I recently logged into my tinypic account and found the following message on my screen.

It's not really surprising. Tinypic is/was a subsidiary of PhotoBucket. They did exactly the same thing by trying to convince a user to buy a $60.00 minimum account per annum after providing a free service for many years. It's the Walter White syndrome, "Corner the market, raise the price." I will be trying Imgur which is said to be a reliable image hosting service. One can expect this to be temporary as well. Anything free typically doesn't stay free in this world.

Time to look for another site! :headlbash: I suppose that means there will be notifications everywhere "Image no longer available"!

I've been using Imgur since PB went all.. well you know. So far, it's been great, I hope it stays up and running... fingers crossed.

Thanks MAC, I'm now moved over and registered. It's good to hear your input on this. I should have come to you for advise. I was using Photobucket since 2003 until they tried ransoming your images. After a quick look I found Tinypic but it wasn't until I was settled had I realized it was a satellite of Photobucket. It was always on the back of my mind, when will TinyPic pull the same scam. Thankfully I had only 45 images there Fifteen minutes later all were archived. Once it's settled with the board, all my stuff will disappear from TinyPic.

From MAC's endorsement, I would also encourage any hosting to be done by IMGUR.

Thanks again.

Sometimes it takes a push to get things right.

Though it doesn't have as many bells and whistles as PB, I find it's very easy to use.
