I love this forum and have used the information in several applications and I thank all of you for that! My biggest problem is I cannot for the life of me get the Photobucket pictures to come in focus. I have used Apple products and I thought it was that and I currently using a chromebook to try to get the pictures in focus. I have tried to search Photobucket in the site to remedy but cannot find anything. I am currently trying to mess with rear shock adjustments and there appears to be an awesome "how to" guide on this but I cannot see the pictures. Thank you for any help on this and sorry if I posted in wrong section.

Photobucket started blurring out pictures for users that didn't want to pay another ransom.

We took a hit here when photobucket pulled the plug on hosting a few years back now. But free means you have very limited control of your content. For business reasons, I'm not privy to, photobucket made the call to remove all free hosting. It left a lot of very useful threads here less pictures. In a manner of speaking it's sort of a ransom attack.

I've used SmugMug for about 15 years. It's a paid service starting at $48 per year. Very good service IMHO. Some people won't pay a penny for photo hosting, however. Their choice. To me if a picture is worth taking and developing a narrative around it, $4/mth is well worth hosting it. Photo hosting has so many other advantages too. If you shop around I'd imagine you can get an expensive basic hosting service for less than $48.

I encourage people to learn this lesson and use a durable hosting method.

Thank you so much for your responses! Been a member for two years and love every second of it. I thought the pictures was only me and now I can relax. I am completely stupid in regards to any technology. If I take the smugmug application will I be able to see the photobucket pictures and others? Again thanks for your responses and have a great New Year.

A belated thanks for the kind words. Really sorry about the photobucket debacle. Next person that wants to do an in depth help thread, I can host photos from my account. Not the most convenient mechanism so it needs to be on a selected basis.

Oh yes, don't beat yourself up on technology. All of us are experiencing a measure of ignorance at varying levels. It's all gotten very complex over the years.
