yes its a shame but so many image hosting sites either vanish or change their policy to 'no longer free' & proceed to close accounts, or put their logo through all the images you've uploaded
& we all know the plot ... & yet we all still do it ...what seems like an attractive partner, we can't help ourselfs .... It is a long term plan of many hosts , like a trap, you upload months, years worth of images, then it changes & sometimes without warning , without the chance to download your original images & put elsewhere , i think its quite naughty

DeviantArt is an image hosting and networking site that has long outlived many of the other competing photo-sharing and storage services. Boasting a whopping 47 million members, DeviantArt is currently the largest online art community in the entire world.
I guess its better to use a host where you register



For quick image upload to here to freemodding i use, ***quality remains as good as my source image
https://imgur.com/upload
it adds the correct code too for image embedding
but be warned ... no doubt eventually the fate of this site will be the same as tinypic

another option i am using more now for images is ...
Internet Archive is a non-profit library
! No-Advertising here !
https://archive.org/
( go here ^^^)
you will have to register here but they have been around i think since birth of net & i don't think they will be vanishing any time soon & its FREE
it is a little more convoluted process to upload images but once you're used to it its really nice
I am not connected to this organisation but these guys are worth supporting , worth donating to, i believe they are based in California (the funky state ...) where thinking seems a little different & positive.
