The other day I tried to hotlink to A2K an image from my photobucket library, but got a 3rd party hosting message:

Photobucket has begun to charge a fee for hotlinking.

I quit putting stuff on there probably five years ago.

@InfraBlue,
I saw that. I have been moving stuff around and off ever since.

I quit Photobucket about 3 months ago (after 5 years) when a so-called site update seemed to kill my free account. I went to Imgbox and all seemed good but recently they said they were closing on June 30 so I signed up with Imgur which seems very hassle-free. Just now I found out that Imgbox didn't shut down after all, so I have 2 free image hosters. This is hotlinked to Imgbox...

This is from Imagebam where you get a thumbnail option as here:

@InfraBlue,
Dump them already. That attempt to charge is utter nonsense.
