Does anyone else use photobucket to embed graphics & photos on DU?

I've been using it forever, without any problems. But just recently it's become useless, as
it won't copy in the "direct" mode or any other mode.

AND/OR ...

Can anyone recommend an alternative photo sharing website to use instead of photobucket?

4. So you did this with your photobucket account?

 

thanks for doing that .. so it is "just me". LOL.

It's my own account that is fucked up, not the whole site.

I took the advice of that other guy (above) .. opened a new account there.

Too weird .. been using photobucket for like 10-12 years with NO problem
at all. Go figure.

5. It's hard to say/explain...

You know the area on photobucket image...when you go to click on the image, it gets shaded over. Well, I play around with it for a few seconds until it lets me copy the 'img'. It usually works. That's the only way I can explain it. Sound nuts, I know, but it usually works ever time.

7. Yah, I guess my account is screwed up on photobucket

 

I took the advice of someone upstring about another photo
hosting website that seems workable so far.

But it is weird, esp since I've been using photobucket without
any problems whatsoever for like 10 years at least.

6. I learned about using Photobucket for posting photos here on DU and it's working for me

I posted a pic of my dog in The Lounge about an hour ago. It was way too large, took it with my phone, so I edited it, cropped it a little and made it smaller, and used the Direct link.

9. Have you used up all the space they give you?

They have limits--maybe you have exceeded them?

10. No, actually as I recall it's telling me I still have lots of room.

 

but maybe I'll double check on that, just to be sure.

Thanks for the suggestion.

11. Maybe try signing out and signing back in? Do a "clear cookies" as well?

Good luck-I haven't had any trouble with them thus far.
