    Sure I can upload some of the newer stuff again to a new service, but there's historic posts on forums that I don't keep track of that will be completely useless now. It will kill a lot of forums completely I imagine as none of the threads will have any photos anymore!

    A) Because I suspect their T&C say they now own the photos
    B) Neither do I even if they go back on their decision, people will choose to boycott them now.

    Personally I use http://postimages.org/ for forum stuff.

    Just drop files and it gives you BBcode, Direct links or HTML.

    It seems they did make it difficult for a while to mass IMG pics

    ooooooh Imgur is what PB used to be, so easy to use. Think last time I tried it there wasn't an easy way to select all pics, and mass produce IMG codes, just one by one click click. Now in the my image view it lets me mass produce IMG for forum

    For reference coiler here are Imgur thumbnail sizes:

    Medium:


    Large:


    Huge:


    Original:



    With these sizes I don't think people need to do any clicking through. Imgur is really simple image sharing and flickr is more aimed at photographers as it has a lot more features.
