As many people already know, Photobucket is a piece of crap company that is ransoming your photos. They want $400 for you to share a photo on another site. A billion photo links spread across the web are broken. If you have any suggestions on where to store pics in the cloud, let me know.

I store them in my computer picture files and my phone.

There is a photobucket affiliated site that is still free. Not sure if you can store pics there, or if it is just for posting. But I've used it a few times, like for my avatar pic.

I guess it still works. I rarely post pics, no smartphone, crappy flip phone camera, and my old computer is slow.

I am now keeping my photos in Drop Box and Google Photos Sync and Backup. Then copying what I want to post online to postmg.org. I certainly don't want them in one place again!

Wise advice. I backup to DVD burned at slowest speed available, to hard disk (when I upgrade a PC the old disk gets stashed safely) and online.

Your objective should be easy data reload to a new machine even if everything you own is destroyed. That includes loading a new drive or PC from bare metal. Computers are life.
