I'm completely buggerd. I have 35 pages of photos on PB and they are all useless. As for trying on other sites I've no chance I'm no good at that stuff ..

I'll do a "swapping photobucket images for flickr" guide :Y it will be using a web browser, not an App as editing posts is not something you can do with an App.

Hoovie,
Have you considered / rejected https://imgbb.com/?

Image

It appears to be free, simple to use and explicitly focused on providing BB codes for third party hosting etc.

In particular, it offers a forum add-on to enable image uploading ... might this work for us?

Image

Just a thought as it might mean that images posted on the forum were less reliant on individual members maintaining their own image libraries.

And another one (similar to imgbb) that seems dead simple to use and doesn't require an account / login: http://postimages.org/

Again it provides code to add image uploading to message boards, blogs or websites: http://postimages.org/plugins

The embedded image includes a hotlink back to the postimages site and far as I can tell they (postimages) make their money when viewers click on that link ...

I looked at imgbb :Y
Created an account and uploaded a lot of the forums "housekeeping" images onto it (headers, smilies, etc) so thanks for telling me about it :s_howdy
I am not able to load the forum 'mod' here as we buy a managed/hosted service for the forum and the hosts are always wary about 3rd party add-ons as an add-on for one forum is an add-on for all forums. Without the add-on it is quite awkward to use if using for a bunch of photos.


Postimages sounds like it might be good for ad-hoc picture uploads.
If there is no login needed, then I would guess once uploaded, an image cannot be removed? Something to consider if planning to use and what you may and may not want to upload.

They cover that eventuality in their FAQ:
postimage wrote:I have uploaded an image anonymously. How can I delete it?

Please find in your browser history the page that loaded when you had just uploaded the image in question; the last link in the code box links to a page that allows you to remove an anonymously uploaded image from our website.

... sort of ... but TBH, if I were planning to use it myself, I'd create an account ...

Point taken on the subject of the managed service - bother - I'll stop looking for that sort of solution! :D
[it would be nice though]

<snip>

It's a URL Don. Specifically this one: https://www.flickr.com/photos/130124111@N03/shares/30U8b6 and it points to the page where you've shared your photo.

The image itself is:
ImageUntitled by Don Coffey, on Flickr
(I went for the 800x600 version)

Edit:
From the page referred to by the URL, click on the image to be shared.
Next, click the curly arrow bottom right to get the sharing options.
Choose the BBCode that you want and paste into the post ...
