    Yeah...a lot of us are pi$$ed off by PB's recent hostage/ransom situation...but there's already a thread for that. Where are you moving your guitar porn collection...and why?

    I am moving to Flickr since I already have a Yahoo! account. I was thinking Google too but I keep all my personal stuff on there. I am thinking of using Flickr for only guitar related stuff.

    I went Imgur for no real reason over any of the others. I was going to use Google, but I seem to recall some people having issue with it?

    I Imurgrated. :D
    From what I read, they keep every thing more "private". No location tags and such.
    I'm not that great with these interwebs things.

    I think I'm going with postimg.org
    No mobile app, but the browser interface works fine for uploads and getting links for here

    The first thing I did after creating a Flickr account was change all the privacy and security settings so that it did not share too much info.

    It should work, as long as your chosen browser lets you ferret out a path to the exact file location, but that process adds an unnecessary step or two. (Nerd note: there are available plug-ins for the XenForo platform that may make photo integration easier for users, but might create extra work or cost on the administrative side, so boo to that.)

    However, using Google photos would count against your freebie 15GB of Drive storage, which isn't a big deal for some users, but it's probably quicker and easier just to use the quality freebies.

    I'm just glad there are free options still available. No idea how people tolerated Photobucket for so long with the awful UI and ads. Hate to see everyone lose their free storage and all the associated time & effort, but I sincerely wish Photobucket the worst. :p

    Imgur. It seems to work and it doesn't leave a little meta stamp like Flickr.

    You should be able to change those security settings I'm pretty sure.

    Do you see anything in my test picture that you were concerned about? I just want to make sure I have the security settings set right.
