I should add, that imgbox.com seems to be free from advertising as well. The thing I can't work out is how do they make money with it ?

Sorry, couldn't help but to put up another image FOC !

I have it working, sort of ? The top image is from Photobucket, the second is from imgbox at 200x200 px, and the third image is 350x350 px. 350 seems to be the max. I haven't been able to get better than this. If someone can figure it out better, let me know.

It looks like you are posting a thumbnail image rather than a full size image.

That's what it is. I haven't figured out how to post a better image. :)

I've not read through the conditions but maybe it specifies a certain number of hostings before it stops you from doing it, anyone know what it is ?


Still working ...

I still reckon that Nightspore's image above is just embedded on the Shed (and therefore using the Shed's storage) - it is the ones that are linked to Photobucket that no longer work (so that when you click on the image it takes you to Photobucket) - just my understanding
