings, and feel cheated over both incidents, with Drop Box and Flicker. To that, add this....

Why are any of us stupid enough to trust strangers with our stuff? Seriously! No more picture hosting sites for me!

The limit on the number of pictures you could upload to bikeforums used to be smaller, so that's why I wasn't doing it for a long time. They increased it, right?

So I just tried it again. OK it works, but the site reduces the size of my picture.

That's hard to believe you lost pics on flickr. Back in the the old days, they told us we could have 200 free pics hosted, and they always lived by that. Always. Now, they allow a bunch more for free.

I've posted 800x1200s with no problem. I don't see the point in posting anything larger than that to a forum.

Frequently most of the photos on those old threads are lost.

I upload direct to BF or use links to Flickr albums

The OP did not mention BF specifically. Some forums other than this do not let you upload directly from your computer. Hence the problem.

That's because nobody wants to pay to store 20MP photos that were blurry when they were taken, and don't get better when you zoom in. Resizing everything to 1200x1200 and at 60% quality would be more than adequate for posting on any forum.

Storage is cheap enough today that you don't need a hosting site. I keep all photos on a backed-up hard drive. No worries about "pay us for eternity or all the links you've posted will die."
It helps if you can face the fact that 90% of them aren't really worth keeping.

it's not about storing them, it's about getting them hosted so you can share them.
