    My husband and I find using photo bucket a pain to use, especially with the adds and popups and slowness, you might be interested to know that we now use Google photos as an alternative

    https://www.google.com/photos/about/

    How to upload google photos (instructions for using with a lap top, might be different when using a smart phone or tablet)

    1. Click on your selected photo

    2. Click on the funny arrow < with the dots on all three points (top right hand above the cursor in next photo)

    4. Click on copy

    5. Open up another window in your browser and Go to https://ctrlq.org/google/photos/

    6. Paste your link into the box and click on generate code

    7. When generated, the page will automatically scroll down to the bottom, just copy the direct link (URL) code and use the code as you would normally do to post a picture

    Thanks Jess...
    I'm going to move this to the Technical section, so that we can easily find it again, for other members who may want help with hoot hosting :thumbsup:
