I have several methods for posting media.I pay for Dropbox,Onedrive and Vimeo.
--------

God I miss proper FTP.
None of my media parses correctly when I try to post it here (or any forum)....it just shows up as a link.
:angry2:

-------

Hardware Canucks has been gracious enough to host my pictures for a while.
I want to (pay for) a rock solid image host that parses correctly.It's gotta be somewhere that's gonna last too.....I'd like to see my pictures here on a permanent basis....

....and no, I don't wanna do my own FTP.

Thoughts ?

You could subscribe to ImageShack? They've been around forever, looks to be $40/yr.

Not really sure why you'd subscribe to Dropbox & OneDrive since they're basically the same products. Likewise, if you have Amazon Prime, they offer unlimited photo storage (including RAW) for free. For another $60 they offer unlimited file storage (in Canada still, they capped it in the US).

If I'm reading the OP correctly, he's looking for something that'll show up embedded on the forum as opposed to as a link. That's the main requirement.

edit: something like this...



(That's speedtest.net using the "forum" selection)

{URL=http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6667397424]{IMG]http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6667397424.png{/IMG]{/URL]

That's the format you need for an embedded third party image.

Why not setup with Digital Ocean for $5/month and install your own PHP gallery setup?
