Flickr. Already has a premium level so they shouldn't do a photobucket on you.

Cheers,

Tony.

There's only two questions:

1. What direction do you go
2. What's the Lap Record?

Lenny - does your image location look similar to this ----https://storage04.dropshots.com/photos7000/photos/1417679/20171117/172213.jpg

Can you see any difference in the type of directory structure - and I presume you re using ordinary jpg files
That is BOV's test photo

Postimage still does it for me.
I am better organised too. I set up folders and name them before uploading to that particular one.

I just went there ie followed the link and the site co-operated...I saved the new site as my image hosting site in bookmarks and got rid of the old one.

Ok, thanks munter. It seemed dubious and I wondered if the new site was some kind of bait for something dodgy. But have just seen that it is working and my images are there.

Good, the problem seemed to be one that Postimage had no control over....ie ..it was unintentional.
