Photobucket: Issues and Alternatives for builders

    So, saw Photobucket began blocking accounts for third party hosting (ie saving pix and then posting to Tamriel Vault for example).  Here's a link to Mason's build to see how it's affecting some builds.

    So, any workarounds for that for builders?  Any other free saving sites to upload photos as needed for builds?

    Two of my builds got screwed over this too. I think the best way is to upload the pictures directly into the discussion.

    For my naming guides, I usually download the picture and create a album on here, and do it that way.

    Using the insert option requires an outside source.  The upload will work, just an extra step to say use my screenshots from Steam.  I have to copy then paste to Paint, then save that and then upload.

    Stickied for visibility so we can get more eyes on this. I upload like Noodles and TNK, but I'll check around for some better image hosts. Been a minute since I've used one.

    Imgur and Google Photos are probably the best look

    Usually I upload directly to here, but Google would be a place I'd look into.

    Are you sure? I have inserted images I have saved on here on my guides without needing a outside source.

    I saw that several times now, don't remember which builds, but some don't even have pictures anymore.

    Insert Image requires an outside source; Upload image does not.

    I've been using the TamrielVault image albums for all the images I've been using, actually. Is that not a thing?
