Image hosting advice
Is there a decent image hosting place where I can link to these forums WITHOUT having to make them so widely available?

I've used Imgur for the few photo's but in order for that to work, you have to show the entire community your photo's. It's a large community and I try to keep my footprint a bit smaller with sensitive, and potentially personally identifiable information.

I'd love to show some pictures of my cat and my dog for instance, but on Imgur someone might recognize my animals, and I don't need to be stalked by my family (it's happened before).

I've tried sharing from my google drive and photo's folders but they don't work correctly.

As big as I am on computers, I've only recently been more active on forums, so I really haven't ever dug too deep in this. Some are kind enough to host images themselves (considering how much space is required for that I'm not surprised TTA doesn't).

Anyone have ideas on this?

I use https://postimage.io/. You can get a direct link to the image meaning you can post an image here without having a link for anyone to click on.

I use http://www.photobucket.com
I have no idea anymore if I have it on "public" or what. Consider I only use it for here so, I don't actually care who sees it.

I have photobucket too, but it has gotten so slow that I went to Imgur, which has now gotten slow...so I'm looking again. Laugh out load

This looks good.
Is it fast and is there a limit?
Do they have a fuck ton of adds? I think that's what slows down photobucket.

I use photo bucket. It can be slow, but I only use it a little (like for this forum) so it's okay for that purpose.
