Well, it appears that you now are required to pay copious amounts of money for third party. Which means, nearly all of my build log pictures are now dead links. Thanks, Photobucket. I've been using you for roughly 15 years, enduring your awful slow load time, the constant crashes and ad-heavy BS, and this is how it goes...

Any suggestions on good sources of photo storage? I'm thinking Google Drive, I'll have to see what the limit is.

Imgur? Been using them for years. I really like the mechanics for uploading, sorting albums etc. You can get it to spit out a list of IMG tags too. I especially like how you can take a link and add a letter to the end to change the output. Ex. xxyyzz.jpg, make it xxyyzzl.jpg to display the image resized to a large thumbnail (perfect for forum posts), xxyyzzh.jpg for a 'huge' thumbnail, etc.

For your build log, pics can be uploaded directly to this site...Thus preventing the same thing from happening again in the future. I can't comment on other general image hosting though, as I don't really do much of that.

Not a good solution. They've started blacklisting popular forums because they don't want to be an image host anymore, they want to be a community. Google "Imgur blocked forum" to see all of the threads on boards like bimmerforums, garagejournal, ars technica, and tons of other forums. I lost several build threads that I had used Imgur for. If too many people here use Imgur, they'll just block us.
