    Need suggestions for a new image hosting website

    I've been using Photobucket for years and I've liked it plenty. Their interface and the fact that moving folders to another folder breaks links has been annoying, but the storage has been nice and it's easy to get a forum img link. But now they've decided to flood it with ads (they even move the screen so you'll accidentally click on them), AND make you pay $400 a year if you want to share a link! It's insane.

    I want somewhere that I can manage all my images, and not worry about storage space so much. I don't need much, probably 100mb at most. I don't mind light ads. I disable my adblocker unless the ads are crazy because it helps keep the site up.

    What about having your own server where you can host everything? It's a bigger upfront cost but if you still have your computer business it's a tax write off.

    Might be be a little extreme for just needing 100mb of pictures though...

    I won't use Mediafire again. All my pictures got corrupted on there a few years ago.

    I think I had lost some stuff on mediafire and it wasn't images, but I didn't pay for storage, so go figure. Maybe just the links changed, I really can't remember now.

    I also have stuff on mediafire that is still there from 7 years ago. I wonder if you are a paying customer they might treat your uploads better?

    If I remember correctly, they got hacked when it happened. All my pics looked scrambled after that. I doubt it will happen again, and I won't discourage people from using them, but it was bad enough that I won't use them for images again.

    Awesome. I have so many files and I prefer to keep them organized. Unless anyone has some other suggestions, that's what I'll be using.
