Default Another Alternative

Is there an alternative to Photo bucket for pic posting? The bucket is so crowded with ads and junk that it takes forever to download pictures and get them from there to here. I tried tapatalk on my iPhone but never got the knack for it. Any other picture hosting sites out there that will work?

Flickr is great for this purpose.
Free account includes 1tb of storage for an indefinite period. You can use it as a cloud backup service, and share from it.

I've found a fast way to get a photo uploaded here is to post it on Facebook and then link it here. Works a whole lot faster than photobucket. And you're spot on right about photobucket. It's gotten so ad infested that it nearly freezes up my computer. It's durn near worthless as a photo hosting site anymore.

I rate photo bucket up there with the taliban.
It is useless to me. I have gotten to where I want
even look at a post when it is posted with this photo bucket crap.
sorry!! I know I'm missing some good fish pic.
Maybe as great fishing site this great board is we can come up with something
better in the future.

I hear ya fishnpreacher. If the pics are in your hard drive, try postimage.com. Fast, easy, and no ad clutter.

Try attaching one picture at a time to unload - the upload is fast - try to upload 5 pictures it take forever - doing 1 at a time is a pain but better than waiting hours
